OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA/Ole Miss Athletics) – Recognizing one of the most prolific scoring seasons in the history of Ole Miss soccer, Rebel midfielder CeCe Kizer has been named the program’s first-ever All-American, garnering Third Team honors from the United Soccer Coaches.


Establishing herself as one of the most dangerous attacking players in the nation, Kizer finished the regular season with 16 goals, topping the SEC and ranking third nationally.

The junior proved to be an all-around playmaker, ranking second on the team with seven assists on the year. In all, Kizer’s 39 total points were good for the second most in the nation at the conclusion of the regular season.

Kizer’s 16 goals and 39 points in 2017 both tied for the fourth most in a single season in the history of Rebel soccer. The production is nothing new for the junior, she currently ranks fifth all-time in career goals at 35, while her 84 career points is good for sixth-most in program history.

Kizer is one of eight SEC players to receive an All-American nod, joining South Carolina’s Grace Fisk and Savannah McCaskill, Vanderbilt’s Stephanie Amack, Texas A&M’s Mikaela Harvey, Mississippi State’s Catalina Perez, Tennessee’s Katie Cousins and Florida’s Gabby Seiler.
