NCAA Lacrosse: Men's Championships Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland men’s lacrosse goalkeeper Dan Morris has been named one of 10 finalists for the Senior CLASS Award, per a release from the program.

The award, given to a Division I senior, recognizes student-athletes who excel in their community, the classroom, exhibit outstanding character and perform well on the field. Morris recently graduated with a 3.6 GPA, a degree in psychology and a minor in leadership studies. He’s also pursuing a master of science in business and management. His academic prowess, while impressive, is nothing that should be too surprising. The Dallas native is a two-time Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and a three-time academic all-conference honoree.

Outside of school and campus, Morris has been the team’s community service director since 2015 in addition to being a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success.

After protecting the Terps’ cage en route to the 2017 National Championship, Morris earned All-American honors from Inside Lacrosse and was named to both the NCAA and Big Ten All-Tournament teams. He was recently named a Midseason All-American.

Isaiah Davis-Allen became Maryland lacrosse’s first-ever CLASS Award winner last year.
