The 98-player tryout roster for the U.S. men's national team that will compete in the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship was announced during halftime of the Major League Lacrosse game between the Chesapeake Bayhawks and Denver Outlaws on Saturday afternoon.

The tryout session will be held Labor Day weekend at Goucher. Furman coach Richie Meade, former head coach at Navy, will oversee tryouts; US Lacrosse then will announce the 40-player U.S. men’s national team.

The championships will be held next July at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.

Notable returning players include Paul Rabil (Johns Hopkins), the MVP of the gold medal-winning team at the 2010 World Championships in Manchester, England, as well as three-time U.S. team members Ryan Boyle (Gilman) and Matt Striebel. Ned Crotty, who scored the tying and winning goals in Team USA's 12-10 win over Canada in the championship game in 2010, also returns.
