Last year during the U18 Team USBOXLA #bctour, Chad Kreuzer‘s gritty, relentless and skilled play turned a ton of heads in British Columbia, many even likening his distinct style to one of the top US-born box players of all-time, Jay Jalbert.

And while the Denver Elite product impressed consistency against top Canadian Intermediate ‘A’ clubs in 2015, his 2016 senior high school season was even more significant.

In recent weeks, Kreuzer, a standout middie at Monarch (Colorado), was named both the 2016 All-State Boys Lacrosse Player of the Year (presented by CHSAANow.com, ColoradoPreps.com and MaxPreps) and BoCoPreps.com Player of the Year – the latter a distinction he’s now received in back-to-back seasons.

“After watching him last summer, seeing him score these honors is no surprise,” said USBOXLA co-founder and Team USBOXLA coach Shaydon Santos. “Chad has a bright future in both field and box lacrosse, there’s no doubt.”

BoCoPreps.com confirmed that Kreuzer’s 333-career points set a new Colorado prep school record, the 2015 Team USBOXLA two-way force telling the site, “I’ve been lucky to have older guys on the team who I could observe and learn from to get better every day.”

Kreuzer, who was also named as a middie on the All-State First Team, will be playing NCAA Division I lacrosse for Furman University next year.
