Pack's Martinet named academic all-American
PUEBLO, Colo. - CSU-Pueblo senior midfielder Trevor Martinet (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.) was named the first men's soccer academic all-American in school history Wednesday, earning second-team honors on the ESPN The Magazine/College Sports Information Directors of America Academic all-American team.
In 19 games this season, Martinet scored three goals and recorded four assists for a total of 10 points, fourth most on the ThunderWolves. In his career, Martinet is ranked 10th all-time in school history in both points and assists. He played his final game in a ThunderWolf uniform in the RMAC semifinals against Fort Lewis Nov. 7.
Martinet becomes the first CSU-Pueblo men's soccer player to receive the all-American academic honor. He becomes the first ThunderWolf athlete in any sport since 2003 to receive the honor.
Remarkably, Martinet is just the second Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference men's soccer player to have ever received an academic all-American honor. In 2007, Metro State's Phillip Owen received third-team honors. Martinet's second-team distinction makes him the most highly-ranked RMAC men's soccer academic all-American in RMAC history.
