Conference-USA announced the end-of-season player awards yesterday and Lobo Soccer received tremendous recognition. Kyle Venter was named "Conference Most Valuable Player" and "Defensive Player of the Year". Chris Wehan was named "Freshman of the Year", Ben McKendry and Michael Calderon joined Venter on the All-Conference First Team, Mattie Gibbons was named to the All-Conference Second Team. Michael Kafari, Michael Lisch and James Rogers were named to the All-Conference Third Team. Niko Hansen joined Wehan on the Conference "All-Freshman Team". Congrats to all the boys and well deserved! Individual awards are bittersweet; success and recognition come from a having great players around you and a "team first" mentality. In my mind, all our players are deserving of being named to the "First Team". I can't tell you how incredible everyone on our roster has been and the awards are a result of everyone’s dedication, caring, unselfishness and quality. More to come from Lobo Soccer!
Off to Charlotte, North Carolina tomorrow morning to face the winner of Tulsa/South Carolina on Friday at 5:00 PM Eastern Time. The boys are healthy, fit, excited and prepared. We are really looking forward to this match.
