The University of Las Vegas, Nevada men’s soccer team will return 10 of their starters from last season — a significant factor as they’ll look to participate in the Western Atlantic Conference and NCAA tournaments for the second year in a row.

The team’s hefty goals will depend heavily on the legs of senior, All-American forward Danny Musovski who took home WAC honors last season — including WAC tournament MVP — after missing five games due to a leg injury.

Musovski collected another accolade last week in being nominated for a second time to the prestigious Missouri Athletic Club Hermann Trophy’s watch list. He’s one of 31 men’s soccer candidates vying for the NCAA’s football award.

The Las Vegas News Network tracked down Musovski and UNLV head men’s soccer coach Rich Ryerson for their input on the upcoming season and what’s next for the senior.

The team begins season play against the University of Portland on August 25.
