Ranking third on the team with 43 points, the Orlando, Fla. native was one of Springfield's most dependable offensive weapons, as he scored at least three points in 10 games. He was named to the Pilgrim All-Conference Second Team this season.

Eaton, who was earlier this week named the Pilgrim Lacrosse League Player of the Year for the second-straight season, had another dominant season for Springfield. The Westford, Mass. product has gone 169-254 from the face-off “X”, totaling a 66.5 winning percentage.
