FIU soccer’s Hobbs, Albrecht earn postseason honors

MediaHandler.ashxFIU soccer’s former defender Anthony Hobbs was named a Senior CLASS Award First-Team All-American while sophomore Quentin Albrecht was named Third-Team All-South Region.

Hobbs was a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, which was recently presented to Brown defender Ryan McDuff at the NCAA College Cup. The 10 finalists were then broken up into a first and second team and Hobbs earned the distinction of first-team honors. Short for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, CLASS  focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

In addition to earning this honor, Hobbs was named to the All-C-USA Third Team and to the C-USA All-Academic Team. He is the only four-time, all-conference and two-time, all-academic team honoree in the history of FIU men’s soccer and the first All-American recipient since Alen Kozic in 1997. Hobbs finished his career at FIU with 67 games played, seeing 5,843 minutes on the pitch.

Albrecht was named to the All-South Region Third Team after a successful sophomore season where he led the team in goals (10), points (23), shots (70), shots on goal (29), game-winning goals (3) and minutes by a forward (1,529). His 10 goals and 23 points are the most by a Panther in a season since Matias Asorey netted 13 goals and had 29 points in 2002.

Albrecht finished the season as one of the top forwards in the conference, ranking second in shots, fourth in points and goals, and tied for third in game-winning goals. During his career, Albrecht has had 15 goals and five assists for a total of 35 points, putting him just outside the FIU top-25 for all-time scoring. Albrecht was also recently named to the All-C-USA Second Team.
