Howard Soccer player selected Sun Belt Preseason All-Conference

Coach considers Howard junior goalkeeper Carlos Caro one of the best in the country.

Howard University goalkeeper Carlos Caro has been voted first-team All Sun Belt Conference for the upcoming soccer season.

Though Howard is most closely related with the MEAC, soccer is not included in its sports offered. Because of this, Howard’s men’s soccer operates in the Sun Belt Conference while women’s soccer operates in the SWAC.

The votes for Caro, who is a junior, were all cast by the conference’s five men’s soccer head coaches. Caro’s sophomore season consisted of  66 total saves, averaging 4.12 saves per-match with two shutouts, which was second in the league. Caro was also selected in 2017 to the SBC All-Tournament Team.

“I am happy to see Carlos [Caro] acknowledged by the coaches throughout the Sun Belt,” said Howard Men’s Soccer Head Coach Phillip Gyau. “I truly believe he’s one of the best goalies in the country.”

Howard was 2-15 last year and is projected to finish last in the Sun Belt this year. The Bison executed their best games towards the end of the season while reaching the SBC semifinals with the help of goalkeeper Caro.

Coach Phillip Gyau and the Bison start their 2018 season on August 24 against Bryant at William H. Greene Stadium in Washington, D.C.
