Collin Mailman, Jack Marks earn league lacrosse honors
As an NCAA Division I college recruit, York Suburban senior midfielder Collin Mailman had a lot of expectations to fulfill this season.
The future Drexel Dragon had to live up to the lofty assumptions that he would dominate the York-Adams League and establish himself in a class above the rest.
As a result, Mailman came into the season as the primary target for every opposing defense in each game. That's no easy task game in and game out.
Still, Mailman delivered, and was named the Y-A League's Offensive Player of the Year on Wednesday by the league's coaches.
Dallastown goalie Jack Marks earned Defensive Player of the Year and York Catholic's Shane Harper was named Coach of the Year.
Mailman finished third in the league during the regular season with 54 goals.
Marks, meanwhile, led the league with a .627 save percentage.
Harper turned around a Fighting Irish squad that finished in the bottom half of the league a year ago and led it to a tie for first in the regular-season league standings with Red Lion. The Irish have also earned a spot in Thursday's league title game against those same Lions.
