Q&A with 2015 Wharton graduate and Major League Lacrosse champ Matt McMahon

(08/22/17 4:33pm)

McMahon, in only his second full MLL season, has developed into one of the best lacrosse players in the world. The rangy six-foot-four cover man who led the 2014 Quakers to an Ivy League Tournament title has since become a takeaway artist and the backbone of the Machine Defense, and as such, he was named to the All-MLL Team.

For those interested in the Quakers solely for the highlight reel goals and doorstep saves, a player like Kreinz might not even be on their radar. He clears, he plays defensively, he scoops up ground balls, and he provides the occasional transition tally, but he’s by no means a goal scorer.
