We’ve seen a lot of surprises happen this season in college lacrosse, from the emergence of new faces and new teams, to players such as Bryant’s Gunnar Waldt fall almost out of existence.  Here are my All-American selections at this point in the season, which have 4 attackmen, 4 middies, a FOGO, an LSM, 4 defensemen, and a goalie:

First Team

A Lyle Thompson Senior Albany
A Dylan Molloy Sophomore Brown
A Dylan Donahue Redshirt Junior Syracuse
A Jimmy Bitter Senior North Carolina
M Myles Jones Junior Duke
M Connor Buczek Senior Cornell
M Greg Coholan Junior Virginia
M Jesse King Senior Ohio State
FOGO Trevor Baptiste Freshman Denver
LSM Larken Kemp Sophomore Brown
D Matt Landis Junior Notre Dame
D Casey Ikeda Senior Maryland
D Brandon Mullins Redshirt Junior Syracuse
D Chris Fennell Sophomore Navy
G Kyle Bernlohr Redshirt Junior Maryland

Second Team

A Matt Kavanagh Junior Notre Dame
A Kevin Rice Senior Syracuse
A Mike MacDonald Senior Princeton
A Joey Sankey Senior North Carolina
M Deemer Class Junior Duke
M Ryan Tucker Senior Virginia
M Kip Orban Senior Princeton
M Ryan Belka Senior Drexel
FOGO Ben Williams Sophomore Syracuse
LSM Peter MacCartney Senior Syracuse
D JoJo Ostrander Senior Towson
D Christian Burgdorf Sophomore Denver
D Austin Pifani Sophomore North Carolina
D Austin Schultz Junior Army
G Shane Doss Sophomore Notre Dame

Granted, there’s still plenty of season left to play.  And I think none of these spots are locked in, even Lyle Thompson’s.  This is the point of the season where All-Americans are seen and whether or not they can help change the outcome of a game.
