Stanford's Morris joins U.S. Under-23 soccer team


Stanford soccer forward Jordan Morris was among 18 players called to Tuzla, Bosnia & Herzegovina by U.S. Under-23 Men's National Team head coach Andi Herzog on Sunday. The squad will have its first training camp of 2015 as it begins qualifying preparations for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The team will train from Monday through Thursday and then face Bosnia's U-23 National Team on Friday in Tuzla, before traveling to face Denmark on Tuesday, March 31.

Morris is one of three players on the team, along with Luis Gil and Wil Trapp, to have capped at the senior team level.

In November, he became the first active collegian since 1995 to receive a cap for the U.S. Men's National Team when he came on in the 76th minute in a friendly against Ireland in Dublin.

A 2014 MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist and NSCAA/Continental Tire First Team All-American, Morris started all 15 games in which he played last season for Stanford tallying four goals, 14 points and a team-high six assists.

Stanford was awarded team and individual honors as part of the 2014 Gladiator by SGI/NFHCA Division I National Academic Squad, as announced by the organization Monday.

The Cardinal was well-represented with 10 honorees, including Maddy Belin, Clemence Couteau, Dulcie Davies, Shannon Herold, Alex McCawley, Elise Ogle, Kasey Quon, Sydney Shaw, Fran Tew and Hannah Thiemann.

Quon and Thiemann complete their collegiate careers as four-time recipients of the honor.

To be recognized as an Academic Squad member, a student-athlete must achieve a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.30 through the first semester of the 2014-15 academic year.

In addition, Stanford was honored for its collective team GPA as a 2014 National Academic Squad. The National Academic Team Award recognizes those institutions that achieve a minimum GPA of 3.0 during the first semester of the 2014-15 academic year.
