9 Trevor Baptiste
2023 U.S. Men's Senior Team Roster|
Trevor Baptiste has dominated the faceoff like few in the sport have ever done. He's won an NCAA championship, a world championship, starred in pro outdoor and indoor lacrosse and is fast becoming one of the brightest stars in the sport.
Baptiste helped lead Denver to the 2015 NCAA championship and became just the sixth player in Division I men's lacrosse history to be named a first-team All-American four times. He graduated with NCAA records for career faceoff wins (1,158) and winning percentage (71.4).
He's carried over that success to the next level. At the 2018 world championship, he won a tournament best 75.3 percent (67 of 89) to help the U.S. win the gold medal. He was a finalist for the MLL Rookie of the Year in 2018, led the PLL in faceoffs in 2019 (62.8 percent) and made the NLL All-Rookie team in 2019.
