Aug. 22, 2012. Appalachian State University men’s soccer defender Lee Williams has been named to College Soccer News’ Preseason All-American Third Team, it was announced on Monday. 

Williams, who was named to the Hermann Watch List last week, was a main contributor to a defense that ranked No. 6 nationally in goals-against and shutout percentage in 2011. Most recently, the senior was selected to the Preseason Southern Conference Team after being named to the All-SoCon second team last season.

The Liverpool, England native capped off the preseason with a goal in the 4-0 victory over VMI on Monday. Williams and the Mountaineers will open the regular season on Friday, Aug. 24 as they host East Tennessee State. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.
