Grant Ament Named PLL’s Attackman Of The Year

Penn State men’s lacrosse legend Grant Ament took home some serious hardware this weekend when he was named the Premier Lacrosse League’s Attackman of the Year.

Ament led the PLL in assists (22) and points (35) in the second year of his professional career.

Ament was selected first overall in 2020 by the Archers. During his redshirt senior year with the Nittany Lions, he was named a first-team All-American.

During his collegiate career, Ament was named an All-American three times — first team in 2019 and 2020 and honorable mention in 2017. He was the programā€™s first-ever Tewaaraton Award finalist in 2019 and was voted the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2019.

Ament set the Big Ten and Nittany Lion record for assists (96) and assists per game (5.65). He set the Big Ten and program record for points (126) and broke the NCAA Tournament record with 25 points.
