Paul Rabil is one of just two players that has represented Team USA three times at the FIL World Lacrosse Championship. Let’s take a look back at his remarkable career to date…

DEMATHA STAGS

As a young teenager, Rabil was gifted a lacrosse stick by a neighbor down the street, and the rest — as they say — is history. In lacrosse-happy Maryland, he began racking up awards and titles in high school after transferring from Watkins Mill to DeMatha Catholic to start his sophomore year.
