Arcadia University assistant men’s lacrosse coach Corey Elmer was one of 14 players selected by the Denver Outlaws in the 2015 Major League Lacrosse Supplemental Draft on Dec. 17. He was the 72nd selection in the draft, coming off the board in the ninth round. Elmer recently completed an outstanding collegiate career at Cabrini College in 2014, where he was coached by first-year Arcadia head coach Nick Taylor, as a part of a top-10 nationally ranked program.
“I am very excited to have an opportunity to not only continue playing lacrosse, but to have a chance to play it at the highest level,” Elmer stated after learning he was drafted by the 2014 MLL Champion Outlaws. “It’s a dream to be able to play professionally, and I look forward to arriving in training camp to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity.”
Elmer was twice named a First-Team All-American (2013, 2014) and the 2014 Division III Iroquois Nationals Award winner as the division’s most outstanding player by the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA). He is the only two-time First-Team USILA All-American in Cavaliers’ program history. Elmer was additionally named the 2013 and 2014 Colonial States Athletic Conference Player of the Year, and earned all-conference honors in each of his four seasons at Cabrini after transferring from NCAA Division I Robert Morris.
Elmer was also recognized for his work in the classroom as an exercise science and health promotion major, being named to the 2014 USILA Scholar All-America Team and earning a spot on the Philadelphia Inquirer/Philly-SIDA Academic All-Area Team in 2013 and 2014. He was also a three-time CSAC All-Academic selection.
“We are excited for Corey to take this next step in his lacrosse career,” said Taylor. “He exemplified what it takes to be a top tier Division III student-athlete. We look forward to having him help develop our guys and continuing to lead our recruiting efforts.”
Elmer, who is entering his first season as a member of the Arcadia coaching staff, will report to Denver for training camp the weekend of March 28.
