Kevin Leveille is a 10-year Lacrosse veteran and one of the most impressive athletes of the decade. He’s a player who’s shaped by not only natural talent but had a great upbringing that led to his success.
He played for the TAYA Chiefs and thrived in high school before finding a place at UMass, where he was a standout player since his freshman year.
As a freshman in 2000, he played in all 14 games, scored 10 goals and had seven assists, and topped off his season with a six-game goal streak. During Leveille’s sophomore year, he was chosen to try out for the 2002 USA men’s lacrosse team. He was named to the All ECAC second team and finished his sophomore season with 43 points.
As a junior, he continued to make a name for himself by being selected to the all ECAC first team and enjoyed playing in every single game since his start at UMass. His senior season was quite impressive, where he ended his time with UMass with an overall score of 159 points, and was named preseason all ECAC and preseason All-American.
He began his professional career with the Boston Cannons and was named the 2004 most improved player. After a successful few years with the Cannons, Leveille made the switch to Chicago, where he accumulated 157 goals in five years.
In 2011, he took a well-deserved break, and then returned for the Rochester Rattlers where he has been dominating ever since. Leveille currently holds the MLL record for the longest goal-scoring streak with 59 games in a row.
At the end of January, Leveille had an amazing showing at the Champion Challenge in Florida. It was at that point he was unquestionably a shoe-in for Team USA. He has been working towards this goal ever since he started playing lacrosse, and is excited to compete.
