DIV I

Louisville Cardinals
Key Players: Austin Berry (Senior, Defender), Andre Boudreaux (Senior, Goalkeeper), Nick DeLeon (Senior, Midfielder), Colin Rolfe (Senior, Forward), Kenney Walker (Senior, Midfielder)

Notes: Louisville is bringing back nine starters from it's 2010 national runner-up team, including Hermann Trophy finalist Rolfe. The Cardinals swept the preseason Big East individual awards with Rolfe (Co-Offensive Player of the Year), Berry (Defensive Player of the Year), and Boudreaux (Goalkeeper of the Year) all garnering honors.

Akron Zips
Key Players: Chad Barson (Junior, Defender), Scott Caldwell (Junior, Midfielder), Darren Mattocks (Sophomore, Forward), David Meves (Junior, Goalkeeper).

Notes: The defending national champions will have to replace a wealth of talent, including seven players that were selected in January’s Major League Soccer Draft. The Zips, whose national title was the first in any sport in school history, are bringing in a highly regarded 16 member recruiting class to help fill the void of the departed players.

UCLA Bruins
Key Players: Victor Chavez (Sophomore, Forward), Andy Rose (Senior, Defender), Brian Rowe (Senior, Goalkeeper), Kelyn Rowe (Sophomore, Midfielder).

Notes: The Bruins return all 11 starters from last year’s NCAA quarterfinal team, including third-team All-American Chavez. UCLA will have a chance to avenge their quarterfinal defeat from last season by opening the 2011 campaign with a rematch against No. 1 Louisville.

DIV II

Northern Kentucky Norse
Key Players: Tommy Barrick (Senior, Defender), Michael Bartlett (Junior, Midfielder) Nicholas Chiarot (Sophomore, Forward), Michael Holder (Sophomore, Forward), Anthony Meyer (Senior, Forward).

Notes: The defending national champion Norse will have their hands full in replacing Steven Beattie, a three-time All-American and two-time Division II National Player of the Year. Northern Kentucky will rely on a pair of sophomore forwards, Chiarot and Holder, to try and fill the offensive void that Beattie left behind.

Clayton State Lakers
Key Players: Arturo Cruz (Sophomore, Forward), Brian Garcia (Senior, Goalkeeper), Matty Phillips (Senior, Midfielder), Ryan Pugh (Senior, Forward).

Notes: Clayton State, who returns seven starters from last season’s squad, is coming off the best season in school history after recording 19 wins and advancing to the NCAA quarterfinals. The Lakers will look to Pugh, the reigning Peach Belt Conference Player of the Year, and Cruz, last year’s PBC freshman of the year, to lead the way offensively.

Chico State Wildcats
Key Players: Chris Akwaja (Senior, Forward), Ferid Celosmanovic (Senior, Forward), Tyson Crim (Junior, Forward), Jacob Darr (Senior, Defender), Sam Evans (Sophomore, Goalkeeper).

Notes: The Wildcats, who bring back nine starters from the 2010 team, will look to improve upon last season’s NCAA quarterfinal appearance. Celosmanovic, a 2010 first-team All-American, Akwaja and Crim pose as a formidable offensive front and will lead the attack for Chico State’s offense.

DIV III

Messiah Falcons
Key Players: Jake Berry (Junior, Goalkeeper), Derek Black (Senior, Forward), Kent Ramirez (Senior, Forward), Tom Renko (Senior, Midfielder), Jordan Sands (Senior, Defender), Danny Thompson (Senior, Forward), Logan Thompson (Junior, Defender).

Wisconsin-Oshkosh Titans
Key Players: Will Chaney (Junior, Defender), James Pike (Junior, Goalkeeper), Tim Stadler (Junior, Midfielder), Tony Starnes (Sophomore, Forward).

Notes: Wisconsin-Oshkosh welcomes back seven starters from the 2010 squad that advanced to the NCAA semifinals after compiling a 20-1-3 record. Stadler, last season’s leading scorer for the Titans, will be counted upon to lead the charge offensively.

Bowdoin Polar Bears
Key Players: Sean Bishop (Senior, Defender), Zach Danssaert (Sophomore, Forward), Eddie Jones (Senior, Forward), Call Nichols (Senior, Defender), Nick Powell (Senior, Midfielder). 

Notes: Bowdoin returns seven starters and five of its top seven scorers from last season’s team that won a school-record 15 games and advanced to the NCAA semifinals. Bishop and Nichols look to anchor a veteran Polar Bear defense and build upon last year’s success.
