A day before the GW men's soccer team kicks off its season at LIU Brooklyn, senior Seth Rudolph earned a pair of preseason honors from two separate soccer websites, as he was named to the Atlantic 10 Preseason All-Conference First Team by College Sports Madness, and he was tabbed the No. 4 Player to Watch in the Atlantic 10 by Top Drawer Soccer.
A 2011 A-10 First-Team All-Conference selection, Rudolph ranked fifth in the league with eight goals last season, and he added three assists for 19 points. Rudolph, who has scored 18 goals in the last two seasons and 22 in his career, needs just five goals and eight points to join GW's all-time top-10 list in both categories.
Rudolph and the Colonials host the Blackbirds on Friday at 4 p.m. at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus. Follow along with Gametracker or @GWMensSoccer on Twitter, or watch live on GW All-Access.
