Daniggelis Picked in PLL Draft

Daniggelis Picked in PLL Draft

Yale Captain Taken by Whipsnakes LC

 

STAMFORD, Conn.John Daniggelis was likely more focused on completing his final undergraduate semester and getting his teammates firing on all cylinders for the end of the regular season and the beginning of tournament play. However, on Tuesday, while the Yale captain was leading his No. 4 ranked team to a win at home, he was selected in the inaugural Premier Lacrosse League Collegiate Draft by Whipsnakes LC.

 

Daniggelis, a senior midfielder from Saint James, N.Y., was the 21st selection in the draft televised by NBCSN. He has 16 points and 23 ground balls this year for the 10-2 Bulldogs who play at Harvard on Saturday. He was also selected by the New York Lizards in the 2019 MLL Draft.

 

The PLL is a tour-based pro-sports model. The season begins in June 2019 with six teams embarking on a 14-week season that concludes with a playoff and PLL Championship Game. The PLL season will be distributed through an exclusive media-rights agreement with NBC Sports Group.
