Senior Isaac Kannah (Plymouth, Minn./Prairie Seeds Academy) of the NIU men’s soccer team was named to the All-Mid-American Conference First Team, the league office announced Thursday.

Kannah led the Huskies with four goals, tied for ninth in the MAC, and four assists while starting 16 games.

“I’m pleased for Isaac, this is a very well deserved award for him,” said NIU head coach Eric Luzzi. “Our conference was extremely tough this year, I think we are the seventh-best conference in the RPI. That is a reflection of the high quality of the players and teams in the MAC right now. We have always felt that Isaac is one of the most dynamic players in college soccer. This award is a good reflection of that for Isaac.”

This is the third time Kannah has received all-league honors in his four-year NIU career. He was named to the All-MAC Second Team in both 2011 and 2013. He is NIU’s first three-time All-MAC honoree since Justin McGrane, who earned first team honors in 2005 and 2006 along with second team honors in 2004.

Kannah is the first Huskie to earn First Team All-MAC honors since 2011 when Jordan Godsey, Francis Otira and James Stevenson each received first team recognition. In four seasons at NIU, Kannah played in 74 matches, including 71 starts, recording 14 goals and 12 assists.
