2017 All-Metro Boys Lacrosse Second Team  

ATTACK

LOGAN MCGOVERN (Junior)
Darien (CT), committed to Bryant

A four-year varsity player, McGovern had to wait his turn to enter the Blue Wave’s starting lineup and when he did the Bryant-bound junior made sure he’d stay there. The lefty had four goals and two assists and surpassed the 100-point plateau in a 16-3 win over Cheshire in the CIAC Class L final, Darien’s fifth consecutive state title.

 

BRENDAN NICHTERN
Massapequa (LI), committed to West Point

The Army-bound attack made a seamless transition from midfield and finished the season as one of Long Island’s top scorers with 48 goals and 45 assists. A bull with an ankle-breaking first step on the split dodge, the senior helped lead the Chiefs to a first Nassau Class A title in three years, scoring a hat trick in the final against Farmingdale.

 

ANDREW ROBBINS
Ramapo (NJ), committed to Lafayette

He performed his duties at attack with a rare combination of ferocity and fluidity. Robbins chased down those tough ground balls against all comers and created headaches every game for rival defenders. He netted 67 goals and assisted on 22 this season to help Ramapo (17-6) claim the Group 2 title.  

 

BRIAN TEVLIN
Seton Hall Prep (NJ), committed to Yale

This versatile playmaker combined a blistering shot with a keen eye for the man more open than he to produce 43 goals and 55 assists this season for the 16-4 Pirates. Tevlin set a single-season record for assists and he also is Seton Hall's all-time points leader with 225.

 

ATTACK/MIDFIELD

KEVIN MACK
Manhasset (LI), committed to Michigan

The Michigan-bound senior attack stepped in for the injured Jack Keogh and not only became Manhasset’s top scoring threat, but he was one of the best attackmen on Long Island. Mack had 35 goals and 28 assists, including six goals and one assist in an early-season loss to St. Anthony’s. He also set up Steve Schneider’s late game-winner against Chaminade.

 

MIDFIELD

JAKE MOSS
Pingry (NJ), committed to Notre Dame

Moss utilized his powerful athleticism, scorching shot and overall leadership to direct Big Blue to their third consecutive Non-Public B title. He accumulated 34 goals (nine in the state tournament) and 18 assists this season and had 77 goals and 53 assists over the last three.

 

EDDIE MUNOZ
Ward Melville (LI), committed to Stony Brook

The emotional leader of the two-time Long Island Class A champions, the Stony Brook-bound two-year starter was a fierce competitor and had a knack for stepping up in the biggest games. The senior co-captain had 33 goals and nine assists, including three goals in 34 seconds late in the fourth quarter in a stunning come-from-behind win over Pittsford in the New York State Class A final. 

 

STEVE SCHNEIDER
Manhasset (LI), committed to North Carolina

The powerful and smart North Carolina-bound senior midfielder had 36 goals and 25 assists and played a key role in Manhasset’s biggest wins of the year, scoring four times in the 131st Wood Stick Classic and netting three goals and adding an assist in a thrilling 8-7 victory over Chaminade in the 10th annual Regs Rock Lacrosse Day for Heroes.

 

LONG-STICK MIDFIELD

TYLER SENERCHIA
Plainedge (LI), committed to Bucknell

The first player in the Long Island Class of 2017 to commit to a college – Senerchia did so early in his freshman year at St. Anthony’s – the Bucknell-bound senior known as “Gooch” gobbled up groundballs with ferocity and then exploded up field to initiate the offense. Smooth, humble and smart, Senerchia had 151 groundballs, 114 created turnovers and scored three goals.

 

FACEOFF

ANGELO PETRAKIS (Sophomore)
Massapequa (LI), committed to Lehigh

The Lehigh-bound sophomore is a big reason why Massapequa captured a county title and reached the Long Island Class A final. Petrakis won 78 percent of his faceoffs and took his dominance to another level in his team’s biggest games. He was 15-of-18 with one goal and 11 groundballs in a 12-3 win over rival Farmingdale in the Nassau ‘A’ final.

 

DEFENSE

MATT DOUGLAS
Delbarton (NJ), committed to Lehigh

He stifled some of the most explosive offensive weapons in the Tri-State the last two years and also did plenty to spark transition with his deft stick skills when issuing checks or negotiating a scrum. Douglas helped the Green Wave go 43-3 and win back-to-back Tournament of Champions titles.

 

BRETT MAKAR (Junior)
Yorktown (NY), committed to Maryland

Makar missed some time early this year and was in the conversation with Boyer for Hudson Valley Player of the Year. The Maryland commit was one of the best defenders in the state for the second year in a row and his attitude and leadership off the field may be the only thing that rivals his defensive ability. 

 

FRANK TANGREDI
Chaminade (LI), committed to Harvard

A terrific student in the classroom and on the lacrosse field, the Harvard-bound senior anchored the Chaminade defense with tenacious and quick stick skills. Tangredi was also fleet of foot and had the green light to go to goal in unsettled situations. He had four goals and six assists, while being a solid on-ball defender.

 

GOALIE

DREW MORRIS
New Canaan (CT), committed to Maryland

A fixture in the New Canaan cage for three years, Morris helped lead the Rams to a third straight CIAC Class M state title, making eight saves in a 9-6 win over Daniel Hand. The Maryland-bound senior, a two-time All-American with a career 5.7 goals against average, was also an All-Metro ice hockey selection for his efforts on the New Canaan blue line in the winter.
