Lawal Highlights A-10 Men's Soccer Honors
Three Colonials honored by conference Wednesday
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington's Christian Lawal was named to the Atlantic 10 Men's Soccer All-Conference First-Team, leading three Colonials who received recognition from the conference Wednesday.
Regardless of where he's lined up, Lawal has been a key piece for GW over the past four years. The captain from England settled in at center back this fall and helped the Colonials post six shutouts, including four in A-10 play, and earn a return to the conference championship.
Lawal started all 18 games and logged 1,548 minutes, which were the most among GW field players. The versatile senior tied for the team lead with three assists and also added a goal to finish with five points. He closed his decorated career with 30 points.
Lawal claimed A-10 honors for the second time in his career, following up a second-team nod as a forward in 2015. It was the third straight season GW has been represented on the All-Conference First Team after Garrett Heine made it in both 2015 and 2016.
Haynes Brown quickly emerged as a potent offensive threat, posting a team-high 14 points on six goals and two assists in 13 games. His 1.08 points per game ranked ninth in the A-10.
Haynes Brown scored in three straight games two different times this season, closing the second run with a game-winning goal in overtime to beat George Mason, 1-0, on Oct. 4. The freshman from England also tallied a goal and an assist in a nonconference win at Navy on Sept. 13.
He's the first Colonial to make the All-Rookie Team since Tobi Adewole in 2013.
Höfs anchored GW's defense in net, posting 93 saves to lead the Atlantic 10. His six clean sheets pushed his career total to 17, and his .782 save percentage ranked fourth in the conference.
In the classroom, Höfs owns a 3.81 cumulative grade point average as a Finance and Mathematics major. He's been named to both the A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll and GW Athletics Academic Dean's List in each of his first four semesters on campus.
GW finished the season at 9-7-2 with a 6-2 mark in A-10 play. The Colonials wrapped up last Saturday with a 1-0 loss to Rhode Island in the quarterfinals of the conference championship.
