BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Saint Joseph's men's lacrosse senior goalkeeper Pat Dallon has been selected one of three finalists for the 2018 Yeardley Reynolds Love Unsung Hero Award, it was announced by the One Love Foundation on Tuesday afternoon. One Love’s goal is to educate, empower and activate young people in a movement to end relationship violence.
The Yeardley Reynolds Love ("YRL") Unsung Hero Award recognizes the accomplishments of two student-athletes (one male, one female) who demonstrate dedication, integrity, humility, hard work, community service, leadership, kindness and sportsmanship - all qualities Yeardley Love exemplified throughout her life. These student-athletes make a significant contribution to the team in ways that may not be measured in goals, saves or ground balls.
"It doesn't surprise me that Pat would be a finalist for this award," beamed seventh-year head coach Taylor Wray following the announcement. "From giving us a great look when a lefty goalie was next on the schedule, to playing on our scout extra-man unit this season, to always being ready and performing exceptionally in games when his number was called, he has always put his team before himself."
A four-year letterwinner for the Crimson and Gray, Dallon served as SJU's back-up goalkeeper over his career on Hawk Hill and was an integral part of the EMO unit scout team this spring.
Dallon is joined by Jake Pulver of Cornell and Matthew Behrens of Georgetown.
The winners will be announced in late May after an interview process.
