When Hurricane Harvey forced the postponement of two Florida State women's soccer matches late last summer, the Seminoles evacuated Tallahassee as a precaution, busing eight hours to share facilities with Ole Miss for a few days before a makeup match at Troy.

Many products of Section 6 and the Monsignor Martin Association's high school soccer programs stay local, filling out the rosters of the area's abundance of non-NCAA Division I schools. Others wind up at places a little tougher to find on a map - like Thiel, Skidmore, Clarks Summit and Oberlin, to name a few.

GK: Marco Trivellato, Canisius senior
Stats: 9-4-4, 1.31 GAA, 77 saves, six shutouts…

East Aurora senior Bryce Schiltz was one of 66 players named to the 2017 United Soccer Coaches Fall High School Boys All-America Team announced Monday by United Soccer Coaches.
