York College's Hutson earns men's lacrosse All-America recognition


York College senior attack Tyler Hutson continues to collect postseason awards after concluding his standout Spartan men's lacrosse career.

Hutson has earned a pair of honors from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. He was named as an Honorable Mention All-American and was also named a 2015 USILA Scholar All-American. Hutson has also been selected to play in the USILA North-South Senior All-Star Game on Friday at Cabrini College.

Hutson finished his career holding every career offensive record for the Spartans. He scored 206 goals and dished out 80 assists for 286 career points. His points total is 111 points more than the runner-up Josh Gamble. His 206 goals are 86 more than Gamble, while his 80 assists edged former teammate James Lowe by five helpers.

Hutson owns the career record for man-up goals with 28 while his 15 game-winning goals also is the school standard. He also owns the school record for games played and games started with 72.

Hutson owns three of the top four single-season points efforts and three of the top four goal-scoring seasons, including a school-record 58 in 2013.

He finished 2015 with 45 goals and 31 assists, good for 76 points. He notched five game-winning goals and seven man-up goals. Hutson also had 35 ground balls and eight caused turnovers.

Hutson led the Capital Athletic Conference in points, was second in goals and third in assists. He earned first-team All-CAC honors for the fourth consecutive year.

The USILA All-American honor is the third time in his career that he has earned All-American honors as one of the top NCAA Division III men's lacrosse players. He is just one of 13 players in Division III history to record 200 career goals.

"His career is the best in the history of our program," York coach Brandon Childs said. "We will definitely miss him next year. We will miss his leadership and his work ethic but his legacy and what he stood for will continue to live on."

Childs also feels Hutson's individual recognition shines a positive light on the Spartan squad.

"Everything Tyler has accomplished is nothing short of remarkable," Childs said. "It's a credit to his hard work, his dedication and his work ethic. It's also a tribute to his teammates and players who have helped him accomplish all these milestones. As a coach and as a program, we view all these individual honors as team honors as well. Tyler would be the first to admit that his teammates had a role in helping him be great. He has been a fantastic player to coach over the last four years."

Hutson leaves York as a member of the most successful class in school history. The Spartans made one CAC championship game appearance, earned a berth in the CAC semifinals in all four of Hutson's seasons and also made the program's lone NCAA Tournament appearance last year, when they went 1-1.
