December 16, 1998

CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson Soccer Player, Wojtek Krakowiak was named a 1998 first-team All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), and Tiger head coach Trevor Adair has been honored as the NSCAA South Region Coach of the Year.

Krakowiak was named the recipient of College Soccer’s Hermann Award in Richmond, VA, last Saturday. A parks, recreation, and tourism management major, he finished the 1998 season with 31 goals and eight assists for 70 points. He also scored 10 game winning goals. The 31 goals ranks third in the Clemson record book for most goals scored in a single season. The 70 points is also third for most points scored in a single season by a Clemson player.

The junior from Clifton, NJ, led the ACC in goals scored (31) and points (70) in 1998. He was also named first-team all-ACC and all-South Region and ACC Player-of-the-Year in 1998. Krakowiak is the fifth Clemson All-American in Adair’s tenure as head coach.

Adair led Clemson to a 22-2 season in 1998, and to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament. Also in 1998, Clemson won the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship for the first time since 1993.

“Krakowiak’s honor is a just reward for a truly fine season,” said Adair. “He is someone who has credited his teammates for his success this season, a great gesture to the team from a truly great person.”
