Yale men's lacrosse star Matt Brandau is having a very good month.

Brandau, a three-time All-American and the Ivy League’s all-time leader in career goals and points, has been named a finalist for the Tewaaraton Award, which annually honors the top male and female college lacrosse players in the country.

Brandau, who is from Timonium, Md., is one of five men’s finalists for the award. The winner will be announced at the Tewaaraton Award Ceremony at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian on May 30.

The other finalists are: Notre Dame grad goalie Liam Entenmann, Notre Dame grad attack Pat Kavanagh, Duke senior attack Brennan O’Neill and Virginia grad attack Connor Shellenberger.

Brandau finished his career with Ivy League records in goals (201) and points (167).

The postseason accolades have rolled in this month.

Brandau was named the Ivy League Player of the Year and was a unanimous first team selection when the conference awards were announced on May 1.

He was then selected by Philadelphia in the first round, seventh overall, of the Premier Lacrosse League Draft on May 7. Two days later, the Tewaaraton Award finalists were announced.

Brandau finished the season with 106 points, the second most in Yale history and the sixth most in Ivy League history. That included 47 goals and 59 assists.
