JOE ENOCHS SELECTED TO U.S. NATIONAL SOCCER TEAM
SACRAMENTO, Calif.-- Former men's soccer player Joe Enochs was
selected as one of 33 players that will compete for the U.S. National
Team on Thursday, June 7, in Columbus, Ohio, against Ecuador. A
midfielder with the Hornets from 1989-92, Enochs becomes the first
player in school history to reach the national level of competition.
Enochs is attempting to make the World Cup qualifying team that will
compete against Jamaica on Friday, June 15, and in Boston, Mass., on
Wednesday, June 20, against Trinidad at Foxboro Stadium.
Enochs, who has played professionally in Germany for the last eight
years, was a member of the first Hornet Div. I squad in 1991. The
Petaluma, Calif., native also led the Hornet men's soccer team to its
best Div. I record in program history with a 10-5-3 mark in 1992.
In his Hornet career, Enochs recorded nine goals, 15 assists and 32
points while starting all 71 games for head coach Michael
Linenberger. He also became the first men's soccer player to receive
postseason honors in the Div. I-era when he was named second team
All-Far West Region as a junior in 1991.
