ALBANY, N.Y. – Former UAlbany midfielder Ryan Feuerstein is the latest Great Dane to get a chance at the professional ranks, being drafted by the Rochester Rattlers in the Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Supplemental Draft on Wednesday.

Feuerstein was selected by the Rattlers in the 4th round and 31st overall in the draft.  The supplemental draft is held in December for teams to fill rosters after protecting their first 23 players.  Over 800 players entered the draft, including 100, like Feuerstein, that had not previously played in the league last season.

A two-time All-America East midfielder, including earning First Team honors in 2014, Feuerstein played at UAlbany from 2011-14, starting the last two seasons.  In his collegiate career, he scored 43 goals and 13 assists for 56 points, adding 111 ground balls and 21 caused turnovers.  His senior year, he finished with 22 goals, seven points, 43 ground balls and nine caused turnovers.

In his time at UAlbany, he helped the Great Danes win a pair of America East titles, scoring a pair of goals in each America East Tournament win in 2014.  He scored a goal and scooped five ground balls in UAlbany’s NCAA Quarterfinal game vs. Notre Dame.

Last season, UAlbany lacrosse players Miles Thompson and Ty Thompson each were drafted and suited up for the Rattlers.  Miles Thompson played nine games for the Rattlers, scoring 12 goals and seven assists.  Rochester was the league regular season champion with a 10-4 record, falling to the Denver Outlaws in the title game.

The supplemental draft was held via teleconference by the league and its teams.
