McNamara Named All-American by CollegeSoccerNews.com
By: Clemson Athletic Communications  
Release:  12/18/2013

CLEMSON, SC - Clemson men’s soccer player Thomas McNamara was named a third-team All-American by Collegesoccernews.com as announced by the website Wednesday. McNamara has won many awards during the post-season. Last Friday he was named a second-team All-American by the NSCAA.

In November, he was named to the Capital One Academic All-America First-Team selected by CoSida (College Sports Information Directors of America). He was also named a NSCAA Scholar First-Team All-American today (Wednesday).

He is the 18th person in Clemson athletic history to be named an All-American both on and off the field in the same academic year. He is only the second men’s soccer player to accomplish this feat. Mike Potempa, a men’s soccer player in 1997-2000, was named a NSCAA All-American and an Academic All-American in 2000-01.

In 2013, McNamara was named ACC Player-of-the-Week twice and National Player-of-the-Week once. He was also named to the ACC All-Tournament team.

He scored four game-winning goals this season while leading the Tigers (11-7-3) to the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The four game-winning goals are the most since Dane Richards had seven in the 2005 season. The 22 points he accumulated in 2013 is also the most for a Tiger since Richards had 31 in 2006.
