This college lacrosse season we’re excited to have 23 Powell Athletes dotting the lacrosse landscape in Division 1, Division 2, & Division 3. 

With college athletes now being able to sign NIL deals, we knew we wanted to get a group of dedicated and talented players together that could help Powell Lacrosse continue to grow in the lacrosse community. We also wanted to give these players a chance to grow their personal brands, get experience working with a lacrosse company, and gain more national exposure (especially for the D2 and D3 players). We chose these players for their exceptional play on the field and because we believe they are great ambassadors of lacrosse. It has been exciting to see them use Powell sticks on the field this season, wear our apparel, and help us on our mission to explore the field. 

Let’s meet the 2022 College Powell Athletes!

Powell LacrosseDivision 1

Logan McNaney
Sophomore – Goalie – Maryland 

Maryland lost by one goal in the 2021 National Championship and Logan can’t wait for the chance to get back to Memorial Day. The Corning, NY native brings the Upstate mentality to a Maryland team that has been the standard for excellence in college lacrosse in the past decade. Starting in net as a freshman is a daunting task, but Logan went in with no fear and even scored a goal in his first college season. Maryland remains undefeated in 2022 and we’re excited to watch Logan as he the Terps start their journey back to the Final Four. 

 

Ross Burgmaster
Sophomore – Defense – Notre Dame

Ross is ready to step up and have a bigger impact for the Fighting Irish defense heading into the 2022 season, but it turns out he has an even bigger role to fill. Ross was selected as the 10th bagpiper in Notre Dame lacrosse history since the tradition began in 1990. Before each game he leads his team onto the field playing the bagpipes and firing them up with one of the coolest traditions in college lacrosse.  The long pole from Auburn, NY plays with Upstate grit as a part of the strong Notre Dame defense. Hopefully we’ll see Ross leading the Irish with his bagpipes deep into May. 

Division 2

Nate Arnold
Senior – Defense – Le Moyne

Nate Arnold is the emotional leader of a team that worked through tragedy to raise the trophy on championship weekend last year. Playing for their teammate Kaiden Tubbert, Le Moyne battled through adversity and ultimately was able to pull off a perfect season under tough circumstances of the pandemic. Nate was the anchor on defense and is eager to end his college career with another trophy. 

 

Carter Collins
Senior – Attack – Le Moyne

Carter Collins is a newcomer to the Dolphins, but is ready to step in and help them on the road to back to back championships. He is a do-it-all attackman who can score, feed, and direct the offense from X. After a stellar career at Lindenwood, the Minnesota native is excited for the new opportunity at Le Moyne and to be a part of an Upstate squad. 

 

Myles Moffat
Senior – Attack – Lenoir Rhyne

Myles is a crafty scorer whose Alberta box lacrosse roots make him a threat whenever he touches the ball. Lenoir-Rhyne had a magical run to the D2 National Championship in 2021 and they are ready to prove that they belong at Championship weekend every season. Myles is ready to lead the Bears on another run this May. 

 

Luke McAnaney
Senior – Attack – Tampa

Although he stands at 5’6, Luke plays big for his team when they need it most. Tampa has been on a roll all season as they look to stay undefeated and play on Memorial Day weekend. Be on the lookout for #45 as he uses his Upstate mentality to get to the dirty areas and make plays for the Spartans. 

 

Anthony Caputo
Junior – Midfield – Pace

Anthony has made a big impact in his first full season of college lacrosse not affected by the pandemic. The Long Island native is a great dodger who really gets the Pace offense going from up top with his cannon of a shot. We’re proud to have a #22 on the Powell Athlete squad! 

 

Danny Riley
Senior – Midfield – Wingate

Danny is coming off of a 1st Team All-American season in which he scored the overtime winning goal for Wingate to advance to its first ever NCAA Final Four. He can sling it with his right or left hand from up top and wants the ball in his stick when the game is on the line. He will be a huge piece of Wingate’s powerful offense that is ready to make it back to the Final Four and beyond. 

 

Shawn Doran
Junior – Faceoff – Mercyhurst

Shawn is one of the top faceoff guys in D2 and is ready to help Mercyhurst return to championship weekend. He isn’t afraid to go to the rack after he wins the faceoff as he loves to spark fast breaks for the Lakers. We can see the Upstate mentality he has as he battles on the faceoff to do anything to get his team the ball. 

 

Justin Gerdvil
Junior – LSM – Mercy

Justin is a steady presence for the Mavericks as he scoops up GBs and locks it down on defense. The Long Island native is helping Mercy to one of its best seasons ever so far in 2022. A Third Team All-American last season, he is prepared to step up and help Mercy take the next step as a program and make a deep run in the playoffs this May. 

