SEWARD, Neb. – Senior Nathan Douglas has appropriately ended his accomplished Concordia career with another all-conference honor, as announced by the GPAC on Monday. The Winnipeg, Canada, native has received first team all-conference recognition for the second-consecutive season following a second team all-conference season as a sophomore.
The Bulldogs also earned two second team choices in junior midfielder Chris DeFeyter and sophomore defender Sean Doran. It marks the second-straight second team appearance for Doran and the first for DeFeyter. Meanwhile, both freshman defender Mark Campbell and sophomore midfielder Gideon Soenksen were named honorable mention.
Douglas ended his four-year run with a career best 14 goals in 2013, giving him a program record 43 for his career. Douglas also set a career high with seven assists and 35 points. Had it not been for a huge season from Midland’s Adam Wood, Douglas may have taken the GPAC Player of the Year award.
DeFeyter, who hails from Scottsdale, Ariz., busted out in 2013 with a career best six goals to go along with two assists. DeFeyter (also a 2011 honorable mention pick) proved a steady compliment to Douglas in the goal-scoring department. On the defensive side, Doran again provided an intimidating center back presence with his 6-foot-6 stature. The native of Dublin, Ireland, also contributed two goals and one assist.
Campbell stepped into a starting role in game No. 9 and immediately provided a significant boost to the defensive effort while Soenksen (two goals, three assists) was a force in the midfield.
