Maryland lacrosse attackman Logan Wisnauskas has been named a 2022 ESPY nominee, ESPN announced Tuesday.
Nominated for "Best College Athlete, Men's Sports," he led the Terrapins to the 2022 national championship as the sport's first undefeated champions since 2006. The team's 18 wins are the most by an undefeated champion.
Wisnauskas, who earlier this month won the 2022 Tewaaraton Award as the NCAA’s best male lacrosse player, is Maryland’s third ESPY nominee. Matt Rambo got the nod in 2017 after also winning the Tewaaraton and a title, while Juan Dixon did in 2002 after leading Maryland that year’s national championship.
The award show will be held July 20.
The top pick in the 2022 PLL Draft, Wisnauskas also was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, was a unanimous All-American, and was honored by USILA as the Lt. Raymond J. Enners Outstanding Player of the Year.
This season, he became the record-holder for points in a season (103), goals in a career (205) and points in a career (340). He finished fourth all-time in career goals and 11th all-time in career points among all NCAA Division I men's lacrosse players.
