By now you probably know that Devon Wills has become the first female player on a Major League Lacrosse roster. While she wasn’t picked up in the Supplemental Draft as some may have hoped, the NY Lizards claimed the two-time FIL Women’s World Cup gold medalist out of the Player Pool. While she still has to prove herself to make it from the training camp roster to the game roster, she has the support of many in the lacrosse community, including Connor Martin.

This tweet was of course pre-Supplemental Draft, and Martin was sharing his hope for Wills to be picked. She didn’t get her chance that day, but she has it now. Her MLL journey will surely be watched closely by lacrosse fans!
