Fort Hays State’s Tanner Brock was named to the Daktronics Men’s Soccer All-America Third Team for 2014, announced Wednesday (Dec. 3) by the organization.
Brock, the 2014 MIAA Player of the Year, tied for the team lead in points (18), scoring six goals and tallying six assists in 19 starts (20 games played) this year. Brock played 1,673 minutes in the midfield for the Tigers, helping lead the team towards a NCAA Quarterfinals appearance, earning the program’s third straight NCAA Tournament berth in just the fourth year of existence. From Winfield, Kan., the senior hit three game winners this season, including a lone goal in FHSU’s shutout victory over West Texas A&M and a golden goal against MIAA opponent Upper Iowa. Brock is a three-time Daktronics All-Central Region First Team and All-MIAA First Team selection as well (2012, 2013 and 2014). Brock finished the year tied for second in the conference in points and tied for third in assists.
