Tommy Kehoe, who in my opinion is the best collegiate player from Pittsburgh ever, and Peet Pollion were drafted yesterday marking the first time Pittsburgh talent was selected in the league.
20. Peet Poillon, Boston Cannons (Midfield, UMBC)
Prior to the pick, Quint said the Cannons would take a middie that could run alongside Paul Rabil. Despite the fact that Poillon’s frame and, to a lesser extent, his game could not be any different from Rabil’s, Poillon is a good addition because he is such a good passer.
Poillon attended Seneca Valley High School in Cranberry then Howard Juco, then Ohio State, then UMBC, now he gets to play with Paul Rabil. Not bad
37. Thomas Kehoe, Chicago Machine (Longstick midfield, Gettysburg)
The first DIII player taken, Kehoe is a stout defensive presence and turned heads by winning the Iroquois Award for DIII’s top player. Plus, as a charter member of the “90% of Lax Is the Flow,” he’s got the personality to fit in the MLL.
Kehoe attended Sewickly Academy my high school’s biggest rival. He had a brief stint at Pitt actually before transferring to Gettysburg.
Congratulations to both.
Oh yeah and Kristen Cavallari is back.
