West Virginia University men?s
soccer players Eric Schoenle, Raymon Gaddis and Andy Bevin were named to
National Soccer Coaches Association of America?s (NSCAA) all-Northeast
region teams today.
Schoenle earned first team honors, while Gaddis and Bevin were on the
second team. Schoenle and Gaddis are receiving the honor for the second
time as they were third and first team members, respectively, in 2009.
A Yardley, PA., native, Schoenle started all 20 games in 2011 and was
third on the team with nine points, recording three goals and three
assists. Defensively, Schoenle helped to anchor a backline that recorded
eight shutouts and allowed an average of four shots per game. Schoenle
is a two-time all-BIG EAST selection.
Gaddis, an Indianapolis, Ind., native, played in 17 games last year,
missing some action late in the season due to injury. Gaddis recorded
one assist and took three shots. As one of the top right backs in the
nation, Gaddis helped to allow just 26 goals by opposition this season.
Gaddis is a two-time all-BIG EAST selection and was on the Hermann
Trophy watch list in 2010 and 2011.
A Napier, New Zealand, native, Bevin finished his rookie campaign with
a team-leading seven goals, along with two assists for 16 points. Bevin
started all 20 matches at the forward position. Bevin was previously
named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year, while earning third team all-BIG
EAST honors as well.
West Virginia finished the 2011 season with an 11-8-1 record, 6-3-0 in
BIG EAST play. The Mountaineers advanced to the second round NCAA
tournament for the second consecutive season.
