RICHMOND, VA (July 10, 2018) – Based on their performances throughout the Boys ECNL season, the inaugural Boys ECNL / United Soccer Coaches All-Conference Teams and Conference Players of the Year have been selected for the 2017-2018 season.

Players were chosen through a recommendation and voting process involving representatives from every club in each conference. Each All-Conference team is comprised of 11 players at each age group from U15 through U18/U19. In addition, a Conference Player of the Year was chosen at each age group. All players selected to the Boys ECNL / United Soccer Coaches All-Conference teams will be eligible for the Boys ECNL / United Soccer Coaches All-American Team to be announced later this summer.

“There was so much to celebrate in the first year of the league, and at the heart of it all is the performance of the players on a national platform with fantastic competition,” said Boys ECNL President Christian Lavers.  “We are excited to recognize and honor the exceptional players that stood out in their teams all year, and who helped make the league’s inaugural season so memorable.”
