Team USA Men’s Lacrosse Profile: Ned Crotty Completes Biggest Year Ever In Men’s Lacrosse Winning World Lacrosse Championship, NCAA Lacrosse Championship, Tewaaraton Trophy And #1 Selection In MLL Draft


Team USA Middie Ned Crotty had a big year in 2010 that included being named Lacrosse Magazine’s Preseason Player of the Year, winning the NCAA championship at Duke, winning the Tewaaraton Trophy and being the No. 1 selection in the MLL draft. Now he has the 2010 World Lacrosse Championship gold to add to his collection. Photo courtesy of Duke Lacrosse.

“…a big year for Crotty that also included being named Lacrosse Magazine’s Preseason Player of the Year, winning the NCAA championship at Duke, winning the Tewaaraton Trophy and being the No. 1 selection in the MLL draft. Now he has some gold to add to his hardware…”
 

Four years ago, Crotty was a freshman at Duke University when Pressler, the coach who recruited him, was forced to resign amid rape accusations against three teammates that cost the Blue Devils their 2006 season. Those players were exonerated, but the damage was done.
 
That same year, in a much less publicized disappointment, Canada dethroned the U.S. in the world lacrosse championships. A 28-year reign ended.

Now, Crotty can say he had a hand in bringing closure to both events.

Crotty, the 2010 Tewaaraton Trophy winner who led Duke to its first NCAA championship in the spring, reunited with Pressler with Team USA and led the U.S. to a 12-10 victory over Canada in the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championship final Saturday before 4,651 fans at the University of Manchester.
