COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State midfielder Logan Schuss will wrap up his rookie campaign as the most decorated freshman in program history after he was named an honorable mention All-American by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association, the USILA announced Thursday. Schuss, the ECAC Lacrosse League Rookie of the Year and a first team all-conference selection, is the first Buckeye to be tabbed an All-American as a true freshman.
Schuss, from Ladner, British Columbia, ended the year as the Buckeyes’ leading scorer with 31 goals, 25 assists and 56 points, the most points for a freshman in Buckeye history and the 14th-most for a Buckeye in a single season. He was first in the ECAC and 12th nationally (second among freshmen) averaging 3.73 points per game, ranking second (tied) among league players and 15th in the NCAA (second among rookies) with 1.67 assists a game. He was fifth in the ECAC in goals per game (2.07).
Schuss had at least one point in all 15 games on the year, with multiple points in all but two. He ended the season with 21 points in his last four games combined (5.25 points per game), including a career-best seven goals and eight points at No. 4 North Carolina in the season finale. He had three or more points in 10 games, including two six-point outings and two five-point days.
An Ohio State Scholar-Athlete, Schuss earned a league-high six ECAC weekly awards during the season, with two offensive player accolades (March 29, co-May 10) and four rookie of the week honors (March 1, co-March 8, co-March 26, May 10).
Schuss’ award marks Ohio State’s 13th All-America honor since 2000 and the 41st in program history. This is the third-consecutive year a Buckeye has been named to the All-America team, with four honored in 2008 (Kevin Buchanan, Joel Dalgarno, Peet Poillon and Stefan Schroder) and Dalgarno earning a spot last season.
