Bray named second team All-American by NSCAA
Senior midfielder is USI’s third soccer All-American
University of Southern Indiana senior midfielder Duncan Bray (Shetland, Scotland) was named second team All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of American (NSCAA) and adidas. Bray is the third USI men’s soccer player to be named All-American, following Stewart Dowd (1983 and 1984) and Greg Henry (2002).
“Duncan has been one of the top players in the region the past two years,” said USI Head Coach Dan Hogan. “Being named second team All-American is well deserved.”
Bray, a two-time first team All-GLVC and All-Region player, led the Screaming Eagles in scoring with 19 points on six goals and seven assists. His 19 points ranked him ninth in the GLVC in scoring, while his seven assists were tied for fourth in the league.
The native of Shetland, Scotland, finished his career with 62 career points on 18 goals and 26 assists. The 26 assists ranks fifth all-time at USI and resulted in nine game-winning goals over his three seasons at USI. The 2002 NSCAA/adidas Scholar All-American also concluded his tenure with the Eagles by scoring four game winning goals of his own.
“It is an honor to be named among the top players in the country,” said Bray, a 2002 College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-American. “This award is a testament to the direction the program is going and to my coaches and teammates.”
Bray and the Eagles have been a great combination the last two seasons, producing back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 1991 and 1992 and two-straight GLVC Tournament semifinal appearances for the first time since 1990 and 1991. Over the last two seasons, USI is 15-5-0 (.750) in the GLVC, 23-15-1 (.603) overall.
The Eagles also appeared in the NSCAA Division II national ranking for the first time since 1991.
