PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Former Providence College lacrosse player Peter Littell (Upper Montclair, N.J.) is a step closer to playing professionally with the Long Island Lizards, who are one of 10 Major League Lacrosse teams. Littell was added to the Lizard's 35-man roster, earning the opportunity to compete for a permanent roster spot at training camp in April. Littell becomes just the second Providence men's lacrosse player in program history to compete with a professional team in the MLL. Brian O'Rorke (`04) was picked up by the New Jersey Pride in the league's supplemental draft in 2004.
Littell, a goalkeeper, enjoyed a stellar career between the pipes from 2004-2007 at Providence. In 46 career games, he posted a 7.57 goals against average and a 0.599 save percentage. During his tenure, the Friars won three MAAC Tournament Championships, two MAAC Regular-Season titles and made three NCAA Tournament appearances.
Littell earned All-MAAC honors twice during his career. As a junior in 2006, he was a member of the Second-Team. In 2007, he was recognized as a First-Team selection. He also was named to the MAAC All-Tournament Team in 2006 and 2007.
