Sullivan Earns All-American, Joins Russo, Roth on All-Region


BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College senior men's soccer captain Danny Sullivan (Portsmouth, N.H.) has been named a first-team All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America for the second straight season. The NSCAA All-American teams were announced on Friday, as were All-New England honors. Sullivan was a first-team All-New England choice, while teammates Ethan Roth (W. Orange, N.J.) and Andrew Russo (Weymouth, Mass.) earned second and third-team All-Region, respectively.

Danny Sullivan, is a two-time first-team All-NESCAC, All-New England and All-American selection. An anchor in the Bowdoin backfield, Sullivan led a Polar Bear defense that allowed a mere 0.87 goals per game this season. The two-time captain started every game this season, scoring a goal and two assists. In addition, Sullivan was chosen and the only Division III player invited to Major League Soccer's Scouting Combine in January.

Senior captain Ethan Roth proved to be a leader for Bowdoin in the midfield this season. Roth scored once and added four assists this season, playing in every contest on the year. A first-time All-NESCAC and All-New England selection, he closes out his career with six total goals.

Junior Andrew Russo continued to impress and rise in the Polar Bear record books in 2004, earning his second straight first-team All-NESCAC selection and second All-New England nod. The midfielder/forward scored a team-high seven goals this season and added four assists. He currently has 28 career goals (tied for fourth all-time at Bowdoin) and has 12 career assists (tied-8th). In addition, his 68 career points are fourth at the school.
