The UAlbany Great Danes lacrosse season does not start for another six months but already the 2018 team is garnering national recognition. The newest addition to the team, freshman Tehoka Nanticoke, has been named the number one recruit in the country by Inside Lacrosse .com The publication went one step further and featured Nanticoke as the cover athlete on most recent addition of the magazine. From Six Nations, Ontario, Nanticoke played at IMG Academy in Florida before coming to UAlbany. He was named an Under Armour All-American and played in the UA All-America game in Towson last summer. One ESPN lacrosee broadcaster took note of the national publicity involving Nanticoke.
