Concordia junior men’s soccer student-athlete Nathan Douglas has been named to the Capital One Academic All-America® College Division third team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced Monday.
As a Capital One Academic All-District 6 team honoree of the College Division, Douglas was automatically placed on the ballot for All-America consideration. Just 33 collegiate men’s soccer players nationally are named to one of the three Academic All-America teams in the College Division, which is comprised of student-athletes from the NAIA, Canadian and two-year institutions.
The physics major and math minor from Winnipeg, Canada, joins Morningside’s Cameron Meter as the only two men’s soccer Academic All-Americans from the GPAC. Douglas, a 2012 first team all-conference selection, led the Bulldogs in goals for the second-straight year with 11 and now has 29 for his career, two behind teammate Aaron Skipworth and former Bulldog Bernie Ochoa for the most in school history. Douglas is also highly respected for his work in the classroom.
Nearly 4,000 student-athletes across all men’s and women’s sports nationally receive All-District honors for their all-around accomplishments in the classroom, in the community and in competition. Student-athletes (sophomores through seniors) who have achieved cumulative grade-point averages above 3.5 and have performed at a high level on the playing field receive greatest consideration for the All-District teams.
Concordia’s Mitchell Cherney (football), Emily Fleming (soccer) and Rachel Mussell (soccer) also collected all-district honors.
