Soccer standout Michael Releford, son of Andre Releford, took home top honors as the Lynchburg College athletic department honored its top-student-athletes at the annual athletic banquet.

Michael Releford earned the Male Senior Award.

He had a storied career in goal for the LC men's soccer team.

In six games against the best opponents in the nation, he allowed just five goals.

An All-ODAC and All-State first-team honoree in each of his three seasons, Releford was named the ODAC Player of the Year in 2012.

He also garnered first-team All-Atlantic Region accolades as a junior.
