ALL-REGION HONORS FOR THREE
McCall Adds to Resume

Senior Dan McCall of the Muhlenberg football team was a first-team selection to the D3football.com All-South Region team. He also was named Division III player of the year by the Brooks-Irvine Memorial Club of South Jersey.

The two honors add to an impressive list that includes Centennial Conference defensive player of the year, All-Centennial Conference first team and an invitation to the Aztec Bowl in Mexico.

In his first year as a linebacker, McCall led the CC with 7½ sacks and 14½ tackles for loss. He tied a school record by recovering four fumbles, two of which he returned for touchdowns, and also forced two fumbles, blocked two kicks, intercepted two passes and broke up six others.

The Mules’ all-time leader with 22½ sacks, McCall also earned first-team All-South Region honors in 2003.

TWO SOCCER PLAYERS SELECTED

Seniors Christopher King and Jose Ramirez of the Centennial Conference-champion Muhlenberg men’s soccer team were named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Mid-Atlantic Region first team.

King, a forward, led the Mules and the Centennial Conference in goals (13) and points (30). He had five game-winning goals, including one in the CC championship match against Gettysburg, and recorded at least one point in 12 of Muhlenberg’s 19 games.

King finished his career by scoring a goal in his final five games. A first-team All-CC choice for the first time in 2005, King totaled 53 points on 22 goals and nine assists for his career.

Ramirez earned first-team all-region honors for the second time in three Jose Ramirez years. The crafty central midfielder was second on the Mules with 16 points on five goals and six assists. Four of his five goals were game-winners, one a “golden goal” in overtime against Claremont, and he also assisted on two game-winning goals.

A three-time All-CC selection, Ramirez finished his career with 48 points on 19 goals and 10 assists.

This was only the second time in the last 10 years that Muhlenberg had two players on the all-region first team.
