Max Seibald is a professional lacrosse player for the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse. 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.
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. He received the award in 2009. As a senior, he received the Lowe's senior class award.
Seibald was elected to the Sphinx Head Society, Cornell's oldest senior honor society.
In the 2010 MLL All-Star Game skills competition, Seibald posted a world record-tying shot of 110 miles per hour. He shared 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 . The current fastest shot belongs to Zak Dorn with a shot of 116 miles per hour. Zak Dorn is a fan who took part in the 2014 Fastest Shot Competition.
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. 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.
National Team career
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. He also was on the 23 man roster for the 2014 US Men's National Lacrosse Team at the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships in Denver, Colorado. Seibald was not named to the 59-man tryout list for USA's 2018 World Team, however, weeks later was announced as a member of Israel's 150-man player pool. Seibald is Jewish and is thus eligible for Israeli citizenship under Israel's Law of Return.
