Dryden Brous of the Lynn University men’s lacrosse team has recently been tabbed a Second Team Preseason All-American, released by Inside Lacrosse and published in the Face-Off Yearbook. The preseason accolade is the first for any player in program history.
Austin Jerhoff, a 2017 alum of Lynn University and a four-year member on the Fighting Knights men’s lacrosse team, has recently signed a professional box lacrosse contract with the Vancouver Stealth of the National Lacrosse League (NLL). Jerhoff is the first-ever player from the Lynn lacrosse program to sign a professional contract.
The lacrosse world converges in Israel this summer for the 2018 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Lacrosse Championships, and this year, former Fighting Knights are getting in on the action. Angelo Beacon-Paglia (‘17) and Tyler Martin (‘16) are suiting up next week to represent their countries on the world stage, including a pool-play tilt featuring a head-to-head battle.
We are pleased to share the student-athletes’ success in the classroom as the Fighting Knights earned a 3.27 department GPA for the semester. An impressive 38 students posted a perfect 4.0 GPA in the spring. The Fighting Knights shined in the classroom during the 2017-18 academic year with a department GPA of 3.32, while 210 student-athletes earned a 3.0 GPA or better.
