NLL Entry Draft: Hello, My Name Is … Myan Adams

Myan Adams
Myan Adams

The lacrosse experience for Myan Adams runs far and wide, from box to field and east to west. Five seasons of Junior A lacrosse with Akwesasne was followed by a run with the Coquitlam Adanacs, where he got a chance to play for Minto Cup glory in 2011. Just a few months ago, he graduated from Cornell University where he was part of a Big Red team that won 3 Ivy League titles. And last summer, he was part of a Senior B team in St. Regis that won the Presidents Cup. He played his summer with Caughnawaga and another Presidents Cup tournament. And when he’s not on the floor playing the game, he’s working at Traditional Lacrosse in Akwesasne. The roots of lacrosse run deep for Adams and he’s hoping now to extend those roots to another level, the National Lacrosse League. He’ll find out if he gets that chance on Sept. 16 at the NLL entry draft.
