Malphrus to Defend the Country

March 18, 2016
ANNAPOLIS, MD –Bayhawks defenseman Bray Malphrus signed up to protect his country and flew to boot camp in Georgia after the Bayhawks defeated the Hamilton Nationals 20-7 on Friday, May 18 th.

After being acquired before the 2011 season on the waiver wire, Malphrus has made his presence known both on the field and in the locker room for Chesapeake. He played all 4 games so far this season, helping the Bayhawks to a 3-1 record. 

Head coach Dave Cottle describes Bray as “strong leader and great person,” and adds, “We’re going to miss him.”

The University of Virginia stand-out recorded 135 ground balls in 71 games, and won a National Championship with the Cavilers. Since joining the Bayahwks, Malphrus has played in six games and tallied 12 ground balls and three penalty minutes.

While his play on the field is impressive, it’s his character as a person that sets him apart. Off the field, Malphrus worked in soup kitchens all over the east coast for a summer. The words “competitive” and “loyal” are constantly used to describe Malphrus.

The Bayhawks return home on Saturday, June 9 th to battle the Charlotte Hounds. Tickets can be purchased online at www.thebayhawks.comor over the phone by calling the box office 866-99-HAWKS (42957).
