Four Florida State lacrosse players earned All-America honors for the 2012 season.  Luke Donovan earned First Team honors, TJ Dugan earned Second Team honors, and Brett Angerer and Nico Beskid earned Honorable Mention All-America Honors.

Donovan, a junior midfielder, led the Seminoles in both scoring (49 goals) and assists (23) en route to First Team All-America and Fist Team All-Conference honors.  He closed the season with four goals in five of the final seven games of 2012, including 4 goals and 3 assists against rival Florida.  Donovan’s 10 goals and 4 assists during the SouthEastern Lacrosse Conference Championship earned him a spot on the SELC All-Tournament Team.  Donovan was also voted Team MVP, and is the second Seminole to earn First Team All-America Honors (along with defenseman Jack Mata in 2011). 

Dugan, a graduate student defenseman, earned Second Team All-America honors for his sound defensive play in 2012.  He also helped the Seminole offense with 3 goals, 5 assists, and 49 groundballs.  Dugan also earned First Team All-Conference honors, and was named to the SELC All-Tournament Team.  Dugan becomes the second Seminole defenseman to earn All-America honors.

Angerer, a junior midfielder, has been named an Honorable Mention All-American.  He tallied 35 goals and 17 assists for FSU this spring.  He scored six goals against Georgia in February, and had the game-winning assist late in the fourth quarter when the Seminoles beat Georgia in the SELC Championship Semifinals.  Angerer also earned All-Conference and SELC All-Tournament Team honors. 

Freshman face-off specialist Nico Beskid also earned Honorable Mention All-America honors.  Beskid won 188 out of 275 face-offs (68%), had 1 goal, 2 assists, and 53 groundballs for the Seminoles.  Beskid earned All-Conference and SELC All-Tournament team honors, and becomes the second face-off specialist to earn All-America honors. 

The Florida State Men’s Lacrosse team has had 20 players earn All-America Honors.  In addition, 4 players have Academic All-America honors, including four out of the past five seasons.  The Seminoles have several Academic All-America candidates for the 2012 season.  Stay tuned to FSULacrosse.com for updates on this award, and other Seminole Lacrosse news.
