SEGUIN, TX -- Texas Lutheran Men's Soccer placed six players on the Southern Collegiate All-Conference teams, announced Thursday.

In exclusive voting by the league's head soccer coaches, Luis Green was selected 2021 SCAC Offensive Player-of-the-Year for a record fourth consecutive year.

He was tied for seventh with five assists. Green was also second in scoring in conference-only competition with seven goals and 17 points in eight SCAC contests. Assuming he retains his current positioning, he would become the only men's player in league history to finish ranked first or second in the conference in goals, goals per game, points, and points per game for four consecutive seasons. Green has also made his way up the league's all-time scoring charts as his 62 career goals rank fourth all-time – and is tied for the TLU program record. In addition, his 138 points scored are tied for fifth on the SCAC career list, and his 1.00 goals per game average ties with Will Lukow of Oglethorpe (1991-94) as the highest in league history. His 2.23 points-per-game ranks second all-time. A four-time recipient of the award, Green remains TLU's sole recipient of the league's highest offensive honor. With this recognition, Green was also named First Team All-SCAC - TLU's lone First Team representative.Green received five votes in the balloting for Offensive Player-of-the-Year honors, followed by first-year forward Daniel Castro of St. Thomas and senior forward Kiran Singh of Colorado College, who each received two first-place votes.
