Eastern senior midfielders Mike Devine (Cheshire) and Tyler Fresen (Newington) have been selected to the 2014 Faceoff Yearbook Division III All-America team as honorable mention choices.

A total of 87 players divided among first, second, third and honorable mention teams were selected nationwide. Devine and Fresen were among 51 honorable mention picks. A total of 17 players were chosen from New England. Including Devine and Fresen; three were picked from the Little East Conference.

Both Devine and Fresen were USILA Division III All-America honorable mention selections in 2013 and both are fourth-year members of the program. Last year, Devine repeated as an All-America honorable mention selection and first-team All-ECAC pick.

The 6-foot-3 inch, 220-pound Devine was the team's second-leading goal-scorer and third-leading point-producer in 2013. Devine, a three-time All-Little East Conference selection and 2013 LEC playoff MVP, had 36 goals, 17 assists and 53 points in leading the Warriors to their second straight conference playoff title and NCAA tournament berth last spring and final overall record of 10-8 and final No. 8 ranking in the New England Division III poll.

The Warriors open their 2014 schedule March 1 by hosting New England College in the first of four straight home matches.
