Brian Fekete Named Daktronics Honorable Mention All-AmericanDecember 2, 2011
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – University of Tampa men’s soccer player Brian Fekete was named an honorable mention All-American by Daktronics.
The junior defender from Plant City, Fla., started 13 games for the Spartans and finished with a goal and three assists. He was also the leader of a Spartan defensive unit that notched a shutout of SSC champion and national finalist Lynn University.
In 2010, Fekete was also a second-team all-Sunshine State Conference selection while being a first-team all-South Region choice by Daktronics.

The process begins at the regional level with all first team All-Region picks advancing to the national ballot. This is the sixth year Daktronics has sponsored the NCAA Division II men’s soccer All-America and All-Region teams.
The team is sponsored by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in scoring, timing and programmable display systems for virtually every sport at every level of competition.
