Baltimore, MD – Baltimore-based STX, LLC, a global sporting goods leader, today announced a two-year endorsement agreement with Major League Lacrosse (MLL) star Will Manny.
The Boston Cannons attackman will represent STX’s Surgeon line, appearing in marketing and advertising campaigns. Manny will also represent STX at camps, clinics, tournaments and in-store events. He will also compete with STX equipment while playing for the Cannons.
“STX had a large impact on the growth of lacrosse from the youth to professional levels and I am beyond excited about joining and representing this brand,” said Manny. “It is a huge game changer for MLL players, including myself, to now play with STX equipment during pro games and I will strive to exemplify the brand’s success both on and off the field.”
Selected by the Cannons in the second round of the 2013 collegiate draft, Manny is currently second on the team in points and ranks among the top five in the entire MLL for points, goals and assists. Before joining the Cannons, Manny graduated from the University of Massachusetts, ranking fifth in points all-time and is one of only three Minutemen to record over 100 goals and 90 assists.
“We’re excited to welcome Will to the STX family and add one of the most precise attackmen in the game,” said Greg Tate, STX Men’s Marketing Manager. “Since his first season in the league, Will has made an immediate impact for the Cannons and continues to do so this season. His feeding abilities, combined with consistent scoring, make him the perfect fit for STX’s Surgeon line.”
