Virginia Trio Gets VaSID All-State Nod

Dec. 13, 2017

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) listed Sergi Nus (Barcelona, Spain), Jeff Caldwell (Todd, N.C.) and Jean-Christophe Koffi (Potomac, Md.) on its annual All-State Teams.

Nus was the lone Cavalier representative on the first team while Caldwell and Koffi earned second team honors. Nus earned back-to-back First Team accolades and Caldwell was recognized by VaSID for the third time in his career.

Nus had a breakout year for Virginia, starting all 21 games at center back in 2017. He contributed a career-high six goals on the offensive end and helped the Cavaliers to six shutouts. He also garnered Second Team All-Region and Third Team All-ACC honors this postseason.

Caldwell was one of four soccer players in the commonwealth this year to become a three-time All-State selection. The senior netminder posted a .80 goals against average, the third lowest in the ACC and was ranked in the top-25 nationally. He collected Second Team All-Region and Second Team All-ACC distinctions in his final season.

Koffi, the first Cavalier since 2014 to earn First Team All-ACC honors, was a Second Team All-State selection for the first time in his career. The midfielder totaled three goals and four assists in 18 games played.
