Additionally, Akpan was chosen as a second-team All-American by College Soccer News and was the only underclassman in the country to be chosen as a semi-finalist for the Herman Trophy, which is given to the best player in Division I men’s soccer. A pre-season All-American, Akpan finished the year with a team and league best 13 goals and nine assists for 35 points. Akpan’s 2.06 points per game was good enough to make him the second-leading scorer in the country. He is just one of nine Division I players to have notched a 10-game scoring streak.
Fucito was the only member of the team to be selected to the Academic All-Ivy first team. The dangerously fast forward finished the year with 11 goals and seven assists for 29 points. The marks were the best of his career. His 1.71 points per game was the ninth best in the nation. He and Akpan finished the year tied with six multi-point games.
