Foskett, Miller Garner CoSIDA / ESPN Academic All-America Accolades
Nov. 18, 2010
Navy was the lone Patriot League school represented on the three University division teams and was one of six teams (South Carolina, Butler, St. Francis (Pa.), Akron, Navy and Stanford) to have two players mentioned. Foskett and Miller are Navy's first Academic-All American since Evan Barnes earned third-team honors in 2007. It marks the first time that Navy has had two players win Academic All-American honors in the same year, and the pair are only the third and fourth recipients of the honor (Donald Field in 1996, 1997; Evan Barnes in 2007).
Foskett, a senior defenseman from Manassas, Va., was named to the Academic All-American second team after compiling a 3.73 cumulative GPA in electrical engineering through last year's spring semester. Foskett started all 16 games as a defenseman for the Midshipmen, which finished the 2010 season with a 7-5-4 overall record. Foskett ranked tied for third on the team in assists with two and started all 35 games over the last two seasons. For his career, he played in 41 games, starting the last 35 contests. He was named to the 2010 Navy / UMBC Kickoff Classic All-Tournament team and was selected as the Patriot League's Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 27. He was previously named to the CoSIDA / ESPN Academic All-District II first-team and the Patriot League All-Academic men's soccer team.
Akron's Kofi Sarkodie was named the CoSIDA / ESPN Academic All-American Player of the Year.
