Soccer may not get as much publicity as basketball, football or baseball, but I'd remiss not to share this good news about a University of Evansville freshman soccer player.

Simon Waever was recently named one of the top collegiate freshmen in the country. Not the city, not the Tri-State, but the whole country. Awesome news! And Waever didn't just "make" the list, he's in the top third, coming in at #33. He joins two other Indiana school athletes on the list, along with a player from Notre Dame and Butler. Not bad company at all!

This season Waever also earned all-region and all-conference honors. And the best news of all is that the Purple Aces get him for three more seasons!
