Two Colonials Named All-Americans
Feb. 8, 2005
NEW YORK CITY, NY - George Washington junior Jon Allen and sophomore Joseph Siegel each were selected as All-Americans by the Jewish Sports Review in its January/February issue. Allen was rewarded with first-team honors, while Siegel was an honorable mention choice.
Allen, a forward, started 19 games for GW in 2004 before his season was cut short due to injury. He still finished second on the team with 17 points and was tied for the team-lead with six goals.
Siegel, who also plays up front, started 13 contests and finished the year with nine points on four goals and one assist. He was named to the DC College Cup All-Tournament Team on Sept. 6 and was named the Atlantic 10 Player of the Week on Nov. 8, following his five-point performance in GW's victory at Richmond on Nov. 6.
They are the first GW men's soccer players to be named All-Americans by the publication since Michael Goldman in 2001-02.
The Colonials won the Atlantic 10 Championship in 2004 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the second time in program history.
