Hancock & Brown Named to NSCAA All-Region Team for Connecticut College
NEW LONDON, Conn.--Connecticut College seniors Oscar Brown of Ridgefield, Conn. and Isaac Hancock of Gettysburg, Pa. have been named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-New England Second Team.
Brown is making his second appearance on the squad, while Hancock makes his inaugural appearance on the heels of a superlative senior campaign.
Both players were honored on the All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Men's Soccer Second Team back on Nov. 10.
A four-year starter for the Camels, Brown has proved to be one of the most dangerous offensive threats in the region. In 2009, Brown was honored as an All-NESCAC standout and was also recognized on the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Region team.
Brown has tallied nine goals, nine assists and 27 points during the course of his career. He will receive his economics degree this spring.
"Oscar was one of the most dynamic forwards in the NESCAC over his career," Connecticut College Head Men's Soccer Coach Kenny Murphy said.
Hancock was a captain of the Camel defense and played every minute of every game at center back for Coach Kenny Murphy's squad.
Hancock's leadership was instrumental to the team's success as the Camels finished the season with a record of 9-5-1 and a 5-4-1 mark in the New England Small College Athletic Conference, their second overall and conference winning record in the past three years.
But that did not deter him from maintaining an impressive 3.75 grade point average in the classroom. Hancock was recently honored on the Capital One Academic All-District 2 Men's Soccer First Team in Division III.
"Isaac was the glue to our defense," Murphy said. "He is an exceptional student, a very good player and a quality individual who cares about all of his teammates. We will miss his presence and leadership on and off the field."
Connecticut College allowed only 1.8 shots on goal per game to lead the conference and ranked second in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) with 9.73 shots allowed per contest.
Hancock has been named to the NESCAC Fall All-Academic Team in each of the past two seasons and is a Dean's Honors student at the College. He will receive his degree in Sociology and American Studies in May of 2012.
