Boston, MA – (February 11, 2019) – Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced today details around draft prospect and Towson faceoff specialist, Alex Woodall.
Towson University is a public university in Towson, Maryland. The Tigers men’s lacrosse team was founded in 1958. The Tigers were a Division II team from 1974-1979.
