Curtis Grad Landon Carr Earns Prestigious Awards at University of Maryland

Curtis product Landon Carr was honored with the "Big Man" and "Iron Terp" awards from the University of Maryland.

Lacrosse standout Landon Carr from University Place was recently honored by the men's lacrosse program at the University of Maryland

Carr, who graduated from Curtis High in 2009, was honored with the Terrapin's "Big Man" and "Iron Terp" awards. 

The "Big Man" award is annually presented to a Terrapin lacrosse player in honor of former longtime Maryland coach Dick Edell. The award was created to honor the player that best exemplified the selfless and positive qualities of the retired coach. The "Iron Terp Award" is presented to the strongest "pound-for-pound" Terrapin lacrosse player. Carr was the only Terrapin in 2012 to receive two awards.

While at Curtis, the senior midfielder was a 2009 U.S. Lacrosse All American as a senior and two-time first team All State honoree.

Carr’s teammate, Drew Snider, from Seattle also received an award from the school. The 2006 graduate of O'Dea High School and prep lacrosse standout at Garfield High School, where he was a three-time first team All State honoree, was honored with the William Cole Award presented to the school's best overall midfielder.

The awards were presented September 30 at the annual Maryland Lacrosse Fall Banquet in College Park, Maryland.

Both saw action in Maryland's 2012 run to the NCAA men's lacrosse championship game, where the Terrapins finished runner up for the national title to Loyola of Maryland.

You can cheer on Carr and the Terrapins at next weekend's Seatown Classic in Seattle. The Saturday, Oct. 13 game between Maryland and Denver gets underway at 2 p.m. at Starfire Sports Complex

Tickets are $22 and available at www.SeatownClassic.org.
