BOSTON – The public has spoken and has chosen University of Albany senior attack Lyle Thompson (Onondaga Nation) as the America East Men’s Lacrosse Fans’ Choice Player of the Year for the 2015 season.
This comes one year after brother Miles Thompson was the Fans’ Choice Player of the Year last season, giving UAlbany the award the past two seasons.
All seven America East teams nominated one representative for an online vote through the conference that lasted the past five days. Thompson received over 41% of the vote, receiving nearly double the amount of votes as the second-place finisher.
Thompson leads all of Division I in points and assists per game, standing with 38 goals and 54 points to total 92 points. The 2014 Tewarraton Trophy co-winner was nominated for the same award for 2015. He and the Great Danes host Hartford on Thursday, April 30th at 7 p.m. for the semifinals of the America East Tournament.
