TORONTO — The National Lacrosse League’s newest fans will get to see the sport’s most celebrated brother act since the Gaits, as the Georgia Swarm selected Lyle Thompson first overall in the 2015 NLL draft Monday night in Toronto.
Thompson, the two-time Tewaaraton Award winner out of Albany, will join his brother, Miles, on the Swarm, who relocated from Minnesota to Georgia in the offseason. He’s only the second player history to go No. 1 in both the MLL and NLL drafts (Kevin Crowley, 2011).
