York College men's lacrosse player Hutson picks up another national honor


York College men's lacrosse standout Tyler Hutson picked up the final accolade in his stellar Spartan career when he was named to the Capital One Academic All-America At-Large Second Team.

The honor was announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America on Tuesday afternoon.

Hutson graduated from York College three weeks ago with his degree in marketing. He concluded his academic career as a seven-time dean's list honoree. He graduated with a 3.77 grade-point average.

The honor marks the second time that Hutson has been named a National Academic All-America honoree. He was a third-team selection after his junior campaign.

Hutson closes out his Spartan career as the most decorated player in the 16-year history of the men's lacrosse program.

He concluded his four years in York as a four time All-Capital Athletic Conference selection, a three-time United Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association All-American, a two-time Capital One Academic All-American, the 2012 CAC Rookie of the Year, the 2013 CAC Player of the Year and the 2015 CAC Male Scholar Athlete of the Year. He also took home the 2014-2015 Daniel J. Klinedinst Award signifying York College's most outstanding senior male athlete.

"Tyler was a special player and is a special person," York men's lacrosse head coach Brandon Childs said. "I have said this a number of times, but he is a guy who has always made the right decisions on and off the field. He has set a standard for all York College lacrosse players to strive for moving forward."

He concluded his senior year with 76 points on 45 goals and 31 assists in his 19 games. Hutson owns the career scoring record with 286 points on 206 goals and 80 assists, both school records. He is just one of 13 players in NCAA Division III men's lacrosse history to reach 200 goals for his career.

The Spartans won a school-record 48 games during Hutson's time in York, with 20 of those wins coming in conference play. He led the Spartans to their first-ever CAC championship game last year while York also qualified for the NCAA Division III Tournament. The Spartans picked up their first-ever NCAA win with an 8-3 victory over Susquehanna in the tournament's opening round.
