GW Men's Soccer's Adewole, Ranalli Earn Atlantic 10 Postseason Honors
Adewole Named to All-Rookie Team; Ranalli Tabbed to All-Academic Squad
Nov. 13, 2013
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington freshman Tobi Adewole was named to the Atlantic 10 Men's Soccer All-Rookie Team, and senior Tyler Ranalli was voted to the All-Academic Team the league announced on Wednesday.
A two-time A-10 Rookie of the Week, Adewole started 13 of the 15 games in which he played and tallied three points on a goal and an assist. A native of Ashton, Md., Adewole was a key member of the Colonials' defense and played 1,144 minutes, most among GW freshmen and fourth-most on the team. He scored his first career goal with just 43 seconds left in regulation at Rhode Island, then recorded the assist on the game-winner in the fifth minute of double-overtime.
Adewole is the 12th Colonial to earn All-Rookie accolades since the Atlantic 10 began honoring freshmen in 2000. GW has had at least one honoree in 10 of the last 13 seasons, most recently Matthew Scott in 2011.
Ranalli was named to the Capital One Academic All District First Team two weeks ago. The two-time team captain posted career highs with six goals and 15 points in his senior season, including one of two hat tricks in the league this season when he scored three goals and seven points against VMI on Sept. 14. He finished his career with 10 goals and five assists for 25 points. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Ranalli boasts a 3.69 grade-point average as a finance major and has been recognized on the A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll in five of his six collegiate semesters.
Ranalli is the first Colonial to garner All-Academic honors since Greg McKay and Thomas Stuber in 2007.
GW finished its season with a 5-10-2 overall record and a 2-4-2 mark in Atlantic 10 play.
