Moon Township, Pa. – Inside Lacrosse recently named Robert Morris University men’s lacrosse alumnus Tyler Digby as one of the top 50 players in the National Lacrosse League (NLL).

IL Indoor Top 50 NLL Players: #26-30

The annual top 50 list was created by Inside Lacrosse Indoor staffers Bob Chavez, Stephen Stamp and Marty O’Neill. The three writers created a point system based on their own player rankings to determine the final list.

The former Colonial was slotted at No. 50 on the list a season ago and climbed 20 spots to claim No. 30 this year.

Digby has 60 goals in two seasons with the Vancouver Stealth and was recently dealt to the Calgary Roughnecks.

Drafted by the Stealth in the third round of the 2013 NLL Entry Draft, Digby put together an impressive rookie campaign as he collected 22 goals and 36 assists in 18 games. He was recognized as the Rookie of the Month for January and finished the season on the NLL All-Rookie Team.

Digby was a two-sport athlete at Robert Morris who competed in lacrosse and football. The New Westminster, British Columbia native caught 20 passes for 234 yards and five touchdowns as a tight end from 2009-13, and tallied 40 goals and 31 assists in 54 games with the lacrosse team. Digby’s 32-point (22g, 10a) senior campaign earned him All-NEC Second Team accolades in 2013.

The former Colonial attackman joined Kiel Matisz in 2013 (Rookie Team) and Jeff Gilbert in 2012 (Second Team) as alumni who have made an NLL All-Pro Team. To date, the Robert Morris men’s lacrosse program has had a total of 21 players drafted to teams in the National Lacrosse League and Major League Lacrosse.

Robert Morris opens the 2016 campaign on February 6 at Penn State.
