CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard attacker Jeff Cohen continues to be recognized for his stellar rookie season, as he was recently tabbed to Inside Lacrosse’s list of Best Freshmen of 2009. Cohen was one of three attackers named to the All-Freshman team.

A native of Syosset, N.Y., Cohen led the Crimson with 34 goals and 41 points and was honored as the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) Rookie of the Year. He also garnered Ivy League honorable mention and was a three-time Ivy Rookie of the Week, as well as a two-time NEILA Player of the Week.
