Stony Brook, N.Y. - Stony Brook men's soccer senior midfielder Leonardo Fernandes has been named the Big Apple Soccer Player of the Year, the New York area soccer website announced Tuesday. Fernandes was selected among a pool of candidates within the website's coverage area as well as athletes who originated from the area but are playing elsewhere.

Fernandes, who was named an All-American last month, had an outstanding 2012 season that saw him score nine goals and assist on seven others for a total of 25 points. Five of his nine goals were game-winners, and he assisted on game-winning goals three times. He was named 2012 America East Midfielder of the Year and first-team All-America East. He was also named to the America East Championship All-Tournament team for his outstanding play in helping the Seawolves reach the semifinals for the fourth consecutive season.

Stony Brook men's soccer's most decorated student-athlete, Fernandes wrapped up his Stony Brook career as the program's all-time leader in points with 79. He also is third in goals (31) and third in assists (17), and he ranks first in the program's Div. I history in each category. He is a three-time America East Midfielder of the Year and first-team All-America East recipient.
