Carlsson, Campbell Earn Patriot League Men’s Soccer All-Academic Honors
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - A pair of Loyola University Maryland men’s soccer players – Jake Campbell and Gabriel Carlsson – were named to the Patriot League Men’s Soccer All-Academic Team on Wednesday for their excellence on the field and in the classroom.
Campbell and Carlsson were two of the 11-member team that is voted on by representatives of each school. Loyola was one of three schools to have two student-athletes on the All-Academic Team.
The Greyhounds will host the 2017 Patriot League Championships on Friday and Sunday, November 10 and 12, at Ridley Athletic Complex after securing their first-ever Patriot League Regular-Season Championship. Loyola will face Colgate University in a 5 o’clock semifinal on Friday evening. Tickets for the weekend’s games are available by clicking here.
A junior from Arlington, Virginia, Campbell has played in all 17 games and started 13 on defense for the Greyhounds. He is part of a unit that has posted seven shutouts, three in Patriot League play and yielded just 1.18 goals per game this season.
He ranks fourth on the team in minutes played among field players (1,143), and he logged three assists during the season, all coming in Patriot League games. His three assists in those conference games is tied for seventh in the League.
Campbell has compiled a 3.938 grade-point average as an engineering major at Loyola and was inducted to Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society. He has been on the Dean’s List in each of his semesters at the school and has logged two perfect 4.0 semester GPAs. Additionally, Campbell has twice been named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.
Carlsson has started every game for the Greyhounds in the midfield and earned All-Patriot League First Team honors earlier this week. He is tied for third in the Patriot League with eight assists and 0.47 assists per game.
The junior from Stockholm, Sweden, leads Loyola’s field players with 1,418 minutes played, and he has also been a key contributor on the defensive side of the pitch.
Carlsson, who has a 3.489 GPA as a communications major, has been a Dean’s List honoree at Loyola and was named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll last season, his first with the Greyhounds.
