NEW YORK - The postseason awards keep rolling in for the Columbia men's soccer team, as a pair of Lions were named to the TopDrawerSoccer Best XI teams.
A little over a week after being honored as a second team All-American by the United Soccer Coaches, Bosua picks up this award, capping an impressive career at Columbia. The Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year for the second straight season, Bosua led the conference in goals with 12 and points with 29, moving up to seventh in the school record book in both categories. The senior scored a career-high four goals during a 6-0 rout of Harvard on Nov. 5, earning Ivy League Player of the Week accolades in the process. On the season, Bosua had four games with three or more points, and ranked 15th in the country with 1.61 points per game. This is also the second straight year Bosua was named a first team all-region honoree.
For Willis, a strong season on the back line helped Columbia have once again one of the top defenses in the country. Alongside fellow centerback Alex Bangerl, the Flower Mound, Texas, native helped the Lions allow just six goals on the season, as Columbia ended the year with the second lowest team GAA in the NCAA. Willis started 17 of 18 matches, tallying a pair of assists in his rookie campaign, including an impressive long ball that led to Beto Carrillo's game-winner against Yale.
