The nation’s top 44 senior boys and girls will be at Towson University this weekend for the 9th Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic. Being named an Under Armour All-American in Lacrosse is like being a McDonalds All-American in basketball; it simply means you’re the best of the best.

The South Boys have won 3 straight with the series tied at 4-4. While the Under Armour honor is only 9 years old you can find their alumni everywhere.

The World Championship Games are being played in Colorado this week and the United States team has 4 Under Armour All-Americans.

On the pro level 3 of the first 4 draft picks in this year’s Major League Lacrosse draft were Under Armour All-Americans.

Two of the most talked about players in Saturdays game are South teammates Shack Stanwick and Jake Seau. Stanwick (Att. 6-0, 195) lead coach Bob Shriver’s Boys Latin Lakers to a perfect 18-0 season and the A Conference championship. Shack set a school record with 334 career points.
