Machine midfielder Kyle Harrison and attackman Marcus Holman were named to the final 23-man Team USA roster for the upcoming FIL World Championship, US Lacrosse announced today. Harrison will represent the USA for the second time while Holman will don the red, white and blue for the first time.
In his first season with the Machine, Harrison currently ranks third on the team with 24 points. His 19 goals are second-most on the team. After a standout career at Johns Hopkins, Harrison represented the United States at the 2006 World Championships.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to represent my county with such an amazing group of player,” Harrison said. “As a child, no matter what sport you play, you dream about wearing a jersey with USA on the front of it. To be able to do it for the second time in my career is a dream come true.”
Holman is in his second season with the Machine. His 29 points rank second on the team and he is tied with Harrison for second on the team with 19 goals. During his rookie campaign last season, Holman posted 20 points in 10 games.
“It’s truly an honor to be selected to the 23-man roster to represent the United State in the World Championship in Denver,” Holman said. “It has certainly been a long process and I’ve tried to enjoy every second of it. Now it’s time for me and every member selected to come together and bring home a gold medal for our country.”
Harrison and Holman return to action with the Machine on Friday, July 4 at Selby Stadium when the Machine takes on the defending back-to-back champion Chesapeake Bayhawks. More information about the Machine’s 4th of July spectacular can be found at theohiomachine.com/july4.
