Cohen Earns USILA All-America Honors

Jeff Cohen led the Ivy League with 48 goals this spring (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior attackman Jeff Cohen of the Harvard men's lacrosse team has been named to the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) All-America honorable mention team, it was announced Thursday.

Cohen, a native of Syosset, N.Y., enjoyed one of the finest seasons in Crimson history, ranking second in the country with 3.43 goals per game and 11th with 4.0 points per contest during his senior year. Cohen led the Ivy League with 48 goals and eight man-up goals and was selected unanimously to the All-Ivy League first team. He also garnered NEILA All-New England first team honors and was picked to play in the USILA North-South Game.

Cohen became Harvard's all-time career leader in goals (142) and finished his career tied for sixth in points in team history (167). His 48 goals this spring rank seventh most for a single season in program history, as he recorded 10 hat tricks in 2012. Cohen also scored three goals or more in six straight games from Feb. 28-March 24.

During that stretch, Cohen tallied five goals against Holy Cross (Feb. 28), Duke (March 12), Brown (March 17) and Dartmouth (March 24). He also netted a career-high seven goals in Harvard's 11-7 victory over Michigan March 31.
