BALTIMORE, Nov. 17, 2014 — Lacrosse Magazine, the flagship publication of US Lacrosse, has named the University at Albany senior attackman and Iroquois Nationals All-World Team member Lyle Thompson its 2014 Person of the Year.

Already one of college lacrosse’s most talented players, Thompson bolstered that status this year while leading the Great Danes to the NCAA quarterfinals and the Iroquois Nationals to their first bronze medal in six appearances in the quadrennial Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship. Perhaps more importantly, he embodied the spirit of the game while representing the Haudenosaunee — natives of North America and originators of the sport now commonly called lacrosse.

In somewhat of a departure from the typical recruiting event for this time of year, the 2014 Haudenosaunee U-19 Nations Cup took place at the Nichols School in Buffalo on Saturday, with five teams from Western New York and Ontario showcasing their talents on a cold and rainy day.

As part of the Iroquois’ increased effort to put the best players on the field for international competition, the tournament was used as a preliminary Iroquois Nationals evaluation with an eye toward the 2016 FIL U-19 World Lacrosse Championships. All participating players were of First Nations/Native American origin and many would be eligible for the Iroquois Nationals team that will compete for the U-19 world title in Canada two years from now.
