WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Soccer Times has selected five Pacific-10 Conference men's soccer players from four member schools to its 2005 College Coaches Men's All-American Team.
UCLA's Marvel Wynne, a defender from Poway, Calif., was named Defender of the Year and earned first team honors by the magazine. A semifinalist for the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy, Wynne scored one goal in 2005, the first in two seasons at UCLA. Posting three assists in 2005, he was twice named to the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week. As a defender, Wynne contributed to UCLA's 14 shutouts this season and helped limit eventual national champion, Maryland, to zero shots on goal.
Wynne is joined by his teammate, junior defender/midfielder Patrick Ianni, who was named to the Soccer Times second team. Last year's Pac-10 Co-Player of the Year, Ianni was also named a seminfinalist for the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy. Ianni, who hails from Lodi, Calif., finished 2005 with two goals and two assists, both career bests. Defensively, Ianni and Wynne were instrumental in UCLA's 14 shutouts this season and helped limit eventual national champion, Maryland, to zero shots on goal.
Calen Carr and Tyson Wahl of CALIFORNIA were also named to the second team. Carr, the 2005 Pac-10 Player of the Year, finished his senior season leading the Pac-10 in seven categories: shots (91), shots per game (4.33), points (30), points per game (1.43), goals (13), goals per game (0.62), and game-winning goals (6). The Berkeley, Calif., native helped the Bears advance to the NCAA quaterfinals for the first time in program history after scoring two critical goals against Wake Forest in the Sweet 16.
A native of Newport Beach, Calif., Wahl was chosen to ESPN The Magazine's Academic All-District VIII men's soccer team for his outstanding academic achievement and athletic skill. The senior defender from Newport Beach, Calif., started every game of his career for Cal, and finished the 2005 season second on the team in goals (5), two of which were game-winners.
WASHINGTON'S Mike Chabala received third team accolades, while Tally Hall of SAN DIEGO STATE earned honorable mention nods. Chabala, a senior midfielder from Fresno, Calif., finished his career at Washington this season with 26 career points on five goals and 16 assists. He was a two-time second-team All-Pac-10 selection and a two-year team captain for the Huskies.
