ECNL College Impact | The Pac-12 Conference
RICHMOND, VA (December 1, 2015) – The Elite Clubs National League College Impact series began last season with a look at how the ECNL has impacted college soccer across the country.
Across soccer, the “ECNL player” has become the epitome of the next generation collegiate soccer player. The ECNL College Impact can be measured by the number of ECNL alumni that have moved on to collegiate soccer, and highlights the ECNL’s effect on collegiate athletic conferences all over the United States. This week, the ECNL examines the Pac-12 Conference, where in just over 6 years, ECNL alums have become more than 67% of the entire conference.
The Pac-12 Conference stretches the length of the West Coast, from Arizona to Washington. The Pac-12 includes the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, University of California, University of Colorado, University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Stanford University, UCLA, USC, University of Utah, University of Washington, and Washington State University.
The ECNL College Impact for the Pac-12 includes all players currently active on Pac-12 rosters:
- 224 ECNL alumni are currently playing in the Pac-12 Conference, nearly 67% of the players in the entire conference.
- 10 of the 11 players from the Pac-12 First Team are ECNL alumni, making up more than 90% of the award winners.
- 73% of players from the Pac-12 Second Team are ECNL alumni.
- The Pac-12 Player of the Year (Arielle Ship), Pac-12 Freshman of the Year (Alana Cook), Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year (Kayla Mills) and Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Year (Jane Campbell) are ECNL alums.
