WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross men's soccer head coach Ted Priestly has announced that junior Jordan Michael (Burnaby, British Columbia) and sophomore Pat McCann (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) have been named captains for the 2011 season. McCann follows in the footsteps of Kyle Miller, who was also a junior captain two seasons ago.
Michael will be a senior defender in the fall. He has made a total of 45 appearances, including 40 starts. He has scored one goal and three assists in his career and scored his first career goal in 2009. McCann will be a junior midfielder and has three assists in his two-year career, including a season-high two assists last season. He also started every game for the Crusaders as a sophomore.
"With Jordan and Pat, we have two outstanding players who have shown that they are ideally suited to lead our program as captains for the upcoming 2011 season," said Priestly. "Both players lead by example both on and off the field, and they are fully respected by our players, coaching staff and campus community. As players, students and as people, they are dedicated, driven and genuine. They exhibit the core philosophies of what we want to achieve at Holy Cross and their example is one that will help us create and maintain a culture of true commitment, teamwork and success."
Holy Cross recently completed its spring schedule and will announce the fall slate at a later date.
