Senior Nate Micklos, the leading scorer for the men’s soccer team this season, has been named College Division Academic All-American of the Year for men’s soccer by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Micklos is a native of Palatine, Ill. and a graduate of William Fremd High School. He currently holds a 3.75 cumulative grade point average and will graduate this month with a dual degree in political science and history and a minor in philosophy. This marks only the second time in the history of UR athletics that an athlete has been named the Academic All-American of the year. In 1997, women’s volleyball player Tanya Klebe was awarded the honor.While this is the highest honor he has received, Micklos is certainly no stranger to academic awards. In 2004 he was an NSCAA First Team Scholar All-American and was also named to ESPN The Magazine’s Academic All-American Second Team in that year. This year, he is a member of the magazine’s Academic All-American First Team. Micklos’ soccer statistics are just as impressive as his academic ones. He had 15 goals and 10 assists for 40 points on the season. His points per game (2.29) rank 10th in Division III, and his goals per game (0.88) rank 20th. For his career, Micklos has 57 goals, 26 assists and 140 points.Micklos was named University Athletic Association Player of the Year for the second year in a row this season. He has also been named First Team All-Association for three straight years.Moeller can be reached at
