Christopher Grey Caps Career With All-Pac-12 Honors
BERKELEY – California men's soccer senior defender Christopher Grey capped a fine career with a berth on the All-Pac-12 second team, the conference announced Tuesday. The veteran has now earned All-Pac-12 honors in each of his four years as a Golden Bear, including first-team selection in the spring of 2021 and two honorable mentions.
"CJ had a fantastic final season and an incredible five-year career," Cal head coach Kevin Grimes said. "His brilliant goal on senior day was icing on the cake for one of the best left backs we've ever had at Cal."
Grey wrapped up his college career in spectacular fashion in Cal's season finale on Nov. 11, when the left back scored his first collegiate goal in a 1-1 tie with Stanford at Edwards Stadium. In the 19th minute of the Big Clasico, Grey took a pass from Alonzo Del Mundo, wove his way through the Cardinal defense and finished with the outside of his left foot to set off a Cal celebration.
His last game marked the 70th start of Grey's Cal tenure. One of the Bears' iron men, Grey ranked second in minutes played for the second consecutive season with 1,283.
Grey also posted the sixth assist of his career in the 2-0 win over Dixie State on Sept. 3, when he and Wyatt Meyer combined to set up Evan Davila's 64th-minute goal.
