The national awards haul continues for Tommie Men's Soccer junior defender Halvor Houg. 

The Baerums, Norway native, who last week made All-America on the field, on Wednesday was named one of 12 first-teamers on the United Soccer Coaches Men's Scholar All-America team for 2019.

Juniors and seniors who excel academically and start 50 percent or more of their team's games were eligible for nomination. Earlier, Houg was joined on the Scholar All-Region team by teammates Sam Holton and Troy Louwagie, all among 28 honorees from 21 different teams.

Houg is a Leadership and Management major with a 3.63 grade-point average. He contributed a team-best eight goals in 19 games, including a 4-for-4 clip on penalty kicks and four game-winning goals.

In three seasons he's played in 52 games with 15 goals (seven game winning) and two assists. The Toms are 12-0-1 in games when Houg has scored a goal, and they have a three-year overall record of 50-10-5 so far in his era.
