James, Rosenfeld and Bishop Garner 2013 ECAC Division III South Men's Soccer Top Accolades
CENTERVILLE, Mass. — The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) announced its 2013 Division III South Men’s Soccer All-Stars today. Bethany College senior Arkangelo James (Pittsburgh, Pa.) earned Offensive Player of the Year honors, while Franklin & Marhsall College junior David Rosenfeld (Narberth, Pa.) was elected the Defensive Player of the Year and Cabrini College freshman A.J. Bishop (Macungie, Pa.) was named Rookie of the Year. The voting was completed by head coaches within the ECAC Division III South Men’s Soccer membership.
In his final season for the Bison, James netted 18 goals and collected eight assists for a career high 44 points. He led the President’s Athletic Conference (PAC) in every major offensive category and was named the PAC Player of the Year for the second straight season and an All-PAC First Team selection for the fourth time. Additionally, James was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Great Lakes Region First Team, marking the fourth consecutive year he took home regional honors (Third Team in 2012, 2011 and Second Team in 2010). He graduates from Bethany tied for second in school history in career goals (66) and third in points (156).
Rosenfeld keyed a Franklin & Marshall defensive corps that ranked No. 10 in NCAA Division III Soccer in shutout percentage (0.57) and No. 31 in goals against average (0.71). He became just the fifth defender in history to be named the Centennial Conference (CC) Player of the Year and earned a spot on the All-CC First Team. Rosenfeld and his Diplomat teammates allowed the fewest goals in the CC and led the nation with eight consecutive shutouts to begin the season. For his efforts, Rosenfeld was selected to the NSCAA Division III Men’s All-Mid-Atlantic Region First Team.
Bishop is the 2013 ECAC Division III South Men’s Soccer Rookie of the Year after finishing the season ranked second in the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) with 10 goals and 23 points. He was the only first-year player named to the All-CSAC First Team and netted four game-winning goals this season. Bishop accounted for six of the Cavaliers’ 10 goals scored in conference play in 2013 and helped lead Cabrini to an appearance in the CSAC Semifinals.
