Juniors Steve Brett (Fort Hill/Cumberland, Md.)
and Mike Mutchler (Leonardtown/Leonardtown, Md.)
and senior Jay Levesque (Bishop O’Connell/Falls Church, Va.)
were named to the 2002 All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Men's Soccer second team.
Seniors Jon Wieland (Hylton/Woodbridge, Va.) and Mike Pregnall(Oakton/Herndon, Va.) and junior Onyibo Ilochi (Rockville/Silver Spring, Md.) were given honorable mentions.
Head Coach Keith Byrnes says he is happy for the players selected and that they are well-deserving of their honors, but that many of them could have been selected at a higher level.
"Unfortunately, with the season we had some of them didn't post the statistics that they normally would have."
Brett, a forward, led the Bobcat offense with six goals and four assists for a total of 16 points. Byrnes is excited about Brett returning next season to lead the offense.
Levesque, described by Byrnes as "one of the best defenders in the league," started all 19 games and played a pivotal role in many of FSU's close contests. He had one goal and one assist for the season.
Mutchler, another defender who started in all 19 games, provided solid defense throughout the season and helped keep the Bobcats in a lot of games.
Wieland, an All-AMCC first team pick last season, led the Bobcats with five assists and had four goals on the season for a total of 13 points.
Ilochi, a midfielder, earned honorable mention honors for the second straight season, after recording three goals and two assists. Ilochi had the game-winning goal in FSU's exciting 3-2 win over visiting Washington & Jefferson.
Pregnall had 83 saves and a 1.39 goals against average on the season and is described by Byrnes as "an outstanding keeper who I would pick for my team any day." Pregnall had some huge stops this season, including a major save against host Mary Washington that allowed the Bobcats to make a remarkable comeback and win 3-2 in double overtime.
