Chrome LC captain John Ranagan announces retirement
By Nick Zoroya | Apr 24, 2023
Chrome LC midfielder and captain, John Ranagan, has announced his retirement from the Premier Lacrosse League. The ten-year veteran ends his career with 99 games played and 160 points.
Before his professional career, Ranagan was a two time All-American at Yorktown High School, and also a two-time All-American at Johns Hopkins University. While in college he proved himself as a do it all midfielder, scoring goals, snatching ground balls, and occasionally taking face-offs.
Ranagan made his professional debut in 2013 as a member of Major League Lacrosse’s Rochester Rattlers and spent the entirety of his MLL career with that organization. He was on the MLL All-Star team during his rookie season.
In 2019 he joined the PLL as a member of the Chrome LC and his impact in the locker room was immediately felt. Chrome LC Head Coach Tim Soudan was quick to praise Ranagan for his high IQ, physicality, and for being the right type of guy to lead a locker room.
Ranagan released the following statement:
