FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas’ Parker Goins became the second Razorback to ever be named a United Soccer Coaches First-Team All-American on Friday.
The postseason recognition comes on the heels of a record-setting season for Goins. She set personal bests with 11 goals and 14 assists in 24 games in her super-senior season.
She is also a semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy, which is given to the nation’s top college soccer player.
The senior attacker led a vaunted Arkansas front line that finished second in the country with 71 total goals. She helped the team to the Razorbacks’ first Elite Eight appearance, which resulted in a loss to Rutgers in penalty kicks.
Arkansas coach Colby Hale said Goins’ decision to forego the professional ranks to play an extra season for the Hogs cemented her legacy with the program. In her fifth season, Goins broke the school’s points and assists records.
The reigning SEC midfielder of the year exits the Razorback soccer team after racking up 118 career points and 38 assists.
Goins was selected with the 21st pick by Racing Louisville in the 2021 National Women’s Soccer League Draft. She will join the team in 2022 to be a part of the club’s second season in the NWSL.
