I’m a fan of the Harry Potter books and film series, so I smiled when I saw Melissa Dafni’s article on ProSportsColorado.com saying that “Scott Evans is the Draco Malfoy of lacrosse”. While I’m not sure the comparison is quite accurate (they both talk a good game and act tough but when it comes down to it, Malfoy is a coward while I wouldn’t say that about Evans) (especially if he’s nearby), it started me thinking, and then of course I had to run with it. So here you go, the NLL cast of the Harry Potter universe.
Harry Potter – Kevin Crowley. He is the Chosen One and everyone believes we can expect great things from him. Thus far, he has not disappointed.
Ron Weasley – Connor Martin. Not as talented as those he hangs out with, but kinda funny.
Hagrid – Has to be the 6’10” David Morgan.
Professor Dumbledore – John Tavares. The oldest and wisest guy around, but still one of the best with a stick in his hand.
Sirius Black – Geoff Snider. Everyone thinks he’s a psycho, but really he’s just a big loyal puppy dog.
Cedric Diggory – Shawn Williams. One of the most talented guys around, and very likeable too. Is also a vampire. No, wait…
Seamus Finnigan – Tim O’Brien. Just put him in and watch as things explode.
Mad-Eye Moody – Troy Cordingley. Really good at what he does and very well respected, but seems grumpy all the time.
Professor Snape – The NLL referees. Not well liked, but in the end, it takes guts to do what they do. Many think they’re secretly working for the other side.
Lord Voldemort – Yeah, I’m not going there.
