The USILA All-American Team is an honor given annually to the best American men's college lacrosse players at their respective positions by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. The term All-American is derived from the same practice in American college football, in which the first such team was selected by Caspar Whitney and Walter Camp in 1889.[1] The first USILA All-Americans were named in 1922, and consisted of a first team, second team, third team, and honorable mention selections. Today, separate selections are made at the NCAA Division I, Division II, and Division III levels.[2]

Only six players have ever been named to the USILA All-American first team all four years of their college eligibility: Doug Turnbull of Johns Hopkins (1922-25), Everett Smith of St. John's (1934-37), Frank Urso of Maryland (1973-76), Del Dressell of Johns Hopkins (1983-86), Jason Coffman of Salisbury State (1993-96), and Mikey Powell of Syracuse.
