Washington’s C.J. Klaas continues to make history for the Huskies men’s soccer program as the senior midfielder was named to the NSCAA/Adidas All-America first-team for the second consecutive year, making him the first player in the program to earn two first-team All-America selections.


Klaas, a native of Cherry Valley, Ill., made history last season, becoming the first UW player to earn first-team All-America honors and is now the first to repeat. That’s something Klaas should be used to, as he also became the first player in Pac-10 history to earn four all-conference honors.


Klaas led the Huskies to the first round of the NCAA tournament, scoring a career-high five goals and matching his career-high with six assists in 19 games.
