Tuttle joins an elite list of Div. I players who find themselves named to the Inside Lacrosse All-American list. This announcement also continues an impressive season-long string for Tuttle who was previously named to Inside Lacrosse's Preseason and Midseason All-America Second Team.
The midfielder dazzled throughout his career as a Pioneer, finishing his senior season with All-NEC First Team and All-Tournament Team honors. Tuttle racked up 58 points including 39 goals and 19 assists to go along with 54 ground balls while playing in all 15 games. His production helped carry a SHU offense that ranked 10th in the nation in goals per game (13.93) as the Pioneers tallied double-digit goal totals in 14-of-15 games in 2019.
Tuttle finished the season ranked 31st in goals per game (2.60) and 38th in points per game (3.87) among all players in the country. He also made program history, finishing his career as the all-time leading goal scorer in SHU's program history as he racked up 134 goals in his four-year career in the red and white. Tuttle's 198 career points (134 goals, 64 assists) rank second all-time at SHU.
One of the greatest players in program history, Tuttle became the first player in program history taken in the first round of the Major League Lacrosse Draft. Taken sixth overall by the Denver Outlaws, Tuttle heads into his professional debut later this month.
