Brown senior Mike Levin was selected in the second round of the 2004 Major League Lacrosse Draft at Fairfield University today. The goaltender was taken with the 11th pick overall by the Baltimore Bayhawks and was one of two players drafted from the Ivy League. Levin impressed scouts with his 9 save performance in the Warrior Major League Challenge which features the elite graduating college seniors playing in an all-star game under MLL rules.
Levin was recently named the New England Player of the Year in addition to receiving First Team All-New England honors for the second straight year. He led the Ivy League in goals against average, allowing just 7.63 goals per game, and posted an Ivy League leading .605 save percentage this season. Levin is a three-time All-Ivy selection, earning First Team accolades as a senior and sophomore, and Second Team honors in 2003.
Levin was named the Ivy League's Player of the Week after limiting Loyola to just three goals, and he registered a season high 17 saves against Syracuse. Levin was also known for his offensive prowess, scoring his first career goal against Harvard, becoming the first Brown goalie since Greg Cattrano in 1997 to score a goal. He also had an assist in Brown's win over Loyola.
