Two Liberty Flames have been selected to Big South All-Conference men's soccer teams, the conference announced this afternoon.

Selected by the conference's head coaches, midfielder Tim Harbison was named all-conference second team and midfielder Kevin Mendoza received honorable mention all-conference honors.  Forward Sachem Wilson was named to the Big South men's soccer All-Academic team.

Harbison receives his second consecutive all-conference honor, after being selected to the 2014 Big South All-Conference first team last season.

The two-time Liberty team captain was the only player to start every game, playing the most minutes of any Flames player this senior. He totaled six points, scoring three goals in 2015.

Harbison completed his career having started every game of his Liberty career. The Auburn, Ala, native started 74 consecutive matches.

Mendoza played in 15 games, starting 13 in his first season at Liberty. The midfielder compiled six points, netting two goals and recording two assists in 2015. He scored the game-winning goal in a 3-0 victory over VMI on Sept. 12.

The freshman from Mexico City, Mexico was one of four Flames to record three or more points in a game this season, scoring a goal and assisting on another in a 3-3 tie with Longwood on Oct. 31.

For the second consecutive year, Wilson was named to the conference's all-academic team for men's soccer. The Stow, Ohio native was Liberty's leading scorer with 15 points, netting six goals and adding three assists. It is the third consecutive year the forward has led the Flames in scoring.

Wilson, who already has graduated with a degree in communications studies, has been nominated for an Oxford University Rhodes Scholarship. He has been a member of the Big South Presidential Honor Roll in each of his previous three years at Liberty.
