To round out the draft, the Swarm selected Rick Lewis of Ohio State University No. 50 overall (sixth-round), who projects to be a transition type player in the NLL.
Lewis made history Monday evening as he became the first Georgia player to be selected by the Georgia Swarm. The Cumming, Ga. native was a captain at Ohio State with Jesse King, and was a two-time AJC Lacrosse Player of the Year at St. Pius X Catholic School.
"It's amazing for Rick," King said. "He's a wonderful locker room guy, has a great attitude and is another guy who will work his tail off every single game."
"We've heard great things about Rick from his coaches and teammates at Ohio State," Swarm head coach Ed Comeau said. "Giving someone an opportunity who is from the area to come out and try to crack our roster is great for the local lacrosse players."
