Morrow Named Conference Player of the Year

McDaniel junior back Scott Morrow has been selected as the Conference's Men's Soccer Player of the Year in balloting by the CC's 10 head coaches. Morrow was a conistent stopper on a stingy defense. He led the Green Terror defense to a Centennial-best 11 shutouts this season and his team to the top seed for this weekend's Conference championship tournament. Morrow was also a first-team selection last season.

The Terror also placed 3 other players on the first team. Senior forward Todd Knepper led the Terror with 7 assists on the season and also tallied 4 goals. This marks the second consecutive season that Knepper has been a first team selection. Senior Midfielder Thomas Kane was also a first team selection for McDaniel. Kane led the Terror in scoring with a team high 9 goals and added 3 assists for 21 points. Kane was also a first team selection in 2003 and the Centennial Conference Player of the Year that year as well. Senior goalie Andrew Wu was also named to the first team. Wu was outstanding in net all season recording an amazing 8 shutouts on the season and posted a 12-2-2 record.
