Devlin Honored as NESCAC Player of the Year, Lockwood Garners All-Confererence Accolades for Camels
NEW LONDON, Conn--Connecticut College senior senior All-American midfielder Pat Devlin of Washington Crossing, Pa. has been honored as the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Men's Soccer Player of the Year.
Devlin was also named to the NESCAC Men's Soccer First Team in the midfield for the fourth consecutive year. Sophomore forward Chris Lockwood of Glastonbury, Conn. earned second team honors for the Camels.
Devlin, who had scored six goals in his first three seasons on the pitch, won the NESCAC regular season scoring crown as a midfielder, wrapping up his season with his 13 goals and 29 points this fall. Four of those goals have been game-winners. He is ranked 20th in the country with 0.93 goals scored per game and is 23rd nationally with an average of 2.07 points per contest.
Devlin is just the second Camel men's soccer player to earn Player of the Year Honors, joining fellow Camel Billy Hawkey '14 in 2013.
Devlin was honored for his academic excellence on the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District 2 First Team in Men's Soccer.
He has advanced to the national ballot. The 2016 CoSIDA Division III Academic All-America Men's Soccer Team is scheduled to be released on Friday November18.
In 2015, Devlin was honored on the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-America Third Team while also being named to the NSCAA Scholar All-America Second Team.
"Pat is as complete a player as I have seen in the NESCAC in my eight years coaching at Connecticut College," Connecticut College Head Men's Soccer Coach Kenny Murphy said.
Lockwood had seven goals and one assist to finish with 15 points in a breakout sophomore season. He is ranked sixth in the NESCAC with his seven goals scored and is second in the NESCAC with his four game-winners. Lockwood has accounted for 12 goals, four assists and 28 points in his first two seasons of action.

"Chris is a dedicated individual who has put in hours of hard work to improve his game," Murphy said.

Under the direction of Coach Murphy, the Camels finished up another terrific season with a record of 10-5-1. They have reached double digits in the win column in each of the past two years.
