ESPN All-District Team Men's Soccer Teams

Two members of the Calvin men’s soccer team have received ESPN Academic All-District IV honors. Calvin seniors Scott Hooker and Ryan Bratt have both been named to the ESPN Academic All-District IV second team in the college division. Both players are receiving the honor for the first time.

A native of Hudsonville and a graduate of Unity Christian High School, Hooker has been a four-year starter for Calvin in either a midfield or striker’s role. This year, Hooker has three goals and four assists on a Calvin team that is currently 13-2-2 overall and ranked 18th nationally. He was recently named MIAA Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in his career. Hooker has been named to the All-MIAA first team twice and to the All-MIAA second team once. Last fall, he was named to the All-Central Region second team after being named to the Great Lakes All-Region third team in 2008.

Over the course of his Calvin career, Hooker has tallied 26 goals, 26 assists and 78 points. He is tied for fifth on the Calvin career list for assists and is ninth on the Calvin career list for points.

A biology major, Hooker carries a 3.59 grade point average. He has been a two-time member of the MIAA Academic Honor Roll.

Bratt is from Silver Spring, Maryland. He is a graduate of Washington Christian Academy. Last fall, Bratt became Calvin’s starting goalkeeper late in the season and has been a lynchpin of the Calvin defense since. This year, Bratt is 13-2-3 in goal with 11 shutouts and a goals-against-average of 0.45. He is currently ranked 21st nationally in goals-against-average.

In 2009, Bratt appeared in 10 games, started in seven and posted a 4-1-2 record with a goals-against-average of 0.59. Highlights of his 2009 campaign included a 1-0 shutout victory over rival Hope that helped Calvin clinch the MIAA title and shootout victories over Wartburg and Transylvania University in the NCAA III Tournament that helped catapault Calvin all the way to the national championship final in San Antonio, Texas.

At Calvin, Bratt holds a double-major of English and religion. He carries a 3.44 grade point average.
