MADISON, N.J. – In a season full of accolades, Aidan Cserhat of the Drew University men's soccer team received perhaps the most significant one on Thursday night. He was named First Team All-American by the United Soccer Coaches, becoming just the second player in program history to earn that distinction, joining Peter Boyer (2003).
Cserhat scored 20 goals this season, fifth-most in the nation, and he ranks seventh nationally with 45 points. His 20 goals set a new single-season record in the Landmark, which was previously held by former Drew men's soccer player Greg Zizik in 2008 with 16. His 45 points were also a new single-season record, also held by Zizik who totaled 41.
He recorded the Rangers' first two goals in the 3-1 victory over Elizabethtown in the Landmark Conference championship game, as Drew earned its first conference title in 10 years. Cserhat had a nine-game goal-scoring streak from Sept. 10-Oct. 7 and tallied four game-winners. He notched five multi-goal efforts, including a hat trick at FDU-Florham on Sept. 6. Cserhat twice contributed all of Drew's scoring in a contest.
The Landmark Conference Offensive Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Tournament MVP, Cserhat was also chosen as the ECAC Rookie of the Year. In addition, he was previously selected to the All-Landmark, All-ECAC and All-Mid-Atlantic Region First Teams.
