Campos Named First-Team All-America By USCAA, Academic Honors For Others

Virginia Beach, Va. – For the second consecutive season, Dean College striker Felipe Campos has been named a United States Collegiate Athletic Association All-American (USCAA) it was announced earlier this month.

That honor highlights several awards handed out to the men's soccer program by the USCAA. In addition to his All-America selection, Campos joined both Tyler Medeiros (New Bedford, Mass.) and Brendan Pacheco (Fall River, Mass.) as USCAA National All-Academic Team honorees.

Campos' back-to-back first-team selection comes after he finished tied for the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) lead in goals scored and topped the conference in points (24) during a stellar sophomore campaign. He also earned NECC first-team honors for the second time after scoring at least one goal in each of his final five games and at one point during the season, he scored five straight Dean goals over a four-game stand.

In his illustrious career, which has amounted to 37 games, Campos has scored 32 goals, registered 12 assists and has been named league player of the week on six occasions.

For Pacheco and Medeiros, meanwhile, they join Campos on the all-academic team, which requires student-athletes to be of at least sophomore standing and have a minimum cumulative 3.50 GPA. Pacheco, who was the 2017 USCAA Men's Soccer Scholar-Athlete of the Year, makes his third appearance on the team, while Medeiros, appeared for the first time.

After a season of transition under new head coach Joe Campbell, the Bulldogs finished the season strong, winning three of their final four contests.
