MILWAUKEE --- Marquette University redshirt senior goalkeeper Charlie Lyon was named a Senior CLASS Award Second-Team All-American Friday after two months of fan voting and Division I head coaches' voting.
Lyon, who was one of 10 finalists for the award, joined Milwaukee midfielder Laurie Bell, Andy Bevin (West Virginia), Winston Boldt (Army), and Kingsley Bryce (St. Louis) on the second team.
Ohio State goalkeeper Alex Ivanov took home the award after garnering the most votes.
The St. Charles, Ill. native was a part of a list of the most outstanding Division I senior soccer players who all excelled on the pitch, in the classroom, and in the community.
The award is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I men's soccer. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence - classroom, community, character and competition.
In November, Lyon was the fourth Marquette athlete to be named a Capital One Academic All-America Frist Team award winner for the second time in his career.
Lyon carries a cumulative grade point average of 3.887 and is set to graduate this December, majoring in biomedical sciences.
Marquette's co-captain set a program record in 2014 with eight straight shutouts from Sept. 5 through Oct. 11, including a stretch of 804:58 minutes without conceding a goal (also a school record). A three-time Academic All-District selection and three-time BIG EAST All-Academic Team member, Lyon recorded 29 shutouts in his career, most in program history. Lyon is also Marquette's all-time career leader in goals against average (0.83) and save percentage (.811).
