WASHINGTON -- The Tewaaraton Foundation announced the 2012 Tewaaraton Award nominees, as twenty-five players made the list and remain in the running of the 12th annual Tewaaraton Award.The list includes Cornell senior midfielder Roy Lang and the Princeton duo of senior goalie Tyler Fiorito and sophomore midfielder Tom Schreiber.

One of the most versatile midfielders in the nation, Lang has used his athleticism to drive the Big Red on offense, defense and wing-play during face-offs over the past four years. A first-team All-American and a unanimous first-team All-Ivy selection a season ago, he has registered 66 goals and 21 assists during his career. He has also picked up 126 ground balls and caused 31 turnovers. This year Lang has served as a two-way player, serving on the team's second midfield and playing a crucial role with the Big Red defense. He has 14 goals and four assists to go along with 22 ground balls and six caused turnovers.

Schreiber leads Princeton in both goals (29) and assists (21), and he is the first Princeton player with 50 points in a season since Ryan Boyle in 2004. With one more goal, the sophomore would become the fifth player in school history - and second in the last 30 years - with at least 30 goals and at least 20 assists in the same season.

Fiorito is second in Division I with a .622 save percentage and third in goals-against with a 6.44. His numbers in Ivy League games are even more impressive at .711 save percentage and 4.83 goals-against.

Five men's finailists (along with five women's finalists) will be selected and honored on May 31, 2012, at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
