ATLANTA – The Georgia Swarm today announced that it has re-signed transition player Bryan Cole to a three-year deal.
“Bryan has been one of our top defenders over the last two years and was instrumental as a rookie in helping us win the NLL championship,” Swarm Owner and General Manager John Arlotta said in a press release. “He is great on the floor and equally good in the community, where he teaches lacrosse during the season. We are excited to announce that he has signed a three-year contract to help the Swarm continue to pursue championships while at the same time growing the game of lacrosse in Atlanta.”
Cole, 24, was selected No. 4 overall in the 2016 NLL Entry Draft. A graduate of the University of Maryland, the left-hander has quickly become a core component of the Swarm defense, particularly the penalty kill unit.
The Oakville, Ontario native set new career-highs in his sophomore season in assists, points, shorthand goals, loose balls, and shooting percentage. In 18 games in 2017-18, Cole finished with 14 points (6G, 8A), two shorthand goals, 95 loose balls, 15 caused turnovers, and a .250 SPCT.
Listed at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, Cole was part of the strong Swarm 2017 rookie class that helped the franchise win its first-ever NLL Cup.
