Media, fans, and opponents recognized the outstanding performances of the boys with a number of the league’s most coveted awards.
Max Stiegwardt was selected to the NPSL National Best XI. This is in addition to his All-Region and All-Conference selection and is no surprise given the classy midfielder’s sterling 2018 season. He scored 4 goals and chipped in with 5 assists, but his impact was so much more than that. In his 9 appearances, the Crows won 8 and drew 1 with a phenomenal +26 goal difference in those games.
Will Kidd was selected to the NPSL Midwest Region Best XI. This is in addition to his All-Conference selection and the hardworking winger scored 5 goals and did so much more than pure goalscoring. His work rate was unmatched on both the offensive and the defensive side of the ball. And he had a knack for turning games, like he did when he provided the assist for Juan Louis to win the critical late season match against VSLT FC.
Max Kent was an All-Conference selection. The cultured defender was the lynchpin of the defense and a critical part of the Crows’ possession-based attack.
Head Coach Adam Pribyl was recognized as the North Conference’s best coach as he led the Crows to an undefeated regular season, one of only five clubs nationally to do so. Further, while others in the conference brought in players from around the country to build their teams, he did it with only players from the Twin Cities.
