Roy Lang traded to Ohio Machine

Roy Lang 
Roy Lang, SI 2x HS AA, Cornell 2x NCAA DI AA, and Tewaaraton semi-finalist,  had a terrific first MLL season with the Rochester Rattlers. So good, in fact, that he was a hot commodity as other teams sought to upgrade their rosters. And, as often happens, Roy was sought by, and traded to, the Ohio Machine today. Head Coach of the Machine, Ted Garber, said,""Roy has quickly proven to be one of the up and coming dynamic midfielders in the MLL. I was very impressed with him when we played the Rattlers last summer," said Garber. "In order to be able to trade for Roy, we had to give up Dan Groot a proven quality MLL player and a tremendous team member, but in the end I believe that the trade worked out for both the Machine and Rattlers in a positive way. Roy will give the Machine another tremendous athlete at the midfield position who will add to our offensive fire power."

Roy had 13 goals, 7 assists and 26 GBs in his rookie season.
