Oct. 16, 2013
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Ten NCAA® men's soccer student-athletes, including Indiana University senior midfielder A.J. Corrado, who excel both on and off the field were selected as finalists today for the 2013 Senior CLASS Award® in collegiate soccer.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence - community, classroom, character and competition. A complete list of finalists follows this release.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School ®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
Corrado has started all 13 matches for Indiana this season, contributing two goals and four assists while taking 17 shots.
The finalists were chosen by a media committee from the list of 30 men's candidates and 30 women's candidates announced in August. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote on the Senior CLASS Award website through November 25. Fan votes will be combined with media and Division I head coaches' votes to determine the winner. The Senior CLASS Award winners will be announced during the 2013 NCAA Men's and Women's College Cup® championships in December. To vote visit SeniorCLASSAward.com.
