McCallie School’s Arturo Rocha has been named an All-American by the National Soccer Association of America for the 2012 season. Rocha, a four-year starter for the Blue Tornado, has been a pivotal player over that period.

Rocha was also named the NSCAA Player of the Year in Tennessee.

A two-time All-South and four-time All-State player, Rocha scored 18 goals with 17 assists as a senior in 2012. He was also named Chattanooga Times Free Press Best of Preps Player of the Year.

"This was one of Arturo's goal when he came to McCallie," head Coach Tony Meyers said. "He has worked hard on his game to become a better player, and it has paid off for him. Arturo's ability to finalize in the final third and his vision to find teammates were true gifts to coach." 

Rocha is now continuing his soccer career at Lee University.

All of the All-Americans will be honored with a luncheon at the National NSCAA Convention in Indianapolis in January.
