Yearling Brendan Nichtern of the Army West Point men's lacrosse team was named to the 2020 Tewaaraton Award Watch List on Thursday.
The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and female college lacrosse players in the United States. The selection committees are made up of premier collegiate coaches and are appointed annually by The Tewaaraton Foundation.
"I am pleased and proud for Brendan to receive this well-deserved recognition," said head coach Joe Alberici. "He is a tremendous competitor, skilled player and above all a great teammate."
Nichtern has been a dominating force in Army's offensive efforts. The yearling set the single season assist record last season with 50. He totals 95 points in his career and will be the youngest Cadet to make the 100-point list in the 103-year program history. This season, Nichtern averages 7.5 points per game. Read more.
