Appalachian State University Men's Soccer defender Zeiko Harris was named Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year.
"We are very happy for Zeiko to get some recognition from the coaches in the Sun Belt conference. He has made tremendous impact on the team this year," head coach Jason O'Keefe said. "He has also been part of a core group of guys over the past two years who have set new standards for the program and helped achieve a lot of goals."
Harris has anchored the App State defense that ended the regular season leading the Sun Belt in shutouts (7), T-2nd in goals allowed (20) and 3rd in goals against average (1.153). App State's shutout percentage of .412 sits at 37th nationally. Along with Harris' defensive effort, he has scored two goals this season, including the game-winner in the 2-0 win over George Mason. The defender had nine shots with four on goal.
