PISCATWAY, N.J. (June 11, 2013) – Incoming Rutgers men’s soccer freshman Erik Sa (Watchung, N.J.) was among the Top Ten Midfielders from the high school class of 2013 named by College Soccer News.
"There are a lot of talented players out there, but this recognition is well deserved,” said Rutgers head men’s soccer coach Dan Donigan. “As I said when we signed him, Erik is a very talented player that will compliment other players within our team. We expect him to contribute immediately and continue his development within our program. Our entire coaching staff is very excited to bring a high quality player and person of this caliber into our program."
Sa is the team captain of the New York Redbulls U-18 academy team, which finished as the number one seed in the country and heads into the playoffs in late June. This past season, he appeared in 22 contests with 19 starts and five goals as the squad went 19-1-5.
The incoming Scarlet Knight was also a member of the US U-15 National Team, PDA U-16 Academy Team and US Developmental Academy Select Team in the winter of 2009 and spring of 2010.
At Seton Hall Prep in 2011, where he collected nine goals and 14 assists and helped his team to the semifinals of the 2011 NJSIAA Tournament, Sa was named Third Team All-State and First Team All-Essex County.
