DEKALB, Ill. – Junior Isaac Kannah (Plymouth, Minn./Prairie Seeds Academy) of the Northern Illinois University men’s soccer team was named to the All-Mid American Conference second team, announced by the league office on Friday. The all-conference teams are selected by a vote of the MAC head coaches.

Kannah led NIU this season with six goals and 13 points while playing in all 18 matches, including 17 starts. He recorded a team-best 46 total shots, including 14 on goal. The six goals was a career-best for the junior who has 10 career goals in 58 career games played.

Earlier this season, the Plymouth, Minn., native earned all-tournament honors at both the NIU adidas Invitational and the Northwestern Lakeside Classic. On October 28, Kannah was named the MAC Player of the Week after scoring three goals in a pair of matches against Eastern Illinois and Akron.

The All-MAC Second Team honors mark the second time Kannah has received all-conference recognition in his NIU career. Kannah was also named to the All-MAC Second Team as a freshman in 2011.
