Douglas heads list of OWH men’s soccer honorees

Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska soccer teams

Junior forward Nathan Douglas continues to rake in postseason honors with the release of the Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska soccer teams. Douglas was the lone Bulldog named to the team while freshman defender Sean Doran and senior forward Aaron Skipworth were awarded honorable mention status.

Douglas, a native of Winnipeg, Canada, has picked up a laundry list of 2012 accolades, including first team all-conference, Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete, Capital One Academic All-America and All-District recognition. Douglas led the Bulldogs with 11 goals for the second straight season.

Doran, a native of Dublin, Ireland, earned second team all-conference mention after tallying five goals and four assists in 2012. He was part of a back line that held opponents to just 1.16 goals per game – a figure that ranked third in the GPAC.

Skipworth will leave the Bulldogs tied atop the school’s all-time leaderboard with 31 career goals and with sole possession of Concordia’s career assists mark with 17. This season the Colorado Springs, Colo., native recorded two goals and five assists in 16 games. Skipworth is a two-time second team all-conference honoree (2008 and 2010) and a two-time honorable mention choice (2011 and 2012).
