#24 T Jordan MacIntosh
When faced with the difficult task of characterizing players in the NLL, a line is often drawn between offensive and defensive players. A player is either relied upon to put the ball in the net or to keep the ball out of his own net. Swarm transition player Jordan MacIntosh is a perfect example of someone who falls outside of this dichotomy between offense and defense. In only his third year in the NLL, MacIntosh has established himself as one of the premiere two-way players in the league, equally capable of playing lights-out defense as he is shooting the lights out in the other end of the floor.
The Oakville, Ontario native has been the epitome of consistency during the illustrious start of his career, averaging 53 points and 177 loose balls over his first two seasons, an output that led to him winning the 2013 NLL Transition Player of the Year award. MacIntosh has not slowed down in 2014, as he has already eclipsed the 50-point and 150-loose ball plateaus and is looking for more down the stretch.
MNSwarm.com had the opportunity to chat with the versatile player, and learned the secret behind his consistency, his take on the season at hand and his excitement to open a three-game homestand at The Hive.
