The National Junior College Athletic Association has announced its 2013 Men’s Lacrosse Players of the Year, for both Offense and Defense. It should come as no surprise that Randy Staats (attack) and Warren Hill (goalie) took home the hardware, or that both players came from Onondaga Community College, which is fresh off winning their fifth straight JuCo title.
Staats led OCC in total points, with 156. OCC played 18 games, which means Staats averaged 8.67 points… per game. Incredible numbers, which also led all of the NJCAA. Staats won two national titles at OCC, and will be playing at Syracuse next year. He was previously named the NJCAA Attackman of the Year, as well as the Region 3 Player of the Year. Staats hails from Six Nations.
Warren Hill was a freshman for OCC, and the goalie delivered immediately. He was a backbone to a stout Lazer defense, and was rewarded with Region 3 Defensive Player of the Year, and NJCAA Goalie of the Year before winning the Defensive MVP award. Hill attended the Hill Academy in Toronto before enrolling at OCC.
