ECNL College Impact – The Pacific-12 Conference

  • November 9, 2016

RICHMOND, VA (November 9, 2016) – Elite Clubs National League College Impact series catalogs the incredible impact the ECNL has had on college women’s soccer since its founding in 2009, and which increases every year. Across college soccer, the “ECNL player” is the epitome of the next generation collegiate soccer player and collegiate soccer star.

The ECNL College Impact is measured by the number of ECNL alumni that have moved on to collegiate soccer, and by their contribution to collegiate athletic conferences all over the United States. This week, the ECNL examines the Pac-12 Conference.

The ECNL College Impact for the Pac-12 Conference includes all players currently active on Pac-12 rosters:

  • 212 ECNL Alums are currently playing in the Pac-12 Conference, nearly 66% of the players in the entire conference.
  • 10 of the 11 players from the Pac-12 First Team are ECNL Alums, making up more than 90% of the award winners.
  • 73% of players from the Pac-12 Second Team are ECNL Alums.
  • 9 of the 11 players from the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team are ECNL Alums.
  • The Pac-12 Player of the Year (Andi Sullivan), Pac-12 Freshman of the Year (Taylor Kornieck), Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year (Mandy Freeman) and Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Year (Sammy Jo Prudhomme) are ECNL Alums.

The Pac-12 includes the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, University of California, University of Colorado, University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Stanford University, University of California Los Angeles, University of Southern California, University of Utah, University of Washington, and Washington State University.  

With the majority of the conference, and the overwhelming majority of the conference honorees, it is clear where the future Pac-12 stars are playing youth soccer.
