Recently someone asked me if I had to pick an All-Star lacrosse team, who would be on the first midfield line. The first guy I picked was Max Seibald, without hesitation.

When I write these little paragraphs describing the accolades of players featured, I normally start by looking at what their respective universities have to say about them.
