The news release was published in the end of 2019 and the awards will be presented at the USC Convention being held in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday, January 18, 2020.

“Arman Kovac has been a stellar student over the course of his 2 year tenure at East Central College. Along with his great sophomore season netting 15 goals for the Falcons and being named an NJCAA 3rd Team All-American, he has been honored for his hard work in the classroom,” states ECC Athletic Director, Jay Mehrhoff.  “It is great to see our student athletes do well on the field and in the classroom, Kovac is one of those exceptional student athletes who will do well in any of his future endeavors.”

Kovac will be pursuing a bachelor’s degree in business after spending his first two years studying education at East Central College. A number of four year school’s have Kovac on their radar and he hopes to make a decision where he will attend college for his last two years very soon.
