Tolle Staffanson Named Men's Soccer 2010 Player of the Year
Staffanson started in 16 of the team's 17 contests and managed to accumulate 1449 total minutes, ranking third-most on the team. His on-field performance was recognized by the Northeast Conference, as he was named to the 2010 Second Team All-NEC, his first-career All-NEC selection. He started in 75 games throughout his career, which was the most among any player on the active roster during the 2010 season.
Soubrier earned his second-career All-NEC selection, as he accompanied Staffanson on the Second Team. He finished the 2010 season tied for second on the team with nine points on two goals and five assists. The Aurignac native finished his career with six goals and eight assists, while making 69 starts for the Bobcats.
The two defenders paired up one last time when they were invited to play in the New England Intercollegiate Soccer League's All-Star Game, which took place on November 28, 2010 at Harvard University. Soubrier was also honored two weeks later on December 12, 2010 with a Third Team All-North Atlantic Region selection.
Uchoa played in eight games throughout the season and earned his first-ever Academic Player of the Year award. The senior netted a goal and two assists during his career at Quinnipiac.
Strain-Goode started in all 17 games during the season and logged the most minutes (1577) of anyone on the team. With the departure of Staffanson and Soubrier, he will look to become a focal point of the defense for the 2011 fall season.
