St. John's Cooksley makes Great Lakes team
QUEENS, N.Y. -- St. John's junior midfielder Harry Cooksley was selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Great Lakes Region second team.
Cooksley, a first team All-Big East choice last month, paced the Red Storm with five goals and six assists this season, finishing with a team-best 16 points. His 16 points were the most by a St. Johnís player since the 2011 season when Jack Bennett collected 18, while his six assists tied for fourth in the conference overall.
Cooksley led the Big East and ranked fourth in the nation with 4.47 shots per game.
Of his five goals, a number were destined for the highlight reel, including a 35-yard blast that bent its way into the upper 90 against No. 6 Syracuse on Sept. 4 and a game-winner against No. 11 Butler on Oct. 15 that saw the London native dribble through a number of defenders before finding the back of the net.
