Baltimore-based lacrosse equipment maker STX announced today a one-year deal with former Syracuse attackman Tim Desko.
As part of the agreement, Desko will appear in marketing materials, help with product testing and development, and act as a team sales liaison. Additionally, Desko will play for Team STX in LXM Pro, a lacrosse tour sponsored by STX, with stars such as Kyle Harrison (Friends, Johns Hopkins) and Sam Bradman (Salisbury).
I am grateful for the opportunity I've been given and look forward to working with the best," Desko said. "It is a great opportunity to be able to continue my lacrosse career playing with some of the best players in the world in the LXM Pro. To be able to play against former Syracuse greats and have guys like Kyle Harrison and Sam Bradman as teammates is very exciting. This is a great way to start out the new year."
Desko finished his senior season at Syracuse as the third-leading scorer and ended his career with 85 total points. The Syracuse, N.Y., native was named to the Big East honor roll his senior year after scoring a game-winning goal for the Orange against St. John's. However, Desko is best known for his numerous appearances on ESPN's "SportCenter" Top 10 highlight reels with behind-the-back goals and scoring between his legs against Princeton and Virginia. Desko was recently drafted third overall in the Major League Lacrosse supplemental draft by the Charlotte Hounds but decided to play with Team STX instead.
