Without further ado, the five candidates are, in alphabetical order:

Nick Marrocco, Sr. G, Duxbury – In his two years as starter in the Division 1 finalist Dragons’ cage, Marrocco has earned just about every honor there is to be had. An ESPN Boston All-State selection last year, this is the Georgetown commit’s second season as a Mr. Lacrosse finalist
