Five Maryland men’s lacrosse players were named United State Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Preseason All-Americans on Wednesday, per release.

Senior defenseman Brett Makar, graduate midfielder Roman Puglise and fifth-year attacker Logan Wisnauskus received First Team honors.

Makar received several awards in 2021, such as Second Team USILA All-American, First Team All Big-Ten and Second Team Inside Lacrosse Media All-American. He has appeared in 39 games throughout his time as a Terrapin. Last season, he picked up 48 ground balls.

Puglise was a 2021 Big Ten Medal of Honor recipient. He has posted 18 points and four assists across 57 games as a Terrapin.

Wisnauskas led the team with 31 assists last season and was second with points (72). He was a 2021 Third Team USILA All-American.

Senior midfielder Kyle Long was named to the Second Team for the second consecutive year. He was named to the 2021 Second Team All-Big Ten and has posted 73 points and 46 assists across 38 games as a Terrapin.

Graduate midfielder Jonathan Donville received Third Team honors. The Cornell graduate transfer was the first overall pick in the 2021 NLL Entry Draft. He finished his time with the Big Red with 38 goals, 31 assists and 68 shots-on-goal. Donville’s dominant play level led him to be named an Inside Lacrosse Second Team All-American in 2020.
