As we excitedly await for the start of the second half of the PLL season, Riptide 2020 first overall pick Jeff Teat, got off to a fantastic start to the outdoor season.

This start awarded him a spot in the PLL’s All-Star Game on July 18. There, he recorded one point with a goal for the CrowdStrike Adversaries against the Crownstrike Defenders. That goal contributed to a 23-21 win at PayPal Park in San Jose, CA. Teat also participated in the All-Stars Skills Competition in the accuracy shooting contest.

The Ontario native has played in only three games, but Teat has a total of 14 points, nine goals, and five assists for Atlas LC.
