LaxMagazine.com Names Jake Smith As One Of NCAA Lacrosse's Unsung Heroes

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Matt Forman of LaxMagazine.com compiled a list of players of Unsung Heroes through college lacrosse. This is how Forman defines the challenge:

The task: Compile the nation's most underrated, under-appreciated and under-hyped team of silent stars. These are the best players in the country who did not make All-American teams, and being listed on the watered-down, all-inclusive "Honorable Mention" list does not count. To make matters more challenging, only one player from each college could be selected -- or else I would have been tempted to pick every player not named Mike Sawyer and Scott Ratliff on Loyola, or not named Jesse Bernhardt on Maryland.

D - Jake Smith, UMass
Physical, tough-as-nails defenseman and leader of UMass' third-ranked defense. Held Colgate's Peter Baum to two late scores in NCAA tournament first round game. Picked up 28 ground balls and caused 11 turnovers.
