The Northwood University men's soccer goalkeeper Johannes Sterobo (Odense, Denmark / Tornbjerg) earned a spot on the 2014 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Men's Soccer First Team.
CoSIDA members in each of the eight geographic districts selected this year's All-District teams. All First-team Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month. These honorees are recognized as the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Sterobo started every game for the last two seasons for the Timberwolves and finished this year with a 12-3-1 (10-3-1 GLIAC) record. He was two-time GLIAC Defensive Player of the Week (Oct. 14, Oct. 28) and owns the Northwood school record for career goals against average (1.09) and career shutouts (14). Sterobo also holds the NU record for wins in a season (12) and a career (26), as well as the two highest totals for shutouts in a season (seven, five) at NU. He set the Northwood record for goals against average this season (0.80) and has led NU to being one of the top teams in the GLIAC and the Midwest Region.
The Timberwolves will compete in the 2014 GLIAC Tournament in Tiffin, Ohio this weekend. Northwood has the #2 seed and will face third seeded Lake Erie in the semi-finals on Friday (November 7) at 10 a.m. The winner of that match will take on either top-seeded Tiffin or fourth seeded Saginaw Valley on Sunday (November 9).
