The sophomore is the first player in program history to earn the award.Â By virtue of his selection, Lewis is eligible for selection to the Capital One Academic All-America team.
â€śItâ€™s a great honor for a very deserving young man,â€ť said Ancilla College menâ€™s soccer coach James Drzewiecki.Â â€śSince Iâ€™ve been here, no one player has excelled so thoroughly on and off the field as Horraine has.Â Heâ€™s a shining example of what a student-athlete should be.â€ť
The award is yet another in a list of accolades that have been given to the Hopewell, Jamaica native this year.
Lewis captained Ancilla College to a 9-7-1 record in 2011, earning MCCAA all-conference and NJCAA Region 12 first team all-region honors for his efforts.
He currently majors in Business Administration.
The Capital One Academic All-District and All-America teams are presented in affiliation with CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America).
To be nominated, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at his or her current institution.
