DETROIT, Mich. -- Four-time United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) All-American, Three-time Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) All-Conference, Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) First Team All-Conference, and now a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) NAIA All-Mideast Region award.
The aforementioned accolades are those of Jordan Berry (Dearborn, Mich./Crestwood) – one of the most decorated student-athletes in the history of Marygrove College Athletics.
In a recent release by the NSCAA, Berry, along with five other WHAC men's soccer players, was tabbed a first team selection to the NAIA All-Mideast Region team.
"Jordan is a special player. It will be difficult for us to replace what he brought to the program," said men's soccer head coach Matt Johnson. "Despite our new status as a program, Jordan's career marks will most likely sit atop the Marygrove record books for years to come. I am glad to have coached him over the past four seasons and wish him luck in his future endeavors."
The award comes after a record-breaking season in which Berry totaled 23 goals and three assists on his way to a 49-point senior campaign. At season's end, Berry ranked fifth in the NAIA in goals (23), sixth in goals per game (1.15), and 11th in points per game (2.45).
A starter all four years with 71 games played, Berry amassed 70 goals and 11 assists en route to a career that culminated in 151 points.
