Kansas City, Mo. -- For the second-straight season, University of Lynchburg senior goalkeeper Dylan McLaurin (Stafford, Va.) earned a spot on the United Soccer Coaches Division III All-America third team, the organization announced Thursday evening.

McLaurin becomes the third Lynchburg men's soccer player to earn repeat All-America honors, joining Rusty Taylor (1966, '67) and Tom Emmons (1978, '79) on that exclusive list.

He was the only Old Dominion Athletic Conference player included on the teams.

McLaurin, a first-team All-South Region and All-ODAC honoree, helped the Lynchburg defense tie the program record for goals allowed in a season (10) this year, playing every minute of the year in the net and accruing a 13-2-2 record. He posted a career-high 11 shutouts, a mark that tied for sixth in Division III, and posted a 0.571 goals-against average, good enough for 19th nationally.

He was also voted Academic All-District by the College Sports Information Directors.

McLaurin finishes his career as Lynchburg's all-time leader in goals-against average and second in program history in shutouts with 28. He has three of the Hornets' top six seasons in goals-against average and boasts a career save percentage of .827.
