FORT MYERS, Fla. – The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) released its 2011 University Division Scholar All-South Region Team on Tuesday. Earning a 3.43 GPA as a dual major in business management and marketing, FGCU men’s soccer redshirt senior goalkeeper Adam Glick (Leola, Pa./Conestoga Valley HS) was recognized with an honorable mention by the media outlet.

Entering the 2011 campaign, Glick was named the frontrunner to repeat his 2010 Atlantic Sun Defensive Player of the Year and All-Conference first team selection in the preseason coaches’ balloting. Glick helped the Eagles to a 12-6-2 overall record, while successfully defending the regular season crown with a 7-1 league mark. In their first year of postseason eligibility, the Green and Blue earned the A-Sun Tournament’s top seed, and went on to a pair of one-goal victories to clinch the A-Sun Tournament Championship and receive the league’s automatic berth into the NCAA Championship in just the fifth year of the program.

As one of the 10 national finalists for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, Glick was also named to the A-Sun All-Conference first team for the second consecutive season, as well as, one of two Eagles on the inaugural A-Sun Academic All-Conference team. The Leola, Pa. native started 12 contests this season for the Eagles and ranked fourth in the A-Sun in both a goals against average (1.12) and save percentage (.759). FGCU’s all-time wins leader (32) totaled 44 saves on the season, including a pair of nine-save outings against Washington and at Stetson, to improve his program record to 260. The two-time team captain also posted three shutouts in 2011, good for fifth in the A-Sun, and earned the A-Sun Defensive Player of the Week Award for his efforts against Rhode Island in the 4-0 shutout. Glick was also selected as the Nike Portland Invitational Defensive MVP at the beginning of season, earning a pair of draws and totaling 10 saves through a pair of contests against host Portland and Washington.

The A-Sun had a total of eight student-athletes recognized among the Scholar All-South Region teams, including a pair of first time selections, one second team pick and five honorable mentions.

To be nominated, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale) throughout his or her career; start more than 50 percent of all games and be a significant contributor to the team; be nominated by an institution that is a current NSCAA College Services member; be a junior or above in academic standing at the current institution; be in his or her second year at the current school if he or she is a transfer student; and submit an official copy of a certified transcript.
