Jeremy Reid: September 2011 Archives
Drew Jeskey, a member of the NIU men's soccer team from 2005-08, was named to the 2011 Brisbane Select Team while playing professionally in Australia. Jeskey is one of four players from the Wolves FC club to be named to the 11-player Select Team, which is the equivalent to an All-Star team in American sports. Wolves FC will play Rochedale Rovers in the Brisbane Premier League Grand Final on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Says College Soccer News about the Huskies as they give a "Lightning Round" look at this week's national poll. College Soccer News believes that NIU is "a team that is going to win a lot of games before the season is over." The Huskies are 26th in this week's College Soccer News poll. In other polls, NIU comes in at number 20 by the NSCAA and number 24 according to both Soccer America and Soccer Times.
As of today, Sept. 15, NCAA rules allow college basketball teams to begin full team workouts for up to two hours per week. NIU head coach Mark Montgomery wasted little time in getting the Huskies on the floor, putting his squad through a workout at 6:15 a.m. this morning. The first official day of practice might be 29 days away, and the regular season opener at Purdue 57 days away, but the Huskies are already hard at work preparing for the season.
Just as college football has two different top-25 polls, the college soccer world also has a number of different polls ranking the top teams in the country. After a 5-0 start to the season, the Huskies appear in all four polls released as of Tuesday. In the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and Soccer America polls, the Huskies come in at number 13. In other polls, the Huskies check in at 25th according to Soccer Times and 26th in the College Soccer News rankings.
