Four Blue Raiders earn 2020 NAIA Soccer All-America Honors

By Kyle Jackson

Lindsey Wilson men's soccer student-athletes Cyrus Harmon, David Ibrahimkadic and Rainer De Jesus were named to the 2020 NAIA All-America Second Team, while Neville Morgan was named in honorable mention, the national office announced on Thursday.

The three second-team honors push the program total to 79 NAIA All-American selections in the history of the program as Harmon, Ibrahimkadic and De Jesus pick up the first NAIA All-American honor of their careers. Morgan, who was named an NAIA All-American in 2019, was named an honorable mention this year pushing the program total to 27.


Harmon made things happen for the Blue Raider offense this season, leading the team with 12 goals in 17 games in his debut season. Harmon totaled 29 points on the season and scored four game-winning goals during the 2020 campaign earning him the MSC Player of the Year award.

Ibrahimkadic had his best season as a Blue Raider in his senior year, scoring a career-high six goals and three assists in 17 games while De Jesus provided two goals and four assists in his senior season.

Morgan was a force as usual on the wing in his senior season, leading the team with a career-high eight assists on the year which earned him a spot on the squad of USL League Two side Ocean City Nor'easters.

The NAIA All-America committee consists of the NAIA-Men's Soccer Coaches Association Executive Committee, the National Championship Games Committee and four men's soccer coaches. Each team - first, second and third - consists of 11 members and the honorable mention teams.

Overall, Missouri Valley and Central Methodist (Mo.) led all teams at the top with four honorees on the top three teams. Central Methodist and Oklahoma Wesleyan led all institutions with two, first-team selections. Luka Gluscevic of Missouri Valley was named the 2020 NAIA Player of the Year.

The 2020 Select Sport America-NAIA Men's Soccer National Coach of the Year will be announced later this spring.

Lindsey Wilson finished the season with an 11-4-2 overall record going 8-1-2 in Mid-South Conference play. The Blue Raiders made a 27th program appearance in the NAIA National Soccer Championships this season, making it to the first round of the competition.
