HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac men's soccer junior forward Philip Suprise (Milwaukee, Wisc.) has been named to the 2011 National Soccer Coaches Association Of America (NSCAA) All-North Atlantic Second Team, as announced on Friday, Dec. 9.

The NSCAA honors Suprise for the second time in his career, following a season in which he led the squad in points for the third-consecutive season, accumulating 14 points on five goals and four assists. Suprise earns his second post-season accolade of 2011, as he was previously named to the Men's Soccer All-Northeast Conference First Team on Thursday, Nov. 10 at the annual pre-tournament banquet.

The Milwaukee native was one of the top players in the conference all season, and finished the year ranked tied for fifth in the NEC in points per game (.88), tied for sixth in total points, and tied for eighth in goals. He earned his first-career NEC Player of the Week honors on Monday, Oct. 10 following a four-point weekend in which he scored the game-tying goals in both contests against Saint Francis (Pa.) and Robert Morris, leading the team to consecutive 2-1 victories.

Suprise enters his senior season with 41 career points, coming on 17 goals and seven assists over exactly 50 career games played.
