" Its been great, I love playing up in Roch and playing with this group. One thing the Ratz and Coach Sudo have always done is put great guys in the locker room. When you only get together once a week to play, I think it’s huge when you’re genuinely excited to see the guys on the team and I think that’s one of the things that makes us so good."

"Like I said I am very excited to be part of such a great organization. I was very lucky to be landed here with the coaching staff they have and also all the great players. Lastly it being close to Buffalo I'm hoping to get some support from fans from the area."

I am very excited at the opportunity that I have to play for the Rattlers and continue my lacrosse career here. This area has offered me so much and helped me grow throughout my time here so its only fitting that I continue here."
Featured Player of the Week: Mike Manley
"I grew up watching the Rattlers and the Knighthawks, so to be able to put on both those jerseys is something very special to me. I remember playing at halftime of the Rattlers game when I was younger. Walking into the locker room at halftime and seeing the big smiles on the kids faces as we pass them is truly something special, because I remember that being me."
