SAINT LEO, Fla. – Saint Leo men's lacrosse junior Matt Obermeyer has been named to the 2013 Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Yearbook's All-American team, earning Honorable Mention honors, it was announced Wednesday. Obermeyer is the only Lion to earn the honor this season, and is one of just two Deep South Conference players to earn the approval.
Obermeyer earns the nod after an already prolific two-year career with the Lions. In his sophomore campaign, the Winter Springs, Fla. native earned All-Deep South Conference First Team honors, was the DSC Offensive Player of the Week (3/19/12), earned Academic All-District First Team credit, and was the recipient of the Excellence Core Value Award.
In 2012, Obermeyer led the team in goals scored with 38, and tacked on six assists for 44 points on the season, good for second best on the squad. Competing and starting in 13 games, Obermeyer set a new program record for goals in a season (38g), and goals per game in a season with 2.92. He added 19 ground balls and caused five turnovers on the season, and was indispensable to the Lions attack unit.
His first season with the Lions, Obermeyer was named Deep South Conference Freshman of the Year, and was the DSC Player of the week four times. As a rookie, he led the team in goals scored with 33, and was second on the team in overall points with 38.
Joining Obermeyer from the Deep South Conference was senior middie Thomas Cullop from Catawba.
