Soccer Players Named All Americans

January 8, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer players Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) and Michael Raftu (Marte Valle H.S./Manhattan) have been named All Americans by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Both were named to the 2012 NSCAA/Continental Tire Junior College Men’s Division III All America second team.

Streb, a freshman defender, was one of nine first-year players chosen among the 24 honored between first and second team. He started all 19 games for a defense that posted six shutouts while allowing an average of just 1.42 goals per game for the season. Streb also scored six goals for the Panthers.

Raftu, a sophomore forward, was among the national scoring leaders. He finished third in the NJCAA in goals scored (24) and fourth in total points (56). A transfer into the Panthers program for his sophomore year, Raftu left his mark in the Panther record book. He tied the College's record for most points and most goals in a season and his goal total was the third most for a career, despite playing just one season in Dryden.

This marks the third-straight year at least one Tompkins Cortland men’s soccer player has been named an All American, and the fifth time in the last six years.
