2013 Regular Season Roster Announced


The Ohio Machine announced today its 2013 regular season roster with only 10 days left until the 2013 Home Opener on Saturday, May 4.

 

 

"I was very pleased with the positive energy and determination that all of the players brought to the playing field during the past two weekends of training camp," said Machine Head Coach Ted Garber. "Our coaching staff was very impressed with the intense work ethic, disciplined team work and competitive spirit that each of the players demonstrated throughout the training camp sessions. Consequently, our current 25-man roster is comprised of players who we believe gives us our best options to compete at a successful level during this stage of the season. As our players from the NLL and the college draft become part of the mix, we will continue to evaluate our best options for the team as the season progresses."

 

The 2013 roster consists of four goalies, nine defenders, 10 midfielders, six attackmen and two face-off specialists. The 2013 roster also includes five former The Ohio State University lacrosse players with defensemen Greg Bice and Matt Cafarelli, attackman Mario Ventiquattro, face-off specialist Eric O’Brien and goalkeeper Stefan Schroder.

The Machine welcomes back 21 players from the 2012 roster including 2012 Ohio Machine MVP and 2012 All-MLL defenseman Kyle Hartzell and 2012 Ohio Machine Offensive Player of the Year Chazz Woodson. Hartzell is currently playing in the National Lacrosse League and is able to join the team, along with Kiel Matisz and Chad Wiedmaier, at the end of the 2013 NLL season in May.

Steele Stanwick is also coming back as one the top attackmen for the team following up his rookie season after tallying 11 goals and 17 assists for a total of 28 points in only nine games. The 2011 Tewaaraton recipient Stanwick led the Machine, as well as MLL rookies, in assists and was fourth on the team for points.

"Steele showed consistent brilliant flashes of rapidly becoming one of the top offensive players in the league during training camp," said Garber. "His uncanny knack for finding the open man to get the ball to opened up a lot of tremendous scoring chances for his teammates.  You know some one is a very good player when he is able to make the other players around him better, which Steele certainly does."

The Machine added nine new players to its roster, including Colgate midfielder and the Machine’s first pick in the 2013 MLL Supplemental Draft Jeff Ledwick. Ledwick helped lead Colgate University to the 2012 NCAA Quarterfinals as team captain. In 2012, Ledwick started in all 18 games of his senior season as a midfielder and finished the season third on his team with 47 points from 32 goals and 15 assists. Ledwick also led the team and the Patriot League with nine man-up goals, while collecting 14 groundballs and forcing two turnovers. In addition, he earned several honors including 2012 USILA All-America Honorable Mention and 2012 All-Patriot League First Team, as well as being selected to play in the USILA/Lax World Division I-II North-South Senior All Star Game.

 

"Jeff displayed not only tremendous fundamental skills and athletic ability during training camp, but he also demonstrated a great understanding of how to play as an effective and dangerous offensive scoring threat both as an initiator and as a reactor in 6 v 6 settled situations. It will be interesting to see how he further develops as the season progresses," said Garber.

 

The Machine opens up its season at home on Saturday, May 4, against the Denver Outlaws. The “OSU Sports Medicine Night” Home Opener will include exclusive giveaways and post-game fireworks. Tickets start at $12 for General Admission and $18 for Sideline Reserved. The Machine is also offering “College Night” discounts with $10 walk up tickets and $1 specials throughout the game to college students with a proper college ID.
