DENVER – Johnson & Wales University freshman Justin Defoe (Huntington Beach, CA) has been named to the All-SCAC Second Team, the conference announced Tuesday.

Defoe started nine games for the Wildcats in 2019 and finished with two goals, seven ground balls and nine caused turnovers.

Defoe's first goal as a Wildcat aided JWU Denver's 13-10 win over North Central (MN) on Feb. 23. On April 6 against Division II Colorado State University-Pueblo, the defender set season highs with two ground balls and three caused turnovers.

Zac Asbury of Southwestern University was selected as the SCAC Offensive Player of the Year while Colorado College's Jack Ammons was named the Defensive Player of the Year based on voting by the conference's coaches.
