A four-year starter and team captain, Newman was a 2010 All-American and All-Colorado selection and was voted first team all-state and all-conference for the second consecutive year. The school record holder for most career starts, he helped lead Fort Collins to the 2007 Colorado State Championship and a spot in the 2008 state finals. Newman, who played on Colorado’s Under-19 team and was named to the Under Armour Midwest team in 2009, was also a three-time Academic all-state selection.
Thirteen student-athletes will enroll at Ohio State and join the Buckeye lacrosse program in Fall 2010, Nick Myers, Ohio State head coach, announced. The class is comprised of four attackmen, four midfielders, four defensemen and one goalie who hail from 10 states including Ohio, Maryland, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. The group, which was ranked eighth by Inside Lacrosse in their annual recruiting rankings, features eight high school All-Americans and three Under Armour Lacrosse Classic participants.
“We are excited about a dynamic group of young men who will arrive in Columbus next month,” Myers, who is entering his third year at the helm, said. “I am proud of my staff for their effort in assembling a well-balanced class. We are confident this group will compete as hard in the classroom as they do on the playing field. The 2011 class is unique in that it represents 10 different states and truly speaks to the growth of our game across the country. We are confident they will immediately make our family stronger upon arrival this fall.”
