This Friday (as in tomorrow!), New England Patriots wide receiver and TBL Athlete Chris Hogan signs a contract with the New England Blackwolves of the National Lacrosse League. How cool is that?! And so what if it’s just an Honorary Contract Signing? Nobody expected Chris Hogan to play professional lacrosse at this time in his career!
Between the New Blackwolves and the Georgia Swarm rosters, there will actually be 17 Thompson Brothers Lacrosse athletes competing on the floor Friday night. The milestone fittingly coincides with a very special evening at the Mohegan Sun celebrating Native American Heritage.
Chris will surely be in attendance to cheer on his TBL boys on both squads and take in the joyous occasion, so keep your eyes peeled for the big tall wide receiver in a Blackwolves jersey!
