Gerard Arceri Drafted No. 26 Overall By PLL’s Atlas LC

One of Penn State men’s lacrosse’s key specialists has found a home at the next level in the PLL.

Gerard Arceri was drafted No. 26 overall by Atlas LC in the 2021 PLL College Draft Monday night. He is the second Nittany Lion taken on the night, following Mac O’Keefe, who was drafted No. 6 by Chaos.

Arceri has been an elite face-off man for Penn State during his time in Happy Valley. In his first three years in a Penn State uniform, Arceri never had a face-off percentage below 60%. He has regressed in the face-off x in the last two years, but Arceri has still won at least 54% of his face-offs.

Arceri fills a need for Atlas, who was one of a handful of teams looking for a face-off specialist in this year’s draft. He will most likely back up Trevor Baptiste, who has been a top face-off man for Atlas during the last two seasons. Following the conclusion of the 2021 college season, Arceri will be in training camp preparing for the start of the 2021 PLL season, which begins on June 4 at Gillette Stadium in Boston, Massachusetts.
