When your accomplishments the previous season are followed by the words "first since Ryan Boyle" or "first since Jon Hess" or even "first ever," there's probably not going to be a lot of suspense when the preseason All-America for the next season comes out.
Princeton junior Tom Schreiber, coming off a monster sophomore season, was named a preseason first-team All-America for 2013 by Inside Lacrosse magazine. Princeton was ranked 13th in the preseason by IL.
Schreiber was a first-team All-America last spring after helping Princeton to the Ivy League championship and the NCAA tournament. He was one of three Princeton players honored by Inside Lacrosse, along with honorable mention selections Jeff Froccaro (senior attack) and Rob Castelo (junior defenseman).
As a sophomore Schreiber put up 32 goals and 28 assists, becoming the first Princeton player since Boyle in 2004 to have a 60-point season and the first since Hess in 1996 to have at least 30 goals and 25 assists in the same season. For that matter, he also became the first Princeton player to lead the team in goals and assists as a freshman and sophomore.
Schreiber was also a unanimous first-team All-Ivy League selection last year and has been a first-team All-Ivy pick each of his first two years.
Froccaro was a first-team All-Ivy League selection last year after having 27 goals and 11 assists, finishing second behind Schreiber in goals and points.
Castelo started all 16 games on defense a year ago.
Princeton graduated three All-Americas: first-team selection Chad Wiedmaier (defense, also the first four-time first-team All-Ivy selection in program history), second-team selection Tyler Fiorito (goalie) and honorable mention selection John Cunningham.
