Sophomore forward Arin Gilliland has been named in the 2012 National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-South Region Team.
The Lexington native led UK (14-7-1, 8-5-1 SEC) to its first NCAA Tournament win in program history in 2012.
“It is such an honor to receive an award like this,” Gilliland said. “It is great to be able to represent my family, coaches, teammates and the University of Kentucky as a whole. I am only a sophomore, so I hope to continue to bring pride to this program along with my team and leave a legacy that is never forgotten.”
Being named in the All-South Region Team is the third accolade for Gilliland this close season.
