Drew Westervelt (born April 25, 1985 in Bel Air, Maryland[1]) is a lacrosse player for the Colorado Mammoth in the National Lacrosse League, and the New York Lizards in Major League Lacrosse.

College career[edit]

Westervelt attended the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, where, as a senior, he was the nation's fifth-leading scorer.[2]

Entrepreneurship[edit]

In April 2014, Westervelt launched a new company HEX Performance based in Baltimore, Maryland. The company produces "HEX" removes that sweaty smell leftover in performance synthetic fabrics. HEX is now being sold at Wegmans, Whole Foods Market, Harris Teeter, Shoprite, and Canadian Tire.[3]

Professional career[edit]

MLL[edit]

Westervelt was selected by the Denver Outlaws fourth overall in the 2007 MLL Collegiate Draft.[2]

In 2011 he was traded to the Chesapeake Bayhawks, then in 2016 to the New York Lizards.[4]

NLL[edit]

He was acquired by the Philadelphia Wings in the third round (37th overall) in the 2007 National Lacrosse League entry draft.[5] During the 2009 NLL season, he was named to the All-Star Game as an injury replacement.[6]

On September 13, 2013, Westervelt was traded to the Colorado Mammoth for Ryan Hotaling and draft picks.[7] He was not included in the published final roster for Colorado, so his status with that team is not known.[8]
