Brine, Inc. has inked defensemen Chris Passavia to a multi-year contract. Passavia will join Brine’s team of lacrosse super stars known collectively as Team Brine. As a member of Team Brine, Passavia will be working closely with the research and development (R&D) team to help Brine continue developing the best lacrosse equipment on the field.

“Chris personifies our challenge to all players to “Find Your Game”. In a sport that has increasingly become more coached, controlled and conservative, especially on the defensive side of the field,” said Mike Martin, Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “Chris’ game is like no other in the sport, which makes him the most unpredictable defensemen out there and, in my opinion, the most entertaining to watch and the most dangerous to play against.”

Passavia currently resides in New York City and will be suiting up for the Boston Cannons this summer for his second season in the MLL. A University of Maryland graduate and 3x All American Passavia dominates the defensive game of lacrosse with a style that combines great athleticism and aggression. Known for his cunning and clever “take away” checks Passavia is a powerful on-field threat.

“Brine has brought together an extremely talented group of players that truly excel in the sport and I am proud to be a associated with that level of play,” said Chris Passavia. “I bring a different approach to the defensive game and Brine embraces that. I want to show that you can play the position with finesse, intensity and aggression without losing sight of solid team play.”
