Simpson College men's soccer player and Decorah native Mitchell White joined teammates Louis Joslyn and Kyle Kusy on the NCAA Division III Capital One Academic All-District 8® First Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
As first team selections, all three advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first, second and third team All-America honors will be selected later this month.
White, a junior forward from Decorah, has a 3.33 grade point average as an athletic training major. He leads the Iowa Conference with 14 goals, adding four assists for a league-high 32 points. White has catapulted up Simpson's career record books this season and currently has 34 goals in three seasons, tied for the second most in school history and just two shy of the school record. He earned Iowa Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors Sept. 22 after a week that included his second career hat trick.
White is the son of Steve and Connie White of Decorah.
