2011 All-Americans Announced

December 05, 2011
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has announced the 2011 NAIA Men's Soccer All-America Teams, as selected by the NAIA Men's Soccer All-America Selection Committee.

Senior defender Derek Prinz of Hastings (Neb.) has been named the 2011 Brine-NAIA National Player of the Year. Prinz becomes the first Bronco in school history to receive the award since it began in 1997.

Prinz, a 2011 NAIA All-Tournament Team selection, led a defense that posted 13 team shutouts and catapulted Hastings to a runner-up finish at the National Championship, a 24-2-0 overall record and Great Plains Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament titles. The Omaha, Neb., native is also making his second-straight appearance on the NAIA First-Team All-America list.

National champion Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) landed junior midfielder Lebogang Moloto and senior defender Chris Williams on the first team.

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