Nittany Lion Soccermen Select
'4O All-Opponent Collegiate Team
As a tribute to the meritous
playing of individual opponents,
the Nittany Lion soccermer.. with
the aid of Coach Bill Jeffrey last
night selected an all-opponent
team of individually outstanding
players against whom they con
tinued their streak of eight con
secutive seasons without defeat.
Although the Jeffreymen select
ed only one team, second team
hondrs and honorable mentions of
talented players were too numer
ous for the team and Coach Jeffrey
to agree upon.
In the, opinion of the coach and
players, Partridge of Penn and
Gukeyson of Army were evaluated
as probably the best individual op
ponents met during the season.
Following is the Nittany •booters'
