The United Soccer Coaches has released the men’s NCAA III 2017 all-region teams.
Luther College had two players recognized on the North Region Team. Named first team all-North Region was senior defenseman Ahmed Osman (Avondale, Ariz./Westview). Named second team all-North Region was junior midfielder Aidan O’Driscoll (Minneapolis, Minn./Benilde-St. Margaret’s). This is the first time both have been so honored. The first team honorees from eight regions are now voted upon for 2017 All-America honors.
This duo helped lead Luther to an overall record of 11-4-5. The Norse captured the regular season Iowa Conference championship posting a mark of 6-1-1. The conference title was the ninth in school history and the third under the direction of Head Coach Chris Garcia-Prats.
Earlier this month, Osman was named all-conference for a second time and the Iowa Conference Defensive MVP, and O’Driscoll was a first-team all-conference honoree.
