BERKELEY - California junior goalkeeper Justin Myers was named to the Jewish Sports Review's 2006 All-American team for men's Division I soccer. Myers had a 0.87 goals-against average in 15 starts and was also named Honorable Mention All-Pac-10. His play helped the Bears win their first Pac-10 title and reach the third round of the NCAA College Cup last fall.
Myers played 1,350 minutes and 26 seconds in goal, notched six shutouts and compiled an 11-4 personal record for Cal. He led the Pac-10 Conference in lowest GAA (0.87) and best save percentage (80.3) and was tied for second in the Pac-10 in shutouts. Myers alternated starting duties with freshman teammate Stefan Frei for half of the season before clinching the full-time spot on Oct. 6 against Oregon State. One game later, he made five saves and collected one of his shutouts in a 2-0 upset of then-ninth-ranked Washington in Seattle.
The San Diego product also made six saves in Cal's 3-1 win over New Mexico in the first round of the College Cup on Nov. 15 in Berkeley.
In 2005, Cal defender Andrew Felder was named a Jewish Sports Review All-American.
