Ben Reeve’s Perfect Season In Review


Is there any better way to end your season than to win the NCAA National Lacrosse Championship? For #nlcnation alum Ben Reeves, there is something that is just a little bit sweeter. Reeves was honored with the Tewaaraton Award, football’s Heisman Trophy equivalent, which is given to the most outstanding lacrosse player in the NCAA. He’s been nominated for the award over the last three years but was the clear-choice after helping his team to a National Championship. Reeves finished off his senior season captaining his Ivy League side with an astounding 62 goals and 53 Assists. This was just one of Reeve’s 25 or so awards and honors which he received this season. Among the list was receiving Player of the Year, USILA Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award for the most outstanding player, First Team USILA All American, Yale’s Mallory Award for Top Male Athlete, and of course - he was drafted to the Dallas Rattlers in the MLL Collegiate Draft.

The best part about Reeves? He’s humble; he’ll take credit when it’s due, but he will never go about saying this was all a one-man-job. He gives a great deal of credit to his team, something which makes him the captain he has become for the Bulldogs. He is truly one of Yale’s best to go through the Lacrosse program and could be the best for quite some time to come. Having to juggle such a great and consistent performance throughout his senior season, and finish up his degree in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, everyone can appreciate all that he has accomplished in his four years. Especially from us at the NLC, we are thankful to be able to call you one of our own!
