The Boys ECNL is excited to announce the 2017-18 Boys ECNL All-America Team, supported by United Soccer Coaches, as well as the 2017-18 Boys ECNL Player of the Year Luke Kiley.
Thirty players were selected to the Boys ECNL All-America Team by the Boys ECNL All-America Committee, which included technical representatives from all 5 Boys ECNL conferences across the country. From this distinguished group of players, Luke Kiley, a forward from the U18/U19 ENPL National Championship team Ohio Premier, was named the Boys ECNL Player of the Year.
Kiley’s ability to score and consistently perform in big games in 2017-18 cemented his honor as Boys ECNL Player of the Year, as he helped lead Ohio Premier to this year’s U18/U19 ENPL National Championship.
“Luke Kiley is a prime-time player. As the stage gets bigger, so does Luke. His best performances over the last 3 years have always come on our biggest stages,” said Ohio Premier Boys ECNL U18/U19 head coach Travis Wall. “What I most respect most about his game is his ability to not let misses affect him. He’s always ready for the next play.”
The 2017-2018 Boys ECNL All-America Team includes players from every conference and 20 ECNL clubs:
“In a new platform, and on a big and new stage, these players stood tallest in the 2017-18 season, and their performances in the ECNL stood out to coaches all over the country,” said Boys ECNL President Christian Lavers. “These exceptional young players have a great future in the game, and we look forward to watching them continue to grow and shine in the Boys ECNL, ENPL, and beyond.”
Players selected to the ECNL All-America Team are automatically nominated for the United Soccer Coaches Youth All-America Team, which is released in the fall.
