There is not a ton of natives in the league in general considering the roots of the game, 18 seems small. As the league contracted things have gotten more competitive. Also players who are playing NCAA ball seem to be better equipped with when they come into the NLL (not always the case, but guys coming out of college tend to be in great shape/phenomenal athletes). Anecdotally I don't see as many native players breaking through (Thompsons a side) and making an impact in NCAA, unlike there Canadian counterparts where this is occurring more frequently. I'm sure there are lots of factors for this. Bandits: 2 on the practice roster (Abrams & Harris) Swarm: 9 on the active (M Thompson, L Thompson, B Hill, J Thompson, Williams, W Hill, Staats, Brown & Powless) Blackwolves: 3 on the active (Bomberry, Oakes, Jamieson) Knighthawks: 3 on the active, 1 on the practice (Goodleaf, Smith, Jamieson & Powless) Rush: 1 on the active (Thompson) Any I missed?
