GREENSBORO, N.C. – Duke senior Jordan Wolf has been named the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year and headlines the All-ACC Academic Men’s Lacrosse Team, as announced Tuesday by Commissioner John Swofford.

A history major, Wolf was named the Most Outstanding Player of NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship after involving himself in Duke’s final five goals of the national championship game against Notre Dame to give the Blue Devils its second consecutive NCAA title and third in the last five years. Wolf also garnered ACC Offensive Player of the Year honors, and led the league in scoring with 103 points on 64 goals and 39 assists. The Wynnewood, Pa., native was a Tewaaraton Award finalist and named a first team All-American by the United States Intercollegiate Athletic Association.

Wolf, who earned his fourth career ACC academic honor, is the third straight Blue Devil to be named the ACC men’s lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year and fourth overall. He is preceded by Blue Devils Brendan Fowler in 2013, CJ Constabile in 2012 and Max Quinzani in 2010.

All six of the league’s men’s lacrosse programs are represented on the All-ACC Academic Team, led by Duke with seven selections. Notre Dame followed with six student-athletes on team, while North Carolina, Syracuse and Virginia each placed five on the team and Maryland with four.

Duke’s Christian Walsh joined Wolf as a four-time All-ACC Academic honoree, while teammate Chris Hipps, North Carolina’s Jake Bailey and Joey Sankey, and Virginia’s Robert Emery and Owen Van Arsdale are all three-time selections.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards were established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. Candidates for the awards must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.

To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic Team, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
