Max Seibald is a lacrosse player for the Long Island Lizards of Major League Lacrosse and the Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League. He graduated in 2009 from Cornell University. He is from Hewlett, New York, and attended Hewlett High School. He plays midfield position. As a child he attended Camp Starlight in Starlight, PA where he found his love for lacrosse. He currently lives in Windsor Court with Hewlett High School legend Brian T. Zegans and attends Brother Jimmy's on a nightly basis.

College career[edit]

Seibald was a starter at Cornell University as a freshman earning Ivy League Rookie of the Year honors.[1]

As a sophomore, he was one of the five finalists for the 2007 Tewaaraton Trophy, awarded to the "Most Outstanding" collegiate lacrosse player in the United States.[2] He received the award in 2009. As a senior, he received the Lowe's senior class award.

He led the Big Red's high powered offense to an undefeated regular season, and to the 2007 NCAA Final Four.[3]

Seibald was elected to the Sphinx Head Society, Cornell's oldest senior honor society.

Professional career[edit]

Seibald was selected 2nd overall by the Denver Outlaws in the 2009 Major League Lacrosse draft.

On September 9, 2009, Seibald was selected 8th overall by the Boston Blazers in the National Lacrosse League draft, but was traded to the Philadelphia Wings shortly into the 2010 season.[4]

In the 2010 MLL All-Star Game skills competition, Seibald posted a world record-tying shot of 110 miles per hour. He now shares the record with Team USA teammate Paul Rabil, who defended his 2009 fastest shot title by posting a second shot of 111 to Seibald's 109 miles per hour second shot [1].

In 2012, Seibald set a career high in Loose Balls (77), while helping the Wings make the playoffs for the first time in 5 years.[5] Before the 2013 season, Seibald injured his foot in training camp, and missed the entire 2013 NLL campaign, but is expected to return for 2014.[6]

National Team career[edit]

Seibald played on the US Men's National Lacrosse Team at the 2010 World Lacrosse Championships in Manchester, England. The US team defeated Canada 12-10 in the final to reclaim the World Championship. His Jersey number was 42, the same number he wore at Cornell.
