The Albany FireWolves of the National Lacrosse League (NLL), today announce that the team has agreed to a two-year deal with forward Marshall Powless. The current FireWolves can be found here.
Powless joined the FireWolves just past the halfway mark in the schedule last season and quickly became one of the team’s top offensive players. In seven games with Albany, the lefty compiled 27 total points on seven goals and 20 assists. The forward logged multiple points in every game since being traded to the FireWolves, including a six-point outing against the Rochester Knighthawks. He was one of the top prospects in the 2020 Entry Draft and will be a good piece in the FireWolves’ core as they look to rebuild ahead of the 2023-24 season.
“I can’t wait to be in Albany for two more years!” said Powless. “Playing with the FireWolves has given me so much confidence and the coaches put a lot of trust in me, which pushes me to be the best player I can be.”
“Marshall is a talented and passionate player,” said Glenn Clark, Head Coach of the FireWolves. “Getting him signed for two more years allows our offensive group to continue to grow and improve together.”
