PROVIDENCE, RI – Brown seniors Clay Del Prince (Hamburg, NY) and Roger Ferguson (Washington, DC) have been named Scholar All-Americans by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA). Both Del Prince and Ferguson contributed to the success of the Brown team not only this season, helping lead the team to an 8-6 record, but throughout their careers. They are among 12 Ivy Leaguers to earn recognition as Scholar All-Americans.
A two-time captain of the team, Del Prince was a finalist for the 2013 Senior CLASS Award and was recently named a First Team CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District selection. An Honorable Mention All-Ivy selection and recipient of the team's Dom Starsia Coaches Award in 2012, Del Prince led the team in caused turnovers (27) and was third on the team in ground balls (38) this past season. He ranked 17th nationally in 2013 with 1.93 caused turnovers per game after ranking 14th in the nation with 1.86 caused turnovers per game in 2012.
An Honorable Mention All-Ivy selection in 2013, Ferguson is a dynamic long stick midfielder, who picked up 50 ground balls to rank second on the Brown team. He wasn't afraid to mix it up in the offensive zone, registering goals against Quinnipiac, Harvard and Dartmouth, while handing out seven assists. His 15 caused turnovers were third on the Brown team.
In 1989, the USILA Scholar All-America Program was established to recognize student-athletes from USILA member institutions who have distinguished themselves academically, athletically and as citizens of their communities. The USILA Selection Committee selects an overall team representing Division I, II and III. The Scholar All-Americas are recognized at the annual Lacrosse All-America Banquet.
