Leveille Honored as Lacrosse's Best Player

Who wouldn't want this on their coffee table?
Mike Leveille is your 2008 Tewaaraton Trophy winner. The Tewaaraton Trophy, the “Heisman of college lacrosse”, is awarded to the best college lacrosse player in the nation every year. Typically it is awarded to the best player on the best team, and that is certainly the case for this year’s award winner. Leveille finishes the year with 49 goals and 34 assists. Leveille, the two time captain of the Orange, also earned 42 ground balls. He finishes his career with Syracuse ninth on the all time goals list with 132, 12th in assists with 83, and 12th in points with 215. Congratulations to Mike Leveille also for being picked #3 in the Major League Lacrosse college draft on Wednesday by New Jersey, only to be traded to Chicago where his older brother Kevin plays. Mike has had a stellar career with Syracuse and will surely continue that tradition with Chicago, or whatever other professional lacrosse team he plays for. Congratulations to Mike Leveille once again. H/T to JBren.

Congratulations also go out to Katie Rowan of the woman’s team for being one of the five finalists for the Tewaaraton Trophy on the women’s side. The award went to Hannah Nielsen of Northwestern, winners of the National Championship.

We continue our National Championship coverage with a podcast to appear over the weekend, as well as a season in review early next week. Keep celebrating, because Orange::44 certainly still is.

Also a programming note, I will be appearing on “On The Block” with Brent Axe today in the 3:30pm segment for a Syracuse Year In Review. It should be a good time and you can always listen by visiting ESPN 1260 and clicking on Listen Live button.
