In 2009 he was also named an American Junior Golf Association All-American as well as a picked as a member of the U.S. Challenge Cup and AJGA Canon Cup Teams. Wilson made it to the round of 8 in the 2009 USGA Junior Amateur at Trump National Golf Club, finished 1st in the 2009 MGA Met Amateur, 1st in the 2009 AJGA Nationwide Open at the Ohio State Scarlet Course, and first in the 2009 Carter Cup at Baltusrol Golf Club.

In 2009 Lebow finished 8th in the AJGA Emerson Junior Golf Classic, 9th in the Callaway Junior Worlds, 4th in the AJGA Heather Farr Classic and had multiple other top-25’s on the AJGA Tour. Lebow was also named to the 2009 AJGA HP Scholastic Junior All-America Team. Here's a brief write-up in ESPN's Rise magazine about Scott and another AJGA Insider profile on Scott.

“Cameron and Shane are two very talented and hard working kids. They will both be great additions to our squad and will really fit well with our program and the Stanford family. I really expect them both to make a major impact on our team the minute they step on campus.”

Wilson and Lebow will start with the team next fall as the Cardinal Golfers look to win the 9th National Championship.
