Max Grossenbacher ’16 Named NSCAA Scholar All-American

Max Grossenbacher '16 became just the third player in the history of Colorado College men's soccer to be named a Scholar All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. He joins Patrick McGinnis '04 and Brandon Ogilvie '13 as recipients of the organization's highest academic award.

The senior midfielder, who owns a 3.81 grade-point average as a biochemistry major and music minor, and McGinnis are the only Tigers to earn All-America and Scholar All-America honors from the organization in the same season.

Grossenbacher will be honored at the NSCAA's annual All-America Luncheon in Baltimore on Saturday, Jan. 16.

The men's soccer program also saw its tradition of academic excellence continue with a record five players earning a spot on the Scholar All-West Region Team.

Accompanying Grossenbacher on the all-region squad are defender Trevor Houghton '16 (International Political Economy), midfielder Nathan Andersen '17 (Political Science), midfielder Soren Frykholm '17 (Romance Languages), and defender Jack McCormick '17 (Economics).

To earn a spot on the Scholar All-America and All-Region teams, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.30 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale) throughout his career; start more than 50 percent of all games and be a significant contributor to the team.

Colorado College completed the 2015 season with a 14-3-3 overall record and finished second in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference with an 11-1-2 mark.
