Senior Jonathan Mendoza
was named Preseason All-America by College Soccer News, College Sports
Madness, and Soccer America this week. The midfielder was
selected to the Second Team by the first two publications, and First Team by the latter.
Mendoza, who was a Third Team All-America selection by the
NSCAA at the end of last season, was the only Atlantic Sun Conference player to
receive recognition on any list. The
senior led the Hatters in scoring a year ago, and already tallied a couple of
scores in the preseason this summer.
The Stetson men's soccer team will open up on the road
against Penn State
and West Virginia
this weekend. The latter's Eric Shoenle
was also honored as an All-American by all three websites this week.
