FLORENCE, S.C. — Francis Marion senior defender Sam Pollard and junior midfielder Alvaro Zamora have both been selected to the NCAA Division II Conference Commissioners Association Men’s Soccer All-Southeast Region Team. Both players were named to the 13-member second-team squad.

Both were also all-region selections in 2019, the most recent time the postseason honors were awarded.

Pollard, a native of Perth, Australia, led FMU is points with six goals and eight assists (second best in Conference Carolinas). He played all but 18 minutes this past season and helped anchor a Patriot defense that allowed only 20 goals in 19 matches and an average of only 4.3 shots on goal per match. He is a four-time All-Conference selection.

Two of his scores were match-winners, he shared the team lead with 33 shots, and registered one assist. He is a three-time All-Conference pick.

The pair led FMU to a 12-5-2 record, the Conference Carolinas regular season championship, and an appeaArance in the conference tournament championship match.

Pollard is a product of Ocean Reef Senior High School, and is majoring in Sports Management and Human Resources at FMU. Zamora came to FMU from IES Los Castillos, and is a marketing major.
