Baltimore, MD – Baltimore-based STX, LLC, a global sporting goods leader, today announced the signing of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) player Ryan Young for the 2014 season.

As part of his role with STX, Young will serve as an official STX-sponsored athlete and will appear in the company’s marketing and product campaigns. Young will also represent STX during in-store appearances and autograph signings. The Charlotte Hounds attackman will use the STX Surgeon line during MLL games this year.

“I am humbled and honored to join the STX family,” stated Young. “Ever since playing with STX gear in youth lacrosse, STX has always been my brand of choice. I’m looking forward to competing with STX products again in the MLL this season.”

Young had a breakout year in 2013, tallying 30 goals and 10 assists for the Charlotte Hounds. The attackman was named to the 2013 MLL All-Star game after leading the Hounds to their first-ever playoff appearance. A former University of Maryland lacrosse athlete, Young was named USILA Third team All-American and ACC All-Tournament Team in 2011.

“Young has been a leader for the relatively new Charlotte Hounds. Last season he proved himself as an essential team player, putting up more points than he had previously in his MLL career,” said Greg Tate, STX Men’s Marketing Manager. “We’re proud to have Young join the STX family and represent the Surgeon line.”

Additionally, STX recently announced signing Florida Launch’s Tucker Durkin following news that STX is an official Equipment Partner in the MLL.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
