Feb. 22, 2008
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State Nittany Lion lacrosse player Drew Adams (Springfield, Pa.) has been named to the 2008 Tewaaraton Trophy Watch List, as announced by the Tewaaraton Award Foundation.
Adams, a junior goalie for Penn State, is in his third season as a starter for the Nittany Lions. Already a two-time first team All-ECAC Lacrosse League pick, Adams has won the last two ECAC Lacrosse League Goalie of the Year awards. He was also the ECAC Lacrosse League Rookie of the Year in 2006.
The native of Springfield, Pa., started all 26 games during his first two seasons at Penn State and collected 317 saves. He allowed only 209 goals in over 1500 minutes played for a superb 8.01 goals against average. This year, Adams is already 1-0, having allowed only two goals in Penn State's season-opening win over Robert Morris last Saturday.
The Nittany Lions, 1-0 overall, visit No. 8 Notre Dame this Sunday for a 1 p.m. contest against the Fighting Irish. Penn State's next home game is slated for March 11 when the Lions host Villanova in a 7 p.m. contest.
