BALTIMORE US Lacrosse is pleased to announce the names of the players earning a spot on the 2008 Boys' High School Academic All-America team.  In order to be considered, players must be in senior standing, must be nominated and must meet the minimum academic achievement requirements from their respective US Lacrosse region.  Specific academic criteria may vary from region to region.  Each pre-determined geographic region is allowed one Academic All-American selectee for every 10 varsity teams in the region.  Only varsity coaches that are members of US Lacrosse may vote in the selection of the nominees.  As of late July, the following regions did not submit Academic All-American nominations to US Lacrosse: Fairchester (Conn.), Anne Arundel County (Md.), Baltimore City (Md.), and Harford County (Md.).

We have supplemented the list — where this information is available to us — with players' hometowns and colleges they will be attending for 2008-2009.  Updates of this latter information can be sent to  Questions concerning who is or is not included on the list should be addressed to US LacrossePlease send any updates/corrections to the list (e.g., the proper spelling of a name or the correction of other basic information) to both addresses.  Read more about the selection process at the USL web site.
