2 Central Penn College Soccer Players Make First Team All-Conference
Jaeger James of Dover and Jake Philippe of Harrisburg, two Central Penn College soccer standouts, have been chosen for First Team–Eastern States Athletic Conference (ESAC).
Earlier this month, it was announced that the two also made First Team All-American, the first players to earn that distinction in the college’s 141-year history, and doubly remarkable because both are in their freshman year. This is also the first time in school history that a men’s soccer player has been named to the all-conference team.
James is a midfielder from Dover. Philippe is a midfielder and forwards from Harrisburg and a Central Dauphin High School graduate.
Coach Brian Osborne, a Trinity High School alumnus who is now entering his second year of coaching at Central Penn, applauded Jaeger James for having 12 goals and six assists this past season.
He also noted the offensive power of Jake Philippe, of Harrisburg, who finished the season with 10 goals and 8 assists.
“These honors are huge for our students,” said Central Penn College Athletic Director Kasey Hicks.
“Having two young students recognized as First Team All-Conference speaks to the potential of this program in the very near future! Big things are in store!” Hicks added.
