AUSTIN, TX - Senior captain James Allison was named Third-team Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America (COSIDA).

Allison, a defender from San Francisco, becomes just the second UCSC men's soccer player to earn Academic All-American honors. Henry Abraham earned A-A honors from the United Soccer Coaches in 2007-08.

He will graduate in 2020 with a degree in molecular cell and developmental biology. He was one of 11 players of the 33 honorees to major in biology or pre-med.

On the field, he started 18 games in a row on the backline as UCSC made it to the ACAA Conference Title game and had their first winning season since 2014.
