Cornell's Haber, Brown's Remick Earn NSCAA All-America Honors
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Cornell junior
Daniel Haber and Brown senior Dylan
Remick were named National Soccer Coaches Association of
America (NSCAA) All-Americans, receiving first team and second team
Haber, who led the team with 18 goals and 43 points, also led the country in goals per game (1.06) and points per game (2.53). His scoring prowess – including five game-winning goals – helped the Big Red to its first Ivy League title since 1995 and its first NCAA Tournament berth since 1996. Cornell has not had a first-team All-American since defender Kip Jordan in 1973 and has not had any player make an All-America team since Rob Elliott made the second team in 1996. Cornell's last first-team All-American who played forward was Nikos Alexandridis in 1967.
Haber is also the only Canadian player to make any of the three All-America teams, and he was also named a semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy. His 43 points was second-best in school history, behind only Victor Huerta's 47-point year in 1972. Haber's 18 goals were also tied for second in a season in team history. His five game-winning goals – including three in Ivy League play – is the second-best in Cornell history, and his seven assists tied him for seventh ever for the Big Red.
The junior, with one year left in his Big Red tenure, is moving up the career lists as well. He is just 19 points, 12 goals and 12 assists shy of first place in team history.
In November, Haber was named to the All-Ivy first team and was the first men's soccer player ever at Cornell to win the Ivy League Player of the Year award after helping the team to a 15-2 finish. He also won the Ivy League's Player of the Week award a record five times during the season.
Remick started in 18 games and tallied 11 points on two goals and a team-high seven assists. A Biology concentrator with a 3.71 grade point average, Remick is a three-time First Team All-Ivy recipient, including back-to-back seasons as a unanimous selection. In 2012 he earned All-Tournament Team honors at the Brown Soccer Classic and was the Tournament MVP at the Ocean State Classic for his outstanding defensive efforts. He was also named a 2012 New England Intercollegiate Soccer League (NEISL) All-Star and was also awarded CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American honors.
The last Brown player to earn All-American honors in men's
soccer was Jeff Larentowicz, a current midfielder for the Colorado
Rapids, who was named to the team in 2004.
Haber, Remick and the rest of the All-America honorees will be recognized at the annual All-America Luncheon in Indianapolis on Jan. 19.
