Tim Fallon Joins the Denver Outlaws' Roster

DENVER, Colo. Tim Fallon, a former member of University of Hartford , will continue his playing career at the professional level as he was claimed by the Denver Outlaws of the Major League Lacrosse in the player pool earlier this week. A two-time All-American at Hartford and recent 2011 graduate, Fallon put together one of the most decorated careers in program history.

A 5-10, 195 pound face-off specialist, Fallon closed out his career as the program's all-time leader in face-off percentage (.573) and ground balls (404). In addition, the Lowell, Mass. native owns Hartford's single season ground ball record, having registered 166 during his senior season. After leading the NCAA in both ground balls and face-off percentage as a junior in 2010, Fallon again proved to be one of the best face-off men in the nation in 2011, finishing second in ground balls per game (9.22) while posting the eighth-best percentage at the X (.621).

Fallon, who was a three-time America East All-Conference honoree as well as the 2011 New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's Player of the Year, played a key role in helping fuel the Hawks' historic run through the postseason this season. He dominated inside of the circle in the championship game, grabbing nine ground balls while winning 16 of 26 duels to help the Hawks defeat Stony Brook and earn the program's first-ever America East Tournament title. Throughout the tournament, Fallon won 66-percent of his face-offs (35 of 55) and combined for 27 ground balls en route to earning the tournament's most outstanding player award.

With an overall record of 3-1 on the young season, the Outlaws have eight games remaining on the 2011 regular season slate. Since the team's inaugural season in 2006, the Outlaws have made five-straight appearances in the MLL's playoffs.
