PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Two members of the Plymouth State University men's soccer program have been invited to participate in the annual New England Intercollegiate Soccer League Senior All-Star Game this Saturday (Apr. 28) in Worcester, Mass.
Defender Bryan Biederman (Holderness, N.H.) and forward Felix Rosen (Stockholm, Sweden) will represent the Panthers in the NEISL All-Star Game Saturday at 5:00 p.m. at Clark University. Division I, II and III all-stars will be divided evenly among the two teams and the annual awards will be presented at halftime.
Biederman (right) and Rosen (far right) completed outstanding careers for the Panthers in 2006. Biederman is a two-time All-New England defender and a three-time All-Little East Conference First Team selection. Rosen led the team in scoring his first two seasons in 2003 and 2004, missed nearly his entire junior season with an injury, and rebounded to finish second on the team in scoring as a senior. They helped the Panthers to a 43-23-10 record over the past four seasons, with four straight ECAC New England Tournament berths.
This year's PSU representatives are following in the footsteps of several other former Panthers who have played in the Senior All-Star game in recent years, including goalie Brad Wilby in 2004, defender Nick Libera in 2005, and defenders Steve Balgach and Steve Libera last year.
The NEISL was founded in 1934, making it the older soccer league in the American Collegiate ranks today. There are nearly 80 institutions that comprise the NEISL, representing Divisions I, II and III and NAIA Athletic Associations.
