Former Maryland men’s lacrosse star Matt Rambo was named one of the captains for the first-ever Premier Lacrosse League All-Star Game this past weekend, and he made selections for his team Monday at 11 a.m. ET.
Rambo was named a captain after an impressive season so far with the Whipsnakes, who sit in first place with a 5-1 record. He leads all players in the league with 27 points and 15 assists.
On Sunday, both Rambo and Atlas star Trevor Baptiste, the other captain, made their first two selections. Rambo selected fellow Terp Michael Ehrhardt as his first pick, along with Connor Fields from Chaos.

Then in the selection show on Monday, Rambo selected five other Terps from the Whipsnakes to join his All-Star roster — midfielder Jake Bernhardt, midfielder Drew Snider, defender Matt Dunn, defender Bryce Young and goalie Kyle Bernlohr. He also selected former Maryland star Joe Walters, who plays for the Whipsnakes. Midfielder Mike Chanenchuk was taken by Baptiste to Rambo’s dismay.
The All-Star Game will be played in Los Angeles at Bank of California Stadium on July 21.
