Syracuse Men's Soccer: You Know You Had A Good Season When...

Julian Buescher seems to be rolling in the All American Honors and Miles Robinson and Hendrick Hilpert were named to some other Freshman All-American teams. Accolades for Buescher, as well as the young bucks that will be sticking around can't be a bad thing.

So I think this should be the end of the postseason honors recaps for the Syracuse Orange. Not because of a lack of quality, but because we're running out of awards to receive. I would say that it's a positive thing that we're still talking about awards being given out, this far past the season's end.

Previously, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America put out their postseason teams. We had Julian Buescher named to the second team. We also had a few folks make the All-ACC Teams. Now we're seeing some of the other main publications, Top Drawer Soccer and College Soccer News, putting out their All Americans/Best XI lists.

Sophomore midfield star Julian Buescher brought home some more hardware, being named as a first team performer in both the CSN All-American List and TDS Best XI. He adds to an impressive haul as a second team All-American by the NSCAA and first team All-ACC as well as ACC-Tournament and NCAA All-Tournament Teams. So he's pretty good.

We also had two freshman named to All-American teams. Both Miles Robinson, the centerback from Massachusetts and Hendrick Hilpert, the goalkeeper from Germany were named to the CSN All-Freshman Teams. Robinson was a first teamer, with Hilpert being named to the second team. Robinson also added a nod on the TDS Freshman Best XI first team list as well.

Robinson was a standout all year for the Orange, starting 25 games, being a menace on set pieces and helping anchor a very young but very talented defense. Hilpert started the final 16 games of the year and quickly rose to quality. His year goals against average of 0.78 would have been third in program history if it was over a full season. He combined with Austin Aviza for the #5 combined season in program history. I'd say that bodes well for the future of this defense.
