The Roughnecks held a winning record of 13-4 last season and advanced to the 2023 NLL Western Conference finals.
Posey, a top defenseman and compelling asset to Penn State’s roster, will return to Panzer Stadium for his fifth season. After a successful 2023 season with a career-high 11 caused turnovers and 25 ground balls, Posey received accolades including All-Big Ten second-team designations and a USA Lacrosse Magazine All-American honorable mention nod. Throughout his 36 games at Penn State, Posey has scored four goals, totaled 47 ground balls, and forced 21 turnovers.
After a season-ending injury, Jordan will return to Penn State’s roster for the 2024 season, too. As an attackman, Jordan scored a total of 12 goals with several multi-goal outings, including one four-goal showing in 2023. He has also registered seven assists and nine ground balls.
