Moore Earns Repeat All-Academic Honor
Dec. 11, 2008
STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford junior goalkeeper John Moore was named to the Pacific-10 Conference All-Academic first team for the second consecutive season. In all, six Cardinal men's soccer players were recognized.
Moore, senior midfielder/forward Tom Montgomery and sophomore forward/defender Bobby Warshaw each earned first-team honors. Junior midfielder Michael Strickland and senior defender Ryan Imamura were named to the second team, and senior defender Tim Jones received honorable mention honors.
Moore, a mathematics major, carried a 3.71 grade-point average in the classroom. On the field, he played every minute of 17 matches, earning two shutouts, making 62 saves and earning a 1.20 goals-against average.
Montgomery, who carried a 3.48 gpa in management, science and engineering, tied Warshaw for the team lead with three goals. The former walk-on was a vital ball-winner and set an example with his fierce play.
Warshaw, who had a 3.66 gpa, was the team's primary offensive threat as well as a capable central defender when pressed into duty late in the season because of injuries. Warshaw had already been named to the All-Pac-10 first team and Topdrawersoccer.com's All-America third team.
Last year, Montgomery and Strickland were second-team All-Academic selections, and Jones and Imamura were honorable mention. For Jones, the selection was his third consecutive.
