Three Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference players were named first team All-Americans, and a total of seven players from the conference made it on to one of the three teams.

Midfielders Chike Sullivan, from Colorado School of Mines, and Steven Emory, from Metro State College of Denver, along with Mines forward Tesho Akindele made the first team.

Regis University defender Nathan Kafer picked up second team honors, while Mines ‘keeper Manville Strand, Regis defender Gary Cole and Fort Lewis College defender Fabian Kling made the third team.

A trio of players earned the All‐America recognition for a second time in their careers with the Monday announcement of the 2010 NSCAA/Performance Subaru NCAA Men’s Division II All‐America Team. Steven Beattie (Northern Kentucky/Skerries, Ireland), Kyle Ciliento (Grand Canyon/Phoenix, Ariz.) and Rob Vincent (University of Charleston/Liverpool, England) gained the honor for the second time.

Colorado School of Mines and Franklin Pierce University each placed three players on the squad, while Cal State San Bernardino, Regis University and Rollins College each had two representatives.

The players will be honored at the annual All‐America Luncheon, to be held at the Hilton Baltimore Hotel on Saturday, Jan. 15, as part of the 2011 NSCAA Convention.
