This past weekend in Philadelphia, the 2012 Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft was conducted. Current Villanova senior attackmen Kevin Cunningham (Garden City, NY/Kellenberg High School) was selected 19th by the Boston Cannons. The draft consisted of 8 rounds and 64 overall picks. Upon graduation, Cunningham will report to the defending champion's organization.
Cunningham will be a captain for the 2012 Wildcats, as he comes off a stellar junior campaign in which he notched 24 goals and 21 assists. In addition, he was a unanimous selection to the All-Big East First Team last year. Cunningham commented on his selection to the MLL after the draft:
"It's a great feeling and I'm very excited. It's an honor to join the Boston Cannons, the defending champions, and I hope to contribute as best I can."
