Ohio State senior attacker Logan Schuss was named the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference’s (ECAC) Offensive Player of the Week Tuesday.
“It’s a nice honor, it goes to show all the hard work that’s being put into the offense,” Schuss said. “Guys are working hard to get me the ball and I’ve just got to do my job putting it in the net.”
The senior captain scored a career-high 10 points in the season opener against Detroit, tallying seven goals and three assists, and followed it up with three points in the Moe’s Southwest Grill Classic against Jacksonville on Sunday.
“It wasn’t my best performance,” Schuss said Tuesday about the Jacksonville game. “I think I rushed a couple of shots, they were doing some different things on defense against me matching up. I think I’m going to work on a new game plan going into next week and see if we can get the offense clicking.”
Schuss, who was named the ECAC Offensive Player of the Year last season, was drafted No. 11 overall in the Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft by the Ohio Machine in the offseason. Fellow captain and senior midfielder Dominique Alexander and senior midfielder Kevin Mack were also drafted by the Ohio Machine.
Schuss looks to continue his hot streak against Marquette on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
