Perry, N.Y. (6/12/17) – Senior Tyler Randolph has been named a Division III USILA/Nike Scholar All-American as announced by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association.
In 1989 the USILA Scholar All-America Program was established to recognize student-athletes from USILA member institutions who have distinguished themselves academically, athletically and as citizens of their communities. The USILA Selection Committee selects an overall team representing Division I, II and III.
The criteria includes being nominated by his coach and be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 (4.0 scale). He will have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse both on and off the field. He must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or an outstanding league or conference player. Please note that simply being a member of the North/South team and/or being All League/Conference does not make the Student-Athlete a lock for the award. Each Individual will be evaluated on a case by case basis by the Scholar AA committee.
Randolph was a key member of the defense as he scooped up 18 groundballs and forced 12 turnovers. He became the fifth player in program history to earn USILA honorable-mention honors earlier this month and becomes the fourth player to be named a scholar all-american.
He graduated summa cum laude this May with a 3.92 GPA in biology health professions.
