The 2011 men's Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches All-American team was finally released this week with USC Trojans goalie Joel Dennerley being named player of the year with his head coach Jovan Vavic named coach of the year. USC is coming off of their fourth straight NCAA title and actually landed eight players on the All-American list. Four were named to the first- and second-teams with four others being named to the lengthy honorable mention list.
Also it is no surprise that all but two spots come from the MPSF. There are no East Coast players at all which is somewhat surprising since Princeton did get third at this past NCAA's. The only two non-MPSF spots are awarded to LMU's Edgaras Asajavicius and Aaron Salit from UC-Davis.
Go check out the full list including honorable mentions and you have been warned the list is lengthy.
