CENTERVILLE, Mass. - For the second-straight week, Air Force senior Mike Crampton has been named the ECAC Lacrosse League Offensive Player of the Week, as released by the league today. It marks the third weekly award for Crampton this season and the fourth of his career. Additionally, Crampton was honored as the Air Force Co-Athlete of the Week.
Crampton, a native of Kinnelon, N.J., led the Falcons' offense with seven points, tallying four goals and three assists in Air Force's 15-12 win over ECAC foe Michigan on Saturday.
