Dec. 12, 2003

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Santa Clara University men's soccer defender Ryan Cochrane was named to the 2003 NSCAA/adidas Men's NCAA Division I All-America Second Team, the organization announced today at the NCAA College Cup.

Four players selected to the All-America team did not complete their collegiate seasons, instead traveling to the United Arab Emirates to compete for the United States in the Men's U-20 World Championships. They include first-team selections C.J. Klaas (Washington/Cherry Valley, Ill.) and Ned Grabavoy (Indiana/New Lennox, Ill.), the NSCAA/adidas Boys High School Player of the Year in 2000. Santa Clara's Ryan Cochrane (Portland, Ore.) was a second-team selection, and Michigan's Knox Cameron (Bronx, N.Y.) was a third-team pick. Only six players (all on the first team) were repeat selections from last year.
