MSU Denver men's soccer player Marc Herschberger was named Capital One Academic All-America of the Year for NCAA Division II on Nov. 28. The teams were selected by College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Academic All-America of the Year is one of the country’s most prestigious academic awards for scholar-athletes, and Herschberger is the first men's soccer player from the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference to earn it.
Herschberger, a senior forward from Westminster, is double-majoring in business management and business marketing and has a 3.91 grade point average. On the field, he was named first team all-RMAC and second team all-region after scoring 12 goals and notching four assists for 28 points, while starting all 20 games for the Roadrunners.
Academically, Herschberger became the first two-time winner of the RMAC Academic Player of the Year award this season and was named third team Capital One Academic All-America last year. He has also earned the Division II Academic Achievement Award twice in his career and has been named to the athletic director's honor roll all six of his semesters at MSU Denver.
In other news, the team had three players named to the Daktronics all-South Region team. Herschberger, freshman Danny Arrubla and junior Andrew Mejia were all named to the second team.
The Roadrunners finished the season 12-7-1 overall and third in the RMAC with an 8-5-1 mark in conference play.
