Character

Gray is a team leader, both on and off the field. Only in his second season at North Carolina, he was unanimously voted team captain by his teammates prior to the start the 2020-21 season.

His work ethic is inspirational to those around him. Gray is the first to arrive at practice and last to leave. He takes extra shots and encourages the younger players to join him. It inspires them to see the team’s best offensive player putting in additional work. Gray has the physical skills, but also puts in the effort necessary to be outstanding.

Community

The North Carolina men’s lacrosse team is extremely active in the community throughout the year. COVID-19 has limited in-person opportunities this season, but the team has still found ways to serve.

Gray is an enthusiastic part of those efforts and uses all opportunities to be a positive role model.

Competition

Gray, a preseason All-America and All-ACC honoree, is one of the best players in the country. For his efforts in the first week of the season, he was named ACC Offensive Player of the Week. Gray has 10 goals in North Carolina’s first two games.

In the shortened 2020 season, he was named to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List and was a two-time ACC Offensive Player of the Week.
