You could say there was a heavy presence of local talent on this fallâ€™s menâ€™s soccer program at Rhode Island College.

Estrada and Asiedu learned earlier this week that their efforts and contributions did not go unnoticed by their contemporaries. Both were named to the Second Team All-Little East Conference.
