PLL Announces Rosters for Six Inaugural Teams with Creative Release


On Monday, the lacrosse world heard from the players. 

In a creative release of the inaugural rosters for the Premier Lacrosse League, the players shared personalized Bitmojis on social media announcing their allegiance to one of six teams – the Archers, Atlas, Chaos, Chrome, Redwoods or Whipsnakes. One by one, the rosters were unveiled for each team.

League founder Paul Rabil landed with the Atlas Lacrosse Club, alongside fellow U.S. gold medalists Trevor Baptiste, Ryan Brown, Kevin Unterstein, Steven DeNapoli, Tucker Durkin and Kyle Hartzell. Team USA's FIL World Championship MVP, Mike Ehrhardt, joined the Whipsnakes. 

The announcement comes the week after the PLL unveiled the team names, logos and full coaching staffs
