Hutson Named Capital One Academic All-America
YORK, PA – York College junior attack Tyler Hutson (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) has earned Capital One Academic All-America At-Large third team honors announced on Tuesday morning by CoSIDA.
Hutson is the first Spartan in school history to earn a national berth on the At-Large squad. The At-Large designation draws male student-athletes from lacrosse, golf, fencing, gymnastics, ice hockey, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, water polo, and wrestling.
Hutson was one of 45 student-athletes to earn the at-large honors and was the only men's lacrosse player to make one of the three national squads.
Hutson capped another wildly successful year as he earned first team All-Capital Athletic Conference honors for the third consecutive season in early May. Hutson tallied a team-high 52 goals while he also had 13 assists for 65 points. He recorded a team-high nine man-up goals while he also notched four game-winning goals. Hutson totaled 41 ground balls and forced seven opponent turnovers in his 20 games of action.
Hutson is the Spartans' all-time leading scorer as he has piled up 210 points on a school-record 161 goals and 49 assists. Hutson has recorded 21 man-advantage goals and 10 game-winning goals in his Spartan career.
The sharpshooting attackman led the CAC in goals scored for the second straight year while he finished sixth in the conference in points.
Hutson helped the Spartans record a school-record 16 wins as they earned an NCAA Tournament At-Large berth for the first time in school history. The Spartans won their first ever NCAA tournament game with their 8-3 win over Susquehanna in the opening round.
Hutson boasts a 3.87 GPA as a marketing major at YCP. He is a five-time member of the York College Dean's List while he is a three-time CAC All-Academic honoree as well as a three-time York College Athletic Honor Roll member.
Spartan head coach Brandon Childs is pleased to see his two-time USILA All-American get honored for his academic prowess.
"Tyler is obviously a fantastic player but his performance in the classroom is as equally impressive," says Childs. "We preach to our players all the time about being a complete student-athlete and Tyler is a great example of a well rounded York College men's lacrosse player."
Hutson is the son of Jim and Karen Hutson.
