Congratulations to Penn State's Jason Yeisley on being named one of the ten men's finalists for the 2009 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award.

To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence - classroom, character, community and competition. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

The 20 finalists (from both men's and women's divisions) will be placed on the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award soccer ballot for a nationwide vote beginning today and concluding November 13. Fan balloting will be available on the award's official Web site, http://www.seniorCLASSaward.com, as well as through text messaging. Fans can text SOCCER to 74567 to vote for men's finalists and GOAL to 74567 to vote for women's finalists. These votes will be combined with votes from coaches and media to determine the recipient of the award.

Yeisley was also named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week. In a 5-0 pounding of Penn on Sept. 30, the team co-captain scored his fifth and team-high sixth goals of the season. The effort was the sixth multiple goal game of his career.
