Rattlers and Launch Make Huge Trade

Florida Launch v Rochester Rattlers
The Rochester Rattlers and Florida Launch have just completed a deal that sends Miles Thompson to Florida, an eventually will collaborate with his brother for the first time since the two were named Tewaaraton co-winners at University of Albany in 2014. The Rattlers receive face-off specialist Mike Poppleton and the rights to 2015 Draft pick Kevin Rice, along with a sixth round 2016 MLL Supplemental Draft pick. The Launch will also receive a fourth round draft pick in the 2016 draft.
The Launch will have to wait for Lyle Thompson to join as University of Albany squares off with Cornell this weekend in NCAA first round games.
