The Head Coaches of Section Five recently considered players who had been nominated for All-American and All-Academic awards. The awards, sponsored by US Lacrosse, identify some of the best players from each area around the country. Each of the Head Coaches in the section is allowed to vote on each of the awards.
For the All-Academic award, an emphasis has been placed on the academic qualification of the nominees, but players were required to make first or second team if they were in a league. Where, in the past, nominees for this award were first considered for their skill on this field, this year, although skill was considered important, nominees did not need to be “All-American” quality players. Academically, nominees needed to have an average GPA of 3.7 (93%). There were six awards available in Section Five…one was earned by senior Ryan McEvily. Congratulations!
