The United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) announced its Division II Men's Soccer All-Americans on November 7, 2018, at the 2018 USCAA Soccer National Tournament Banquet held in Virginia Beach, VA. Three Berkeley College New York Men’s Soccer team players were recognized, including a Second Team All-American and two All-American Honorable Mention honorees.

Josue Jiminez of Hempstead, NY, received Second Team All-American honors, while Jean-Gardy Derineau  of Valley Stream, NY, and Dario Cruz Sepulveda of Stamford, CT, received All-American Honorable Mention for their efforts.

Mr. Jiminez earned Second Team All-American recognition thanks to his stellar defensive efforts for the Berkeley College Knights soccer team this season. The sophomore standout anchored a defense that allowed 30 goals in 17 contests.

“I am proud of Josue, Jean-Gardy and Dario for this well-deserved recognition,” said Stavros Zomopoulos, Head Coach, Berkeley College New York Men’s Soccer team. “Jean-Gardy is an extremely balanced player and by far one of the best players in the National Division II. Dario is an exceptional goaltender who plays his heart out, evidenced by the fact that he has stopped four out of five penalty shot kicks this season, and Josue’s performance this season has been extremely encouraging. They are all team-oriented, hard-working student-athletes. They deserve this praise.”
