Stephan Brossard & Josh Faga Named All-MAAC Second Team
EDISON, N.J. - The Marist men's soccer team had four players named to the All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Teams on Wednesday evening. Seniors Stephan Brossard (Port Washington, N.Y.) and Josh Faga (Rochester, N.Y.) were each named to the All-MAAC Second Team, while freshmen Cesar Ceja (Port Chester, N.Y.) and Simon Laugsand (Sortland, Norway) earned spots on the MAAC All-Rookie Team.
Brossard collected his fourth straight All-MAAC honor in recognition of his strong season as the Red Foxes' senior striker. In 14 games and 13 starts, Brossard compiled 19 points on seven goals and five assists. His point total was fourth in the MAAC, while his goal total was sixth and assist total seventh. He completed his four-year career with 70 appearances, 30 goals and 19 assists for 79 total points.
Faga is the second Red Fox to earn Second Team honors as he provided Marist with senior leadership at the central midfield position. A second team honoree in 2010, Faga finished his senior season with five points on a goal and three assists; he came into 2012 with no offensive stats at Marist. He was one of three Red Foxes to play and start in all 16 games this season.
The freshman duo of Ceja and Laugsand garnered spots on the MAAC All-Rookie Team. Coming over from Sortland, Norway, Laugsand immediately found his way into the starting lineup as a defender and appeared in each of the Red Foxes' 16 games. He finished with five points on two goals and an assist. Ceja, a starter in seven games, tallied two goals as a forward for Marist.
In the All-Academic portion of the awards banquet, Marist had three players earn honors: seniors Josh Faga (Rochester, N.Y.) and Anthony Rozmus (Hopewell Junction, N.Y.) and junior Nicolas Fedus (Briarwood, N.Y.). For Rozmus this is the third consecutive year being named to the team, while Faga and Fedus garnered the honor for his second straight.
To be eligible for the MAAC All-Academic Team, a student athlete must have completed two semesters at their institution and hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 on a 4.0 scale.
