The 2011 Capital One Academic All-District ® Men's Soccer Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One became the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's Academic All-America teams programs in 2011. Southwestern junior, Evan Perkins, was selected to the Second Team.
Perkins leads the Pirates in goals this year with 10 and points with 22 and is also tied for second on the team with two assists. His 10 goals is fifth most in the SCAC.
Perkins is a Biology/Pre-Dental major at Southwestern and touts a 3.5 grade point average.
Southwestern closed out the 2011 season at the first SCAC Conference Tournament, advancing to the semifinals after defeating Colorado College before losing to eventual champion Oglethorpe.
The Academic All-District ® teams include the student-athletes listed on the following pages and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the first year of the expanded Academic All-America® program as CoSIDA moves from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non Division I) and doubles the number of scholar-athletes honored. The teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.
The Capital One Division II and III Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2011-12 DII and DIII Academic All-America® teams program.
