WASHINGTON - Graduate student face-off specialist Tyler Knarr (Eagleville, Pa./LaSalle College) has been named a 2014 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) All-American Third Team, when honors were announced on Thursday morning. Knarr becomes the 69th All-America selection in program history and the first since Barney Ehrmann earned the distinction in 2011.

"It's a tremendous honor to have been selected as an All-American," Knarr said. "To join the list of past Georgetown All-Americans is very humbling and something I have strived for since the moment I stepped onto the field in a Hoya uniform."

Knarr, a two-time All-BIG EAST selection, was named to the 2014 USILA/LaxWorld North-South All-Star Game on Tuesday in addition to earning USILA Scholar All-America honors earlier this week.

In 2014, Knarr led the BIG EAST and NCAA Division I in ground balls per game (10.93), while breaking his own Georgetown single-season record with 153. He also broke the Hoyas' single-game ground ball record with 18 against Furman on March 11. Knarr led the BIG EAST and finished third in the nation with a .659 face-off win percentage. He shattered the Hoyas' single-season face-off win record, with 207, breaking Andy Corno's previous record of 186, set in 2004.

Knarr finished his career with a .617 face-off win percentage, the second-best mark in GU history, behind only Corno (.641). He is also second in GU history, behind Corno, in career face-off wins (463) and ground balls (308). His 10 points (5 goals, 5 assists) placed him among the active career scoring leaders among long-stick players.

"Tyler truly earned his spot as an All-American," Head Coach Kevin Warne said. "He prepared extremely hard for each game and really developed into a very good face-off man under Coach Tim O'Branski, who helped him evolve his game-by-game strategy."

Knarr will represent the Hoyas for the final time as a part of the South Team in Monday's 2014 USILA/LaxWorld North-South All-Star Game at M&T Bank Stadium. The Game is scheduled for 10 a.m.
