Since the University of Missouri–St. Louis men’s soccer season concluded in the fall, junior midfielder Jon Huelsman has collected several awards. He has been named to the following:

Huelsman, who is majoring in education with an emphasis in physical education, led the Tritons with 26 points, including team-bests of 10 goals and six assists. He tallied four game-winners, recorded three two-goal games and was named both the GLVC Offensive Player and Disney Soccer/NSCAA Division II Player of the Week in mid-October.

Huelsman started all 18 games, recording 47 shots, including 24 on goal for a shot on goal percentage of .511. In GLVC-only games, he ranked fourth in points (20) and goals (eight).

Huelsman helped the Tritons to a 12-4-2 record, tying the most wins in head coach Dan King’s 14-years. The Tritons were 11-3-1 in GLVC play, a program-best, and garnered the No. 3 seed in the league tournament. UMSL hosted a GLVC Tournament quarterfinal game for the first time since 2002, but bowed out with a 2-0 loss to eventual champion and No. 6 seed Indianapolis.
