ESPNBoston.com and its high school section announced today that Max Randall, senior defenseman of the Duxbury Green Dragons, is the recipient of its second annual “Mr. Lacrosse” award, presented annually to the top player in Massachusetts.
The Mr. Lacrosse winner was chosen by a panel of experts made up of ESPNBoston.com staff, correspondents and state lacrosse coaches. Randall will be presented with the award at a later date.
“What makes Max Randall so great is that you hardly ever notice him on the lacrosse field, unless you’re paying close attention,” said ESPN Boston High Schools co-editor Scott Barboza, who coordinates the site’s boys’ lacrosse coverage. “Game after game, Randall would systematically take out the opposing team’s top offensive player with little fanfare. That’s exactly why he’s our Mr. Lacrosse this year.”
After playing alongside a bevy of fellow Division 1 college recruits on the Duxbury defense, Randall will play at Dartmouth College next season. The 5-foot-10 close defender was a three-time Patriot League lacrosse All-Star while being named to both the ESPN Boston football (Best of the Rest selection) and lacrosse (First Team) All-State teams as a senior. He also earned an Eastern Mass. lacrosse All-American nod this season.
During his athletic career at Duxbury, Randall was a part of three Dragons’ lacrosse state titles while winning Super Bowls with the football team in both 2010 and 2011.
“Randall has been a terrific role model to future players and his peers,” Barboza said. “Not only has he excelled in multiple sports at a high level, he’s also served as captain in his time with the football and lacrosse teams and maintained a high GPA in the classroom. We’re proud to honor Max as this year’s award recipient for his accomplishments both on and off the field.”
