Jacksonville, Fla. – The Jacksonville men’s lacrosse program has announced the addition of three mid-year transfers, prior to the 2022 season. 

Cam Johnson (UMass), Marshall McGuire (Syracuse), and Luke Talago (Syracuse) join the Dolphins this spring and will be immediately eligible to compete. 

“I am a huge Buffalo Bills fan, and one of the quotes Sean McDermott always relies on when talking about the evaluation of the team is his ability to upgrade at every position,” head coach John Galloway said. “Our mid-year transfers did just that, elevating us in each position and increasing our depth and competition as we head into the spring. Each young man comes from an established program, which will also help us in our locker room as we continue to strive to be championship caliber in all facets.”

Cam Johnson
Position: Midfield 
Class: Sophomore 
Hometown/High School: McKinney, Texas | McKinney 
Height/Weight: 6’1″ | 200 lbs. 
Previous School: UMass
Galloway’s Takeaway: “Cam joins us from UMass. I had the fortune of coaching Cam on the U-17 USA Developmental Team (2019), and knew he was going to be a special player. Cam is a violent athlete in between the lines and will help elevate our pace of play at the midfield.” 

Marshall McGuire 
Position: Midfield 
Class: Freshman 
Hometown/High School: Lake Oswego, Ore. | Lake Oswego 
Height/Weight: 6’3″ | 210 lbs.  
Previous School: Syracuse 
Galloway’s Takeaway: “Marshall joins us from Syracuse University. The Oregon native brings size and high-level IQ to our midfield immediately. Marshall also has that magnetic personality that has made him a crowd favorite in our locker room immediately. He has been a blessing and will push to compete right away.” 

Luke Talago
Position: Face-Off
Class: Sophomore 
Hometown/High School: Centervalley, Pa. | Allentown Central Catholic 
Height/Weight: 5’9″ | 190 lbs. 
Previous School: Syracuse 
Galloway’s Takeaway: “Luke also joins us from Syracuse University. Luke was a top-20 face-off recruit out of high school. He has provided depth and competition into our face-off room that we haven’t had in years. His work ethic has been on full display.” 

The Dolphins kick-off the 2022 season in just over three weeks on Feb. 5, as Jacksonville travels to Baltimore for a showdown with Johns Hopkins.
