When the PressBox editorial department met to determine its Sportsperson of the Year, it didn't take long to reach a conclusion. The Maryland men's lacrosse team had endured a 42-year title drought and nine championship game defeats before head coach John Tillman guided the Terps back to the top, capturing the national title with a 9-6 victory against Ohio State May 29.

PressBox publisher Stan "The Fan" Charles sat down with Tillman to talk about the drought, what the title meant to the lacrosse community, the top-notch talent that surrounds him at Maryland, and more.
