DURHAM, N.C.—Duke University senior attackman Jordan Wolf has been named the ACC Offensive Player of the Year the league office announced Thursday afternoon. The ACC major awards were decided in a vote of the league’s six coaches.

Wolf is the first Blue Devil to garner the ACC Offensive Player of the Year award since the conference split the player of the year honor into two categories in 2012. It marks the 11th time a Blue Devil has won a major award presented by the ACC.

The first player in Duke history and seventh in ACC history to be voted All-ACC four times in his career, Wolf has led the Blue Devil offense throughout his career at Duke. The Wynnewood, Pa., native currently leads the ACC in goals (47) and is second in points (72). He has posted at least a point in 56 straight games dating back to his rookie season and is tops among all active players in career points (273) and is second in goals (167). With 25 assists this season Wolf became the fourth Blue Devil and 14th player in ACC history to register at least 100 career goals and 100 career assists.

Wolf will leave Duke as one of the top scorers in both Blue Devil and ACC lacrosse history. He currently ranks third at Duke and fourth in the ACC in career points and fourth and fifth, respectively, in career goals. In addition, his 273 points and 167 goals over the past four seasons both rank 17th all-time in NCAA history. The Tewaaraton Award nominee has registered nine hat tricks this season and 29 for his career and has five-plus points in eight different games in 2014. Over the course of Wolf’s four seasons, Duke has gone 57-19, won the 2012 ACC title and ultimately captured the 2013 NCAA Championship.

Duke closes out the regular season Sunday, May 4 at Boston University. The Blue Devils and Terriers face off at 1 p.m., at Nickerson Field.
