Lyle Thompson Named USILA Most Outstanding Player
For the second straight season, UAlbany senior attackmen Lyle Thompson has been named the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Most Outstanding Player.
Thompson helped the Danes advance to the NCAA quarterfinals for the second consecutive season. UAlbany fell to Notre Dame last weekend by a score of 14-10.
Thompson's 121 points this season was the second-highest scoring season in collegiate history. He had 52 goals and 69 assists and registered multiple-points in each of UAlbany's 19 games.
He led all of Division 1 with 6.39 points per game.
Thompson is also up for the Tewaaraton Award, the lacrosse equivalent of the Heisman Trophy. After splitting the award last year with his brother Miles, Thompson would become the first player ever to win the award in two consecutive seasons.
