TopDrawerSoccer.com is increasingly seen as the go to site for astute, educated information on the world of college soccer. So it makes the whole Nor’easters organization incredibly proud to see our players making their way onto the top player lists that the site has become famous for.
Our goalkeeper Tyler Miller was on the most prestigious ‘Underclass Top 100’ as the 52nd best underclassman in the whole of US College soccer. This is an outstanding achievement to a young man and talented player who has been to Europe with the ODP program last summer and trained with DC United in the off-season. Miller has a great future ahead of him and the Nor’easters are looking forward to seeing his career continue to find new heights.
Top Drawer Soccer also look at the ‘Conference Top 20’, the best 20 players per conference regardless of their age. Ocean City Nor’easters are proud to boast 4 players in the Top 20. Unsurprisingly, Tyler Miller is number 5 in the Big Ten Conference with his performances for Northwestern this Fall making 21 saves and 4 clean sheets. Another number 5 ranked player is our top scorer for 2012, Zoncher Dennis of Mount St. Mary’s. He is highly recognized in the NEC and is looking to push on and add to his solitary goal in 8 games.
Exciting winger Markhus ‘Duke’ Lacroix is ranked as the 8th best player in the Ivy League conference and this ranking will only rise after some magnificent performances for University of Pensylvania. Lacroix has converted 5 goals and made 3 assists in his first 8 games of the 2012 season. A remarkable return from a remarkable player. Jason Plumhoff is also making waves in the Atlantic 10 Conference helping LaSalle to a 5-2-2 record so far. With 3 goals and 2 assists from midfield for the Explorers Plumhoff is looking to copy former LaSalle standout Ryan Richter and make that transition from college to the pro game.
Ocean City Nor’easters are very proud of the achievements of our players and will continue to highlight them as we look forward to a bright and exciting 2013. Visit www.TopDrawerSoccer.com for all the details.
