Complete Top Drawer Soccer Top 100 List
QUEENS, N.Y. - After leading the Red Storm men's soccer team to its best BIG EAST season in nearly a decade, the senior duo of Harry Cooksley and David Enstrom has been honored with spots in the Top Drawer Soccer Postseason Top 100 list. Cooksley checked in at no. 68, while Enstrom was not far behind at no. 80.
The BIG EAST Midfielder and Defensive Player of the Year, respectively, Cooksley and Enstrom helped the Red Storm finish the season with a record of 9-7-3, including a 5-2-2 mark in conference action. That effort proved good enough for a third place finish in the final league standings, trailing only Butler and Georgetown.
A London native, Cooksley tied for the team lead with 16 points despite playing in just 14 games due to an ankle injury in September. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound midfielder tallied four goals and eight assists on the season, the latter of which tied for the highest total by a St. John's player since the College Cup campaign of 2003. Cooksley played his best soccer when it mattered most for the Red Storm, tallying a goal and six assists over the team's final five contests.
This Top 100 selection is the latest in a long line of accolades for Cooksley this fall, having already earned Third Team All-American honors from College Soccer News in addition to a spot on the United Soccer Coaches All-Region First Team.
Enstrom, a Third Team All-Region selection by United Soccer Coaches, anchored one of the top backlines in the nation this fall. As a team, the Red Storm led the BIG EAST and ranked 15th nationally with a 0.71 goals against average, tallying eight shutouts on the season.
In addition to his duties on the defensive end of the pitch, Enstrom also chipped in offensively, registering a goal and an assist on the campaign. His lone goal came at a crucial time for the Johnnies, as he headed home the game-winner in the Red Storm's 1-0 upset victory against No. 10 Georgetown on Senior Night at Belson Stadium.
