All-Americans do not come around often.
It takes a certain level of passion to achieve that kind of greatness. 60 goals and 51 assists in a single lacrosse season is good enough.
Meet University senior Alex Battin.
"Alex is an outstanding athlete," University Boys Lacrosse Head Coach Josh Seese said. "Alex was a gymnast when he was younger, which taught him a lot about the development. To watch him play in tight space was a lot of fun. From a leadership standpoint, Alex is a bit mature for his age and has the ability to understand my perspective, which is important for a captain."
"I was just really happy that I was being acknowledged for being a great player and that my efforts had paid off. It didn't hit me for a while that I was able to be a part of that excellence. It was just a great experience to be able to say that I'm an All-American," Hawks senior attackman Alex Battin said.
Only two lacrosse players in the entire state of West Virginia are recognized as All-American's each year. University attackman Alex Battin was one of those players. His 111 points as a senior broke the All-Time Points Record in West Virginia Boys Lacrosse history in 2013.
