IRVINE, Calif. — Sacramento State senior midfielder Paul Geyer was named to the preseason Big West all-conference team, it was announced by the league today.
Last season, Geyer was named second team all-Big West and was also an all-academic recipient for the second consecutive year. The Sacramento native was the only Hornet to start all 20 games last season and helped the team record four shutouts and a 1.35 goals against average as a holding midfielder. He also scored the team's first goal of the season, finding the net against CSU Bakersfield in the season opener. Geyer was a work horse for the team, leading Sacramento State with 1,810 minutes played and twice recorded 110-minute performances.
Originally from England, Geyer came to Sacramento as a 16-year old and completed his high school at Rio Americano. He earned a spot on the Big West all-freshman team following the 2014 season where he played in 15 games, starting 11. The next season, he claimed honorable mention all-Big West honors as a midfielder where he started all 17 games in which he appeared.
Along with the preseason all-conference team, the Big West announced its preseason coaches poll. Sacramento State was selected to finish fourth in the North Division. UC Santa Barbara was picked to finish first in the division and was followed by UC Davis and Cal Poly. CSUN was tabbed to finish first in the South Division.
The Hornets open their year with an exhibition game against Santa Clara on Thursday, Aug. 17. The team will start the regular season on Sunday, Aug. 20, against San Francisco at Hornet Field.
