OCU Soccer Honored with All-Americans
Both the Men's and women's soccer team were honored with players being named All-American. These honors are voted on by the coaches in the NCCAA for their 2010 season.
OCU Women's first All-American's are Liesi South and Heidi Bryan since last year no one from the team was an All-American. Liesi was named to the NCCAA 2nd Team All-American a well deserved honor according to Coach Murton. "Liesi has been a rock helping this program get on it's feet. She has been huge in securing our defense and is one of the better defenders in our region."
Heidi, a freshman, led the team in scoring and made a big impact with her speed. "Heidi is only going to get better. We are so glad she is with us and I am excited to see her grow here at OCU" added Coach Murton.
OCU Men's team also had a first, a returning 1st Team player. Kevin Street was an All-American 1st Team selection last year and is again named a 1st Team player. "Kevin is a major reason for this programs accent the past few years. He will leave it better than it was and I have been proud to coach him", mentioned Coach Murton.
Also named to All-American status was Dave Blamo, the second year in a row he was named 2nd Team All-American. "Dave will break Eman's scoring record and has been a big part of our offense over two years. What has been nice to see from him is his growth off the field too", added Coach Murton.
Steven Fabian came to OCU and started as a freshman in all but 1 game as goalkeeper. He helped OCU be one of the best defenses in the nation and he was also honored as a 2nd Team All-American. "Steven is one of the most athletic players I've been around. He's a big part of our success and we are glad he is with us", added Coach Murton.
The OCU Men also received honors by being named to the All-Tournament team. Kevin Street again repeated and was joined by Dave Blamo, Jorge Aldalla and Steven Fabian who was also named the Defensive player of the tournament.
Congradulations to these players for representing OCU in such good fashion.
