Beyond the Games: Merrick Thomson
NISKAYUNA, NY (WRGB)--From 2004 through 2007, no one dominated the lacrosse field at UAlbany quite like Merrick Thomson.
The former Albany Academy star helped lead the Great Danes to three America East titles, as well as the first NCAA Tournament win in the program's Division I history.
Thomson graduated as the school's all-time leading scorer with 244 points and 188 goals which currently stand as third, and second in UAlbany history.
After winning a championship in Major League Lacrosse, Thomson decided to become a coach.
He spent six years in his home country of Canada at one of the top prep school's for lacrosse in North America before returning to his alma mater.
