Evan Redwood '12 Named USILA Honorable Mention All-America
From a USILA release
Amherst College sophomore midfielder Evan Redwood (Lutherville, MD) was named to the 2010 USILA All-American ranks this afternoon, earning Honorable Mention recognition for his play this season. Today's honor is the first national recognition for the second-year star, and Amherst's first All-American selection since 2007.
Redwood played in every game as a rookie in 2009, but emerged as a leader for the Lord Jeffs in 2010. While scoring 20 goals and dishing out 16 assists this season, Redwood blossomed into a complete player this spring. Often the quickest player on the field, Redwood finished the year with 47 hard-earned ground balls to rank second on the team in that category.
Last week, Redwood was named to both the First Teams for the New England Small College Athletic Conference and the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. After missing out on post-season honors as a rookie, despite ranking fourth on Amherst's points list for the year, Redwood completed the triple this spring with conference, regional and national honors to his name.
Classmate, and fellow midfielder, Alex Fox (Garden City, NY) earned Second Team NESCAC and NEILA honors last week, but was left off the USILA All-America lists this season. With both players returning to Amherst's first line next season, the Lord Jeff midfield will look to move forward with the talented tandem at the core of its offense in 2011.
