CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - UVa men's lacrosse senior attackman Chris Bocklet has been added to the Tewaaraton Watch List, as announced by the Tewaaraton Foundation. The Tewaaraton Trophy is awarded to the top male collegiate lacrosse player.
Bocklet (South Salem, N.Y.) joins teammates Colin Briggs, Chris LaPierre and Steele Stanwick, who were named to the preseason watch list. Bocklet has a team-high 20 goals and 121 career scores, needing four to tie Garrett Billings for No. 6 all-time at UVa in career goals.
Stanwick is the reigning Tewaaraton Trophy winner, earning the honor in 2011. Virginia is the only school to have three different players win the Tewaaraton Trophy. Chris Rotelli took home the honor in 2003 after UVa's run to the NCAA title. Matt Ward did the same in 2006 after UVa's 17-0 title season.
The Tewaaraton Award selection committees are made up of top collegiate coaches and are appointed each year by the Tewaaraton Award. "Our selection committees have a passion for this Award and these Watch List players should know that this is a distinction that only the best coaches could provide," said Sarah Aschenbach, Executive Director of the Tewaaraton Award.
In late April, both lists will be narrowed to 25 and these men will earn the distinction of Tewaaarton Nominees. In mid-May, the five Finalists in each category will be announced. These finalists will be invited to the Tewaaraton Award Ceremony, May 31, at the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC.
