Five Bears Earn All-Pac-12 Men's Soccer Honors
BERKELEY – Five California men's soccer players – led by first-team selection Christopher Grey – earned All-Pac-12 honors for their play in the spring 2021 season, the conference announced Thursday.
Grey is joined on the All-Pac-12 teams by Francisco Perez (second team), Alonzo Del Mundo (honorable mention), JJ Foe Nuphaus (honorable mention) and Ian Lonergan (honorable mention).
"It's always a great accomplishment to be recognized in one of the best, if not the best, soccer conferences in the country," Cal head coach Kevin Grimes said.
A senior, Grey ranked second on the team in minutes played (876) after starting all 10 games as a member of Cal's backline. The San Jose product also posted an assist on Juan Martinez's goal in a 1-0 upset of No. 3 Oregon State. This is his second All-Pac-12 accolade, including an honorable mention in 2019.
A midfield playmaker for the Bears who hails from Santa Clarita, Perez tied for the team lead in shots with 12 and made nine starts in his senior season. This marks his second All-Pac-12 honor, as he garnered honorable mention last season.
Del Mundo, a redshirt junior forward from Richmond, started 10 games, scored a goal against Washington on April 3 and notched an assist in the season finale at UCLA on April 17.
Foe Nuphaus, a junior defensive midfielder from San Jose, led the Bears in minutes played (922) and started 10 games. He posted career highs in goals (2) and points (4) after scoring in the last two games of the year. Foe Nuphaus was on the All-Pac-12 second team in 2019.
Another member of Cal's talented defense, Lonergan made nine starts and logged 849 minutes to rank fourth on the team. The Manhattan Beach native was also an All-Pac-12 honorable mention in 2019.
