In his final season with the Boston University men's soccer team, senior back Dan Schultz played an instrumental role in anchoring a backline that shut out 10 opponents and allowed just four goals in the final 11 games of the season. He also helped the Terriers finish the year 27th in the nation with a 0.78 goals against average.
A NSCAA all-northeast region first team honoree, the Cincinnati, Ohio native and team co-captain was previously named to the America East all-conference first team. He was also named an ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA third-team Academic All-American, becoming the first Terrier since 1994 to receive national academic honors.
During the first round of the NCAA tournament, Schultz went up against Fairleigh Dickinson's Samson Malijani, who entered the contest second in the nation with a 2.16 points per game average along off 18 goals and five assists. Schultz with assistance from his teammates held the forward to just one shot the entire contest, helping BU advance to the second round with the 1-0 victory.
