DENVER, CO, September 23, 2013 - Denver City Lax announced today that Eric Law has been hired as a Program Manager for the 2013-14 season.

“We’re thrilled to add Eric to our staff,” said Executive Director, Rod Allison. “He is highly thought of both locally and nationally, and has a wealth of lacrosse knowledge to go along with a great work ethic. We think Eric can make an immediate impact, and assist Denver City Lax in our next phase of growth.”
Law grew up in Littleton, CO and attended Arapahoe High School where he led his team to their first state championship in 2009. He graduated in 2013 from the University of Denver where he served as a captain under Bill Tierney, and helped lead the Pioneers to the NCAA Final Four.
