Greg Gurenlian, better known as "The Beast", played his last professional game this weekend. He announced his retirement at the end of this season back in February, but it came all too quickly for our liking. He has impacted the game beyong belief and has left the game known as one of the best faceoff men in history. The Social Media Roundup recaps how his teammates bid him farewell on Instagram with selfies and thoutful messages.
The Beast himself bids himself a farewell with this update video he posted Sunday morning. He is looking forward to spending more time with his family, more time coaching, and more time training to represent Team USA this fall. His MLL career was phenomenal and we can't wait to see what he can get done in the future.

They may not be teammates on the New York Lizards again, but they'll be side-by-side for Team USA in the fall. Pannell celebrates 5 years playing with Gurenlian as pros and is looking forward to what comes in the future. #NameAMoreIconicDuo
An iconic MLL career, forever changing the way the face-off position is played. An HONOR to play 5 years along side you, even though you didn't always hit the point 🤣. Thank you Greg for all you've done and continue to do for our sport! Now onto Team USA in the Fall 🇺🇸
