Bray named first team one more time this year
Scotland native repeats as first team Scholar All-American
University of Southern Indiana menís soccer midfielder Duncan Bray (Scotland) added another plaque to his mantel with a first team 2003 Scholar All-America selection by NSCAA and adidas. This is the second straight year that Bray has received the award that covers all three NCAA divisions.
Bray was only one of four to repeat on the first team and one of seven to repeat out of 39 student athletes on the three teams.
To qualify for the award, a player must be at least a junior in academic standing (in the second year of attendance at the school if a transfer student), have a minimum of a 3.30 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale), start more than 50 percent of the time and be a significant contributor to the team's success.
This week, the native of Shetland, Scotland, became the third USI menís soccer player to ever be named All-American by the NSCAA. Along with his first team All-American award, Bray was first team All-Region and All-GLVC.
Bray 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 during 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.
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.
