Kansas City, Mo. -- University of Lynchburg senior Dylan McLaurin (Stafford, Va.) earned a first-team Scholar All-America honor from the United Soccer Coaches, the organization announced with its Division III dual-emphasis teams Monday afternoon.
The honor is his second Scholar All-America award; he was the first-team goalkeeper on the team as a junior as well.
A third-team All-American for the second-straight season, McLaurin was a first-team All-South Region and All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference selection. He also earned Academic All-District honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America.
A three-year starter in goal for the Hornets, McLaurin holds the program record for career goals-against average (0.57). He and the Lynchburg defense allowed just 10 goals this season as he led the ODAC with 11 shutouts.
The international relations major and Latin American studies minor holds a cumulative GPA of 3.62 and is also heavily involved in Lynchburg's Model United Nations efforts.
McLaurin and the Lynchburg's men's soccer team finished the season with a 13-2-2 record and an 8-1-1 mark in the ODAC, reaching as high as No. 5 in the D3soccer.com national rankings.
