World Lacrosse Championship Player Profile: Jeremy Thompson
The Syracuse alum has had an excellent MLL career. Jeremy, the eldest of the Thompson brothers, is in his third season with the Edmonton Rush and was acquired by the Hamilton Nationals in the first round, going sixth overall in 2011. He was also picked in the second round (10th overall) in the 2011 National Lacrosse League Entry Draft. The 27-year-old is currently a finalist for the 2014 NLL Transition Player of the Year award. He scored nine goals and 17 points last season, and finished fourth in the league in both face-offs won (235) and face-off percentage (.540). With a nickname like “Gun” the midfielder could easily be the Iroquois Nationals best weapon.
Thompson,Onondaga, looks at lacrosse as more than just a game.
"It's our way of life. It's deep in our culture. In our cradle board, we are given a wooden lacrosse stick,” Thompson told The Denver Post. “We grew up playing since we've been walking.”
