Kansas City, Kan. - Senior midfielder Leonardo Fernandes (North Babylon, N.Y.) of the Stony Brook men's soccer team has been named second-team All-America by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), the organization announced Friday afternoon. Fernandes is the first Stony Brook men's soccer player to ever receive All-America honors.

Fernandes had an outstanding 2012 season that saw him score nine goals and assist on seven others for a total of 25 points. Five of his nine goals were game-winners, and he assisted on game-winning goals three times. He was named 2012 America East Midfielder of the Year and first-team All-America East. He was also named to the America East Championship All-Tournament team for his outstanding play in helping the Seawolves reach the semifinals for the fourth consecutive season.

Fernandes wrapped up his Stony Brook career as the program's all-time leader in points with 79. He also is third in goals (31) and third in assists (17), and he ranks first in the program's Div. I history in each category. He is a three-time America East Midfielder of the Year and first-team All-America East recipient. He also previously was named first-team NSCAA All-Northeast Region in 2011 and third-team NSCAA All-Northeast Region in 2010.

Earlier this week, Fernandes was also named an ECAC All-Star.
