Tim Desko signs with STX

Former Syracuse University attackman Tim Desko has signed a one-year deal with lacrosse manufacturer STX.

Well known amongst young lacrosse enthusiasts as one of the most exciting college players to watch in 2012, Dekso finished his collegiate carrer with 85 total point. His knack for scoring goals behind-the-back and between-the-legs goals led to many appearances on ESPN’s SportsCenter Top 10 during his storied career as the coach’s son at Syracuse.

Desko will fill the roles of endorsed athlete, product tester and sales liaison for STX Lacrosse equipment. Desko will also compete for Team STX in the LXM PRO circuit, alongside other sponsored STX athletes Kyle Harrison, Sam Bradman, Matt Russell and Max Ritz.

Xander Ritz, current player and LXM PRO CEO was quoted saying “We couldn’t be more excited to have Tim join the LXM Tour and Team STX in 2013. Both his style of play on the field and his energy for growing the game and working with kids make him a perfect fit for everything we’re about.”

According to STX marketing manager Greg Tate, Desko’s sales role will focus on growing the STX brand within the Southeastern United States. Meanwhile, Tim’s marketability as a lacrosse all star is sure to help drive equipment sales worldwide.

Tim Desko’s style of play is an important aspect of lacrosse that makes it so compelling to young athletes in non-traditional areas. It’s a sport in which one player’s creativity can outmatch an opposing team’s strategy 98% percent of the time, and, as we’ve all come to recognize, kids are catching on.

I can’t wait to see how STX markets Tim Desko’s BTB sharp-shooting skills to sell lacrosse equipment in 2013.

Founder of Lacrosse All Stars. A West Coast native and product of the MCLA, I moved back East after college where I truly fell in love with the game. I've dedicated my career to LaxAllStars since 2010, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait. Life is crazy busy, but it's worth it when you get to immerse yourself in the medicine of lacrosse every day. We are on a mission to Grow The Game® on a global scale by empowering storytelling by players, for players, and bridging the gap between lacrosse and the mainstream.
