was named second team All-America while David Rosenfeld, Franklin & Marshall College, earned third team All-America honors.

The NCAA, which most (but not all) colleges are a member of, offer three levels of competition. Division 1 is the highest level
and is comprised mostly of large universities where the athletes train year round. At the division 1 level, schools may offer
up to 9.9 scholarships for the men's soccer program and up to 12 scholarships for their women's program. At the division 2 level,
schools may offer up to 9 scholarships for men's programs and up to 9.9 for women's programs. Division 3 schools may not offer
athletic scholarships for any sport. Scholarships are usually only offered in fractions to individual players. Most schools
however limit the amount of scholarships to a much lower number than what the NCAA allows. Unlike college football and basketball,
very few soccer players are awarded full scholarships. Some leagues such as the Ivy League (U. Penn, Princeton, Harvard, etc.)
do not allow schools to offer scholarships for athletics.
Unless you are a national team player, or close to it, soccer players need to realize that scholarships are rare. The best
philosophy for those players is to concentrate on having soccer help you get into a school you might otherwise not get into.
College coaches can help a player get into a school that he / she might not otherwise get into, but only to a limited extent.
In the soccer world, a coach can help a student athlete get into a school that is one level higher academically, but not
two or three levels. This is not college basketball or football, the college coaches can only do so much.
Another important philosophy to adhere to is: A student athlete should only choose a school that he or she would like
even if he / she were not playing soccer. Is the school a good fit academically? Is the school a good fit socially?
Would you enjoy the school even if you were not able to make the soccer team? If not, then this is not the right school for you.
