Tom O’Connor #44
Height: 6’1″ Weight: 170 Age: 28
Goals: 14 Assists: 6 Blocks: 10
MLU Experience: 2
Following a 3-7 season in 2013, the Philadelphia Spinners spent the next few years building a roster that eventually brought them to a victory in the 2016 MLU Championship game. A significant addition to the team in 2015, O’Connor has been a workhorse for the Spinners defense over the past two seasons.
A product of East Stroudsburg University, O’Connor has the ability to force turnovers on defense and immediately shift to an offensive mindset. In 2016, O’Connor excelled after the turn, scoring 10 goals and throwing six assists, both career highs. Tall and physical with a high motor, O’Connor has consistantly given opposing offenses fits and presents a reliable target for teammates once they regain possession of the disc.
