Men's Soccer - Fri, Dec. 6, 2013

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Two members of Marygrove's men's soccer team were honored for their work in the classroom Friday (Dec. 6) by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) after being named Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes. The pair of Mustangs, Ahmed Almosawi (Dearborn, Mich./American Muslim Academy) and Alex Cabildo (Westland, Mich./John Glenn), joined a list of 355 men's soccer student-athletes to be honored with the national award.

In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.

The postseason announcement marks the second Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete award for Almosawi, a senior, while Cabildo worked his way on the list in his first year of eligibility. The pair of outstanding student-athletes have been instrumental in the success of the men's soccer program anchored by fifth year head coach Matt Johnson.

In total, Almosawi and Cabildo have appeared in a combined 111 games over the course of their careers at Marygrove. Almosawi, primarily a defender, tallied five goals and seven assists in his four seasons with the Green & Gold. Cabildo has one point in a two-year career out of the midfield for the Mustangs.
