Forrest Named Soccer America Preseason All-American

Aug. 30, 2007

SEATTLE - Washington senior forward Kevin Forrest was selected to Soccer America's Preseason All-America team, the publication announced Thursday.

Forrest, a native of Edmonds, Wash., was also named to the watch list for the 2007 Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy - college soccer's top honor - and was selected a preseason first-team All-American by CollegeSoccerNews earlier this month.

Forrest is one of two Pac-10 players to earn a nod to Soccer America's preseason All-America squad, joining UCLA sophomore goalkeeper Brian Perk.

Forrest was the 2006 Pac-10 Player of the Year and a 2006 first-team NSCAA/adidas All-Far West selection. He led the Pac-10 in every offensive statistical category last year including goals (16), while ranking eighth in the nation in goals per game (0.84) and 14th in points per game (1.74). He was twice named to the Soccer America National Team of the Week and tallied three hat tricks on the season - including a three-goal performance to lead UW to a 3-0 NCAA First Round win over Creighton. Not only a standout on the field, Forrest was named an NSCAA Scholar All-American last season as well.

Forrest and his Husky teammates make their 2007 debut on Friday, Aug. 31, versus New Hampshire at the Nike Portland Invitational.
