BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland junior Mike Sawyer was named an honorable mention All-American in the 2012 Face-Off Yearbook, an Inside Lacrosse publication.
Sawyer, who earned All-ECAC First Team honors a year ago was the Greyhounds' leading scorer in 2011, tallying 31 goals and five assists for 36 points. He also led Loyola attackers with 32 ground balls, and he had a team-best six extra-man goals.
The 2009 ECAC Rookie of the Year had eight multi-goal games, including five with three or more. Sawyer set a career-high on March 5 with five goals against Bellarmine, and he promptly matched that with five goals just six days later at Duke.
