Edward Quill, a 2015 graduate of George Mason High School, made history as a 2014-15 Soccer All-American Scholar by the National Soccer Coaches of America Association. He is the first Mason athlete to do so and the only Virginian awarded with the honor this year.

Earlier in the year Quill became the second athlete in the school’s history to be named Virginia’s All-State 2A Male Athlete of the Year.

He has been a four-year starting defensive player for the Mustangs, three of those years leading the team to the state championship as captain.

Quill has been named first team All-District, All-Region, All-State and was both the District and Regional Player of the Year for the 2014-15 year. He was awarded the Arnold Siegfried Memorial Scholarship by George Mason and will attend Virginia Tech in the fall, where he hopes to play for the club program.
