2nd Straight Selection for Attackman


BALTIMORE, Md.Matt Gibson (Point Lookout, N.Y.) added to this spring's list of honors when he was named to the 2011 USILA All-America Team. The Yale attackman, an honorable mention selection for the second straight year, was named to the prestigious squad today.

Gibson, a two-time All-Ivy and All-New England pick, earned the 2011 Walter T. Collins '23 Award as Yale's offensive most valuable player. He led the Bulldogs with 16 assists and was second with 20 goals and 36 points.

The former Chaminade High School star is Yale's first two-time All-American since defenseman Don Gerne was picked in both 1999 and 2000. The last offensive player from Yale to make two USILA teams was attackman Tom Zaccagnino in 1995 and 1996.
