CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland senior Joseph Cahalan has been named to the Men’s Soccer Academic All-Patriot League Team for a second-straight season, as announced by the league office Wednesday.
Cahalan is one of 11 student-athletes to be named to the league’s all-academic team, while he is one of four repeat honorees. The honor also marks the third-straight year he’s been named to an academic all-conference team, as he picked up Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference All-Academic Team laurels in 2012.
A business administration in finance major with a minor in information systems, Cahalan earned CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District honors earlier this month after leading the Greyhounds with four goals and eight points this season. The Reisterstown, Maryland native also notched two game-winners this year.
His first game-winning goal came 18 seconds into overtime against La Salle, when he put away a loose ball off sophomore Dylan Engel’s shot for the 1-0 victory. His second was in the 107th minute of a 2-1 win over Lehigh, when he headed in a cross from Engel. Cahalan also scored the game-tying goals in a pair of 1-1 ties against nationally ranked foes, No. 20 Boston University and No. 23 Navy. Cahalan was named the Corvias Patriot league Defensive Player of the Week for his play against the Terriers and then picked up an honorable mention nod after the Navy game.
The two-time team captain concluded his career playing in 58 games, earning 50 starts. He recorded 11 points on five goals and one assist and helped the Greyhounds to 17 shutouts. Off the field, he’s enrolled in Loyola’s prestigious Sellinger Scholars Program and is one of three Greyhound student-athletes to be a member of the Green & Grey Society.
