NLL Camp Notes: Wings Rookie Camp

This past weekend the Philadelphia Wings had their free agent/rookie camp to see who makes it to the 40 man camp roster with the veterans.  Unfortunately, there was no way to identify a lot of players there, but their were a few that I knew from previous interviews/meetings.

A surprise at the camp was a former Wing looking to get back into the game after a concussion. Local product and Ridley High standout Bill McGlone put a solid performance this past weekend.  McGlone is in a lot better shape now then he was when he last played.  McGlone said he tried losing weight, but it turned to muscle instead, so that’s a good thing.

Others that stood out this past weekend, James Delaney,Garrett Thul, Eric Holt, Kyle Buchanan, and Patrick Crosby.

The coaches had the free agents/draft picks play a four on four game.  Manos and Crosby were the two goaltenders, and while they both struggled with short side shots, Crosby seemed to edge out Manos.

Holt was a monster on defense finishing every check and making the forwards earn every step on the floor.

Delaney, Thul, & Buchanan did very well on the offensive side of the ball.  No score was kept.

Rob Pannell was a no show this past weekend.

40 man roster camp with veterans start  this Friday night.  They continue with two sessions on Saturday and one on Sunday.
