Remick Named an All-American by NSCAA
Providence, R.I. - Brown men's soccer senior defender Dylan Remick was named a 2012 NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division I Second Team All-American as announced by the association on Friday afternoon. The last men's soccer player to earn All-American honors was Jeff Larentowicz '05, a current midfielder for the Colorado Rapids, who was named to the team in 2004.
"I am thrilled that Dylan (Remick) has been named an NSCAA All-American," said Head Coach Patrick Laughlin. "His play both in attack and defense during his four years at Brown has been a major part of our success. This year he performed at an incredibly high level throughout the season. This is a well-earned honor."
Remick earned his third consecutive first team All-Ivy nod this season, including back-to-back seasons as a unanimous selection. He was also awarded CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American honors and was named a 2012 New England Intercollegiate Soccer (NEISL) All-Star. Remick started in 18 games and combined for 11 points on two goals and a team-high seven assists. He earned All-Tournament Team honors at the Brown Soccer Classic and was the Tournament MVP at the Ocean State Classic for his outstanding defensive efforts.
The Bears ended the regular season with a 12-2-3 record and finished 4-1-2 in the Ivy League to place third in the standings. Brown was riding a 12-game unbeaten streak into their final game of the season at Dartmouth. Receiving an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, the Bears made their 27th overall appearance and their seventh trip in the last eight years.
In the first round, Brown defeated the Drexel Dragons, 2-0, and then subsequently fell, 2-1, to No. 2 Maryland, who eventually lost in the semifinals to No. 3 Georgetown in penalty kicks. The Bears ended the year at 13-3-3, as Remick helped the back line to 11 shutouts for a shutout percentage that ranked among the top in the country.
