Maybe those who choose the Tewaaraton Award winner, given annually to college lacrosse’s most outstanding player, will seriously look at other candidates besides attackmen and midfielders this year.
Maybe they will finally take a hard look at a player like Bryant University senior goalie Gunnar Waldt (St. Paul’s School), who is on the Tewaaraton Watch List for the third straight year.
Since the award was first given out in 2001, only four midfielders have won it and the rest were attackmen.
So, is that to say that there haven’t been any really great defensemen or goalies worthy of the award?
Or, is the Tewaaraton Selection Committee just too concerned with the goal...
