COLUMBUS, Ohio - Seniors Dominique Alexander and Logan Schuss will serve as captains for the 2013 Ohio State men's lacrosse squad, Nick Myers, Buckeye head coach, announced Thursday. The tandem was selected after a vote by their teammates.
"These men have dedicated themselves and exemplify what Buckeye lacrosse is all about," Myers said. They are confident in their abilities and committed to leading the 2013 Buckeyes both on and off the field. I look forward to working with them as we strive to accomplish all of our team goals."

He is a three-time first team All-ECAC selection and was the 2012 ECAC Offensive Player of the Year and the 2010 ECAC Freshman of the Year. Schuss enters his senior season tied for fourth in Ohio State history in career points (165), tied for fifth with 102 career goals and tied for eighth with 63 career assists, including a team-high 57 points and 39 goals a season ago.
