NEW YORK, NY – October 18, 2013 – Maverik Lacrosse announced today that JoJo Marasco, former NCAA All-America selection and 2013 Big East Midfielder of the Year at Syracuse University, is the newest addition to its roster of elite lacrosse athletes. Marasco, who was selected by the New York Lizards in the 2013 Major League Lacrosse Draft and is currently on the US Men’s National Team training roster, will represent Maverik at clinics and tournaments across the country.
“Surpassing the legendary Paul Gait’s single season assist record as a midfielder is a reflection not only on JoJo’s vision and work ethic, but also his dedication to his teammates,” said Mike Chepucavage, Marketing Director for Cascade and Maverik Lacrosse. “His selfless approach to the game is a prime example of how we should promote and teach the sport to youth players.”
A native of Somers, New York, JoJo Marasco has been on a fast track to lacrosse success since his playing days at Somers High School, where he earned All-America honors twice. Marasco remains the all-time leading scorer in Somers High School history with 212 goals and 104 assists.
As a senior at Syracuse University, Marasco led the team in points with 66 total, tallying 24 goals and 42 assists. His 42 assists rank first all-time at Syracuse in single season assists from a midfielder. JoJo finished out his senior season earning First Team All-America honors and being named a 2013 Tewaaraton finalist for the most outstanding player of the year.
Most recently, Marasco was named to U.S. Men’s National Team training roster in preparation to the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships in Denver, Colorado.
“I’m thrilled to be joining such an innovative and dedicated team,” said Marasco. “I’ve always admired Maverik’s approach to product development and grassroots marketing. I’m looking forward to playing my part in developing cutting edge equipment and raising awareness about the game. To be part of this movement is an honor and a privilege.”
