MCCC Sophomore Named Soccer All-American


Victor Hernandez, a sophomore on the men's soccer team at Mercer County Community College, has been named an All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. A native of Port Chester, New York, Hernandez has played two seasons with the MCCC Vikings, which advanced to the national tournament both years. As part of last year's team (which lost in overtime in the national final), Hernandez was a left fullback; this year, he played as a defensive center midfielder and served as team captain. The Vikings finished their 2007 season with a 14-7-1 record.

Said MCCC Head Coach Charlie Inverso, "Vic is as good a leader as we have had here at Mercer. He is a tough-nosed midfielder and, as the season progressed, his toughness started wearing off on the freshmen. His parents taught him a great work ethic."

Hernandez will remain at Mercer to complete his associate degree.
