DANBURY, Conn. – Raphael Carvalho, of Danbury, helped to lead the Herkimer Community College soccer team to a winning record and back-to-back national championships. And now Carvalho, who plays midfield for the team, has been named to the 2012 National Soccer Coaches Association of America Junior College Men’s Soccer Scholar All-America team.
"Raphael represents what a true student-athlete should be," coach Pepe Aragon said in a statement. "He is not only a great player but is also a tremendous student as well. He takes a great deal of pride in his studies. What a great representation he is for our program.”
Carvalho will receive an award for the honor in Indianapolis on Jan. 19 at the NSCAA All-America luncheon. He is a general studies major in the liberal arts and sciences program.
