NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Paul Afful of the St. Bonaventure University men's soccer team has been named to the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie team.
"I am very happy for Paul receiving such an award, and I am grateful for our team continuing to help our newer players acclimate to this level of soccer," said head coach Kwame Oduro. "Paul was an instrumental part of our progress this season, and we hope he continues to improve in his time here."
A mainstay on the pitch for coach Oduro during his first season, Afful was the only member of the Brown and White to start all 18 games. His 41 shots were also a team best.
The native of Takoradi, Ghana assisted the lone goal on Oct. 29 at NJIT as he served Nikko Richards on a back-heel pass.
The All-Rookie team was selected by voting of the league's coaches.
