Penn State Men’s Soccer trio named Scholar All-Americans

·1 min read

Achievement on the playing field comes with hard work on the practice field. Achievement in the classroom comes through self-discipline outside of the classroom and the practice field. Three Penn State soccer players proved they had the goods on the field and in the classroom.

On Thursday, the United Soccer Coaches named their Scholar All-America Team. Three Penn State Men’s Soccer players were included in that list; Brandon Hackenberg, Seth Kuhn, and Pierre Reedy.

Brandon Hackenberg and Pierre Reedy were named to the first team while Seth Kuhn made the 2nd team.

The three Nittany Lions are the program’s first Scholar All-Americans from United Soccer Coaches since David Walters in 2004.

Penn State’s men’s soccer team made the NCAA Tournament and defeated UMass in their second-round matchup (Penn State had a bye in the first round). But the Nittany Lions saw their tournament run come to a brief end with a tough 3-2 loss to Georgetown in the third round. Georgetown lost to eventual national champion Marshall, who edged Indiana 1-0 in the national championship game.
