Machine Announces 2014 Roster


The Ohio Machine (Machine), Ohio’s professional lacrosse team in Major League Lacrosse (MLL), announced today its 2014 regular season roster ahead of the team’s first game against Charlotte on Saturday, April 26.

The 2014 roster consists of three goalies, nine defenders, 16 midfielders and five attackmen. Additionally, defenseman Greg Bice, midfielder Kyle Harrison, attackman Steele Stanwick and goalie Brian Phipps were named team captains for 2014.

“Our captains for 2014 are a good mix of veterans and young guys that all share the same vision of where this team needs to be,” Head Coach Bear Davis said. “Bice and Harrison have seen success and failures at the highest levels so our young guys will learn a lot from them. It is also great to have leaders like Steele and Phipps. They have both led teams as players and are now leading teams as coaches at the collegiate level.”

“It’s an honor to be named a captain of this team,” Phipps said. “We have a great group of talented guys that are ready to form a new identity in the league. Our team has developed a great relationship off the field and is excited to get the season started this week.”

“I’m really humbled and honored to be named a captain on a team full of amazing leaders,” Stanwick said. “I know everyone is looking forward to the season with this great group of guys.”

The Machine welcomes back 23 players from the 2013 roster including leading scorer Logan Schuss and standout rookie Marcus Holman. Additionally, the 2014 roster includes seven former Buckeye lacrosse players with defensemen Greg Bice and Matt Cafarelli, midfielders Dominique Alexander and Kevin Mack, attackman Logan Schuss, face-off specialist Eric O’Brien and goalkeeper Stefan Schroder.

“I am honored to be named a captain of the 2014 Machine team,” Bice said. “We have a great group of guys and I expect big things out of this team.”

The Machine added nine new players to its roster, including former Tewaaraton Award winners Peter Baum and Kyle Harrison. Baum was drafted first overall by the Machine in 2013 and participated on the LXMPRO Tour last season. Harrison, who was named to Team USA for the 2014 World Championships, also played on the LXMPRO Tour.  The Machine also added former MLL All-Stars in Matt Dolente, Brian Farrell and Bill McGlone.

“I am humbled that my teammates have given me the honor of serving as one the captains for the Machine in 2014,” Harrison said. “Our team came together really well over training camp and we are looking forward to taking this team to the next level on the field this season.”

The Machine opens up its season on Saturday, April 26 when the team visits the Charlotte Hounds. The Machine’s home opener is on Saturday, May 17, against the New York Lizards. The “OSU Sports Medicine Night” Home Opener will include an OSU seat cushion and 2014 poster giveaway, as well as a post-game fireworks show. Tickets start at $12 for General Admission and $18 for Sideline Reserved.
