Marcus Voss A Soccer All-American

Hope College junior Marcus Voss of Holland (Zeeland HS) has been voted an NCAA Division III soccer All-American.

Voss was voted the All-American third team goalkeeper by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

Voss is the seventh Hope men's soccer player to achieve All-America distinction, the first since 1996. He also becomes the third Hope goalkeeper to be honored. Assistant Hope coach Lee Schopp was a two-time All-American for the Flying Dutchmen in 1992 and 1993. Also honored as a goalkeeper was Aaron Angeli in 1995.

The Flying Dutchmen posted a 16-3-1 record this year tying a Hope single season record for shutouts (13). Voss allowed only 13 goals in 20 games this season. He has 28 career shutouts and has allowed just 41 goals over 60 collegiate games.

Co-captain of this year's team, he is a two-time Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) first team honoree.

Joining Hope's trio of goalkeeper honorees have been All-Americans Jeff Utzinger (1992), Blake Richards (1994), John Conlon (1995) and Sean Toohey (1996). Voss is the only MIAA men's soccer player to achieve All-America honors this season. Two Albion players, Stacey Supanich and Elizabeth Hermiller, were named women's soccer All-Americans.
