Fabian and Okolie Earn All-America Honors

Complete All-America Team

LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall's Wyatt Fabian and Ugo Okolie were named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Division III All-America Third Team.

Each player garnered the distinction for the first time in their careers. It marks the 11th and 12th times a Diplomat landed on the list and just the third time in the history of the program that F&M had two players honored with the award. 

Fabian (Sinking Spring, Pa. / Hill School) adds his fourth postseason honor after being named to the All-Mid Atlantic Region and All-Centennial Conference (CC) First Teams, as well as an ECAC All-Star this offseason. 

The junior defender was a stalwart on the backline after starting in all of the Diplomats 23 contests. He accumulated a goal and four assists on the year while anchoring a defensive unit that held the second-lowest goals against average mark in the conference at 0.79. 

Okolie (Lagos, Nigeria / Mercersburg Academy) also landed on the All-Region First Team for the second straight year after also being named All-CC earlier in the month. 

The sophomore forward led the team with nine assists, which were good for the second most in the Conference and tied for fourth most in program single-season history. He also tallied three goals on the year to total 15 points, a number that ranked third on the Diplomats. 

The Diplomats (15-4-4) become one of just five teams in the nation to appear in four-straight NCAA Sweet 16's while advancing to the program's first Elite Eight appearance since 2013.
