The three-time all-league men's lacrosse player and current first-year student at the University of Toledo Medical School is the 13th Albion College student-athlete to be selected for the award. "Joe's receipt of an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship is one of the greatest accomplishments a student-athlete can achieve," Athletic Director Matt Arend said. “I was delightfully satisfied to receive this award," said Silvestri, who majored in biology. "For me, it stands second only to the team MIAA championship that was won back in May.”
