Albany's Brock Chosen in National Lacrosse League Draft

TORONTO -- A pair of 2010 All-America East men's lacrosse performers were chosen in the National Lacrosse League Entry Draft Wednesday evening at Toronto's Westin Harbour Castle. University at Albany's Dave Brock and Stony Brook University's Steven Waldeck became the 15th and 16th standouts from the league drafted into the NLL within the last five years.

Brock, a second-team all-conference attack in 2010, was chosen in the first round, seventh overall, by the Boston Blazers. Also a sixth-round selection in the Major League Lacrosse Draft in June, Brock ranked fifth among conference leaders with 34 goals and seventh with 41 points last year. He was named to the America East All-Championship team after leading Albany to the championship game.

Waldeck, a first-team All-America East choice and honorable mention All-American last season, was selected in the sixth round, 55th overall, by the Minnesota Swarm. A long stick midfielder while at Stony Brook, Waldeck, who played in seven games for the Toronto Nationals of MLL this season, concluded his collegiate career with 313 ground balls, 17 goals and 11 assists. He was a three-time first-team all-league choice during his tenure and led the Seawolves to their first league title since 2002 last season.

The selections conclude another successful summer for former America East players. Eleven with league ties participated in the 2010 FIL World Lacrosse Championships with UMBC graduate Brendan Mundorf leading Team U.S.A. to the championship and earning All-Tournament honors. Three players, including Brock and Waldeck, were chosen in the MLL Draft on June 8.
