Baltimore, Md. – University at Albany’s Jordan Levine has been voted to the 2008 Inside Lacrosse Magazine’s Face-Off Yearbook Division I Preseason All-America Team. Levine, a first-team selection, heads a list of four Great Danes chosen. Corey Small earned preseason third-team recognition, while Craig McDonald and Brett Queener were picked in the honorable mention category.

Levine, a senior from Bethpage, N.Y., totaled 23 goals and 16 assists as a USILA All-America midfielder last year. He established the program’s Division I record with 91 ground balls. He was previously named by the national publication as a Tewaaraton Trophy candidate. Small, a junior attackman, had 24 goals and seven assists as a member of UAlbany’s high-powered offense. McDonald, a senior defenseman, and Queener, a senior goalkeeper, led a defensive unit that allowed 9.44 goals per game.

In addition, Face-Off Yearbook announced its preseason All-America East Conference squad. Senior attack Derek Dale and junior defenseman Garrett Pedley joined Levine, Small, McDonald and Queener on that list. UAlbany finished with a 15-3 record one year ago and reached the NCAA quarterfinal round. The Great Danes were ranked 10th in the final USILA national poll.
