Crew and Larentowicz Named NSCAA/adidas Division I Soccer All-Americans
Dec. 15, 2003
Brown senior forward Adom Crew (Columbia, MD) and junior defender Jeff Larentowicz (West Chester, PA) were selected to the NSCAA/adidas NCAA Division I All-America Team. Crew was named to the First Team while Larentowicz was a Second Team selection. The two become the 21st and 22nd players in Brown men's soccer history to earn All-America status. It was the seventh time in school history Brown has had two or more players selected to the team in the same year.
Crew's selection to the First Team caps off a brilliant career for the Bears' captain. After going down with a season-ending injury just eight games into the 2002 season, Crew bounced back to lead Brown to the Ivy League Title this past season. He captured the league's scoring title with 10 goals and two assists for 22 points and was named the Ivy Player of the Year. He was also a First Team All-Ivy and First Team All-New England selection. Crew earned Academic All-America status as well, as he was named to the National Third Team. He leaves Brown as its 10th all-time leading scorer with 25 goals.
Larentowicz backboned a tough Brown defense, which allowed just two goals, both penalty kicks, in league play for the 2003 season. Overall, the team recorded eight shutouts, including five in Ivy play. Larentowicz finished the year tied for third on the team in scoring with two goals and three assists for seven points. He was a First Team All-Ivy and First Team All-New England selection for the year as well.
Crew and Larentowicz will be recognized at the NSCAA All-America Luncheon on Jan. 17, 2004. The luncheon is part of the 57th Annual NSCAA Convention, which will be held Jan. 14-18, 2004, at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C.
