ALBANY, N.Y. – With the World Games starting in a week, several people with UAlbany ties, including Scott Marr and five players, will be part of the 2018 Iroquois Nationals roster.

Five UAlbany players, current Great Danes Tehoka Nanticoke and Ron John plus alumni Lyle Thompson, Miles Thompson and Ty Thompson, all made the 23-man Iroquois Nationals roster.  Nanticoke and all three Thompsons are listed at attack while John will be in the midfield.  Lyle and Miles Thompson were on the team for the 2014 World Games while Ty was a reserve; each Nanticoke and John played for the U19 Iroquois Nationals previously.

Marr will serve as an assistant coach and team’s offensive coordinator under head coach Mark Burnam.  Marr returns to the World Games in a coaching capacity, having helped team USA, last in 2006.

All six people will be heading to Israel for the 2018 World Games, starting on July 12th.  The Iroquois Nationals earned the bronze medal in the 2014 games, the first team the team finished in the top-three. 

The Iroquois Nationals play in the blue division, the top division in lacrosse, and begins its games in the tournament against the USA on July 12th. 

UAlbany will have representatives from either current players, alumni or coaches on the Iroquois Nationals, Canada, Israel, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Latvia.
