The 76th annual all-star game will be played at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, May 26, at Chapey Field at Anderson Stadium on the campus of Providence College in Rhode Island. Lalli is one of just 70 players from across the nation to earn an all-star nod, and will play for the South all-stars under the direction of Florida Southern head coach Marty Ward. Lalli is the second Moccasin to appear in a USILA/Nike North-South game, joining DJ Lubs, who played in the 2014 contest. This season, Lalli ranked 12th among all Division II goalkeepers in saves per game (12.60) while ranking 22nd in save percentage (.545). He earned three Sunshine State Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors during the year, and was named as the USILA Division II National Defensive Player of the Week on March 9. During his four years at Florida Southern, Lalli set the program record for wins (32), saves (686), games played (62), and finished second in career save-percentage (.526). He also holds the top three spots in the single-season saves category, including a school-record 216 as a junior. His 22 saves in a upset of No. 17 Lake Erie on Feb. 28 rank second in school history for saves in a single game.
