Earlier this month, Maywood native and Proviso East graduate Brandon Monteon was named a National Junior College Athletic Association All-American. With the honor, the Triton College men’s soccer player became Triton’s 219th student-athlete to receive the prestigious honor.
According to school officials, Monteon is the soccer program’s 21st All-American and the program’s seventh since 2008.
The freshman forward has been instrumental in Triton’s success on the field, leading the team to a 14-4 record this past season, during which he logged 19 goals, 19 assists and 57 points.
“Brandon is probably one of the best players to go through the program,” said Triton head men’s soccer coach Piotr Sliwa in a statement.
“He is a complete player which you could see by the stats. In addition to being a goal scorer, Brandon can also set his teammates and plays unselfish soccer,” he said. “He also can drop off into the midfield and defend. Brandon was double teamed all season and he still put up big numbers. I’m expecting a bigger year from him next year and hopefully he’ll lead the team to nationals and transfer out to a big D-1 program.” VFP
