Spartanburg, S.C. – In what has already been a career year filled with a plethora of individual honors, USC Upstate standout midfielder Marvin Schmiege has been named a second team all-region selection in the Southeast Region by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
Schmiege, a junior from Berlin, Germany, is the first Upstate men’s soccer player to earn all-region honors since the university transitioned its athletic program from NCAA Division II to Division I in 2007-08. He is also the first all-region honoree in the program since 2006. He is one of nine players from the A-Sun to earn all-region honors on either the first, second or third teams.
“Marvin continues to receive awards that reflect the quality of student-athlete he is,” said Upstate head coach Greg Hooks. “He has been honored for his successes on the field and in the classroom. The all-region selection is a tremendous honor for him while it places him in an elite group of players competing at the highest level of college soccer. I am very proud of him for earning this distinction.”
