WARREN, Mich. -- Brine announced today that the sporting goods company has signed the 2009 NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player, Kenny Nims, to their research and development team. Nims comes to Brine from Syracuse University were he totaled over 175 points in his four year career at the school, and was a 2009 first team all American. He was also the number one draft pick in the 2009 MLL draft by the Chicago Machine.

"I'm very excited to be part of a company with such a great heritage," said Nims. "I'm looking forward to giving back to the game that has given me so much, and I couldn't imagine a better way to do that than to be a part of the Brine team," he continued.

Nims helped lead Syracuse to back to back NCAA Championships in 2008 and 2009. Originally from Watertown, NY, Nims was a four-year varsity lacrosse letter winner and an All American at Watertown High School.

"Kenny not only has great insight into the game, but he also has a thorough understanding of how products function," said Neal Goldman, Brine Product Manager. "Brine is thrilled to have him join the team, and we think he'll be a great asset to our R&D team," said Goldman.
