Boston Lax is excited to announce our ten finalists for the 2nd Annual Bruce Lerch Player of the Year Award. We are excited to present the “Bruce Lerch Player of the Year” on July 9, 2018, at halftime of the Boston Lax All-American game
Last season Boston Lax introduced the first annual “Bruce Lerch Player of the Year” award. The Player of the Year award is named for our former Editor-In-Chief and dear friend, Bruce Lerch, who was so instrumental in growing and covering the game of lacrosse in Massachusetts.
Former St. Sebastian’s and current Cornell University attackman, John Piatelli took home the award last season. Piatelli earned the first annual Bruce Lerch Player of the Year Award, which was awarded at our 2017 Boston Lax All American game at Xaverian.
Piatelli led St. Sebastian’s to an 18-3 record, a 2017 ISL Championship, and was named a US All-American, the 2017 ISL Player of the Year and the Mass Prep Stars Prep/Private Player of the Year in 2017.
While there are many deserving candidates this year Boston Lax has narrowed down the list of student-athletes to 10 standout players.
