Dec. 6, 2010

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has announced the 2010 NAIA Men's Soccer All-America Teams, as selected by the NAIA Men's Soccer All-America Selection Committee. There are three teams in addition to an honorable mention list.

Junior forward Luke Holmes of Notre Dame College (Ohio) was honored as the 2010 Brine-NAIA National Player of the Year. The native of Oldham, England earned the American Mideast Conference Player of the Year title. On the year, he led the team with 24 goals and 58 points. He went for five goals and two assists in five National Championship matches in leading the Falcons to a school-record runner-up finish at the tournament. For his efforts in the National Championship, he was tabbed the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament. His goal total is third-most this year in the NAIA and the points mark is No. 3 on the list. So far in his three-year career, Holmes has recorded a school-record 70 career goals and 164 points.

The Brine-NAIA Men's Soccer Coach of the Year will be released in mid-January during the NSCAA National Convention in Baltimore, Md.