 

Payton Leonard
Senior – Defense – Catawba

Payton plays with a free wheeling style that reminds us of how the Powell brother’s played. The only difference is that Payton uses a long stick to make his magic happen as he vacuums up every GB in sight and sparks transition for Catawba. He is working hard to be the best leader he can for his Catawba squad. He is hoping to use his extra year of eligibility from the Covid year to continue to make big plays in 2023. 

 

Andrew Avarello
Senior – Goalie – Mount Olive

Andrew has been the backbone of the Mount Olive defense for the past few seasons and has helped put them on the national radar. He has put up some big save numbers and his play helped Mount Olive reach the NCAA Playoffs last season. The Buffalo native has been one of the top goalies in D2 since he ventured down south and stepped in the cage for the Trojans. 

Division 3

Luke Pilcher
Sophomore – Attack – RIT

Luke is hoping to add to the great history of Canadians at RIT and his silky stick skills will help him pile in the goals for the Tigers this season. He watched from the sidelines as RIT won their first ever National Championship in Overtime in 2021, but is ready to make a much bigger contribution on the starting attack line as the Tigers look to repeat. 

 

Dylan Rice
Senior – Attack – CNU

Dylan will do whatever it takes to help Christopher Newport lacrosse get to the National Championship. He has been a huge part of helping the Captains continue to rise in the D3 ranks season after season with his play making and leadership. We have no doubt that he will be a D3 Player of the Year candidate as he is the offensive catalyst who can score in the big moments for a talented CNU squad. 

 

Ryan Gebhardt
Senior – Attack – MIT

Lacrosse runs in the Gebhardt family with some heavy Upstate ties. His uncle played with Ryan and Casey Powell at Syracuse and his father played goalie at Nazareth. Now he is hoping to make a mark in his last season by helping MIT reach the playoffs and get his name in the history books as he is on the path to becoming the all-time goals leader in D3. 

 

Terrence Haggerty
Senior – Attack – Farmingdale State

Terrence is in his 6th year of college lacrosse after he was given an opportunity to play one more year at Farmingdale State. Like many others in the college ranks, the Covid canceled seasons have given Terrence another chance to keep playing the game that he loves. He is a goal scoring machine and is going to give the Rams a chance to make a splash in the NCAA playoffs. 

 

Ryan Coleman
Junior – Midfield – Stevenson

Ryan is a balanced midfielder who can thread a pass through the defense or hit a corner coming down the alley. The Virginia native has become a key contributor for a Stevenson team that is ready return to the NCAA playoffs. Look out for Ryan as he shakes and bakes from up top for the Mustangs. 

 

Jon Roth
Senior – Midfield – Nazareth

Jon is a playmaking midfielder who hopes to bring Nazareth back to championship weekend. The Rochester native is a captain of his hometown team and is determined to lead them against a tough Empire 8 conference. He can score with a rip from the top, on the run, or by catching a tough feed in traffic. We hope to see Jon and the Golden Flyers make a run this May. 

 

Thomas Muraski
Sophomore – Faceoff – Norwich

Thomas has a slightly different schedule than many of our other Powell Athletes. Norwich is a military institution and Thomas has to fulfill his duties as an officer in training and go to his normal classes before he can step on the lacrosse field. He works hard to be ready to win faceoffs for a Cadets team that is on the rise. 

 

Chris Darminio
Junior – LSM – Lynchburg

Chris is one of the best LSMs in D3 lacrosse. He has been instrumental to the Hornets success so far this season as a part of their solid defensive group. He is a menace with his stick checks and is always ready to spark transition as flies down the field to score goals. He will be a key part of Lynchburg making a push for Championship weekend this May. 

 

Kevin Parisi
Senior – Defense – Utica

Kevin is a solid defensemen for the Pioneers who loves to run up the field and spark his team with a goal. The Utica lacrosse team is playing for their former coach Mike Parnell this season after he tragically passed away this past January. It will be special to watch Kevin and his teammates play with extra motivation when they step on the field.

 

Joe Scarfi
Senior – Defense – St. Lawrence

Joe is a swiss army knife defender who can lock it down 1 on 1 or run up the field to score game changing goals for St. Lawrence. After a great season during the struggles of the pandemic in 2021, he is ready to help the Saints take the next step and make a run back to the NCAA playoffs in May. 

 

Jack Michael
Senior – Goalie – York 

Jack is a Michigan native who has cemented himself as one of the best goalies in York lacrosse history. Thanks to his athletic saves and great clearing ability, he always gives the Spartans a chance to pull out a win. In his senior season, we know Jack will come up big for a great York team that is hoping to make a splash in the playoffs.

Powell Lacrosse

It has been exciting to follow along as all of our Powell Athletes have been working hard to help their teams battle for a spot in the NCAA playoffs. Good luck to all of them as they begin their conference tournaments and hope to see their team’s name on the Selection Sunday brackets. #TeamPowell
