The group is headed by Ryan Cook (Avon Grove), Joey Fiorino, Dillon Hannah, Landry Marshall and Matt Whitcher, filling out the largest group of Scholar All-Americans from any school in 2018.

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 criteria for selection include the following: A Scholar All-American must be nominated by his coach and be a student with a senior year academic standing and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale). He will have behaved in a manner that has brought credit to himself, his institution, and to college lacrosse both on and off the field. He must also be an All-American, a member of a North/South team, or an outstanding league or conference player.

Cook, recently named the 2018 Dr. William DeMeester Academic Award recipient, recognizing the four-year York student-athlete with the highest cumulative GPA, graduated with a 3.88 GPA as a sport management major with minors in marketing and business administration. He graduated Magna Cum Laude and was an eight-time Dean’s List student. He finished his senior season with 41 points on 14 goals and 27 assists.

The five seniors helped York to a 19-3 record, a perfect 8-0 slate in the CAC and berths in the CAC championship and national quarterfinal after a pair of NCAA Tournament wins.
