College Cup hero Tracy leads Deacs
by Paul Kennedy, August 26th, 2008 8AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

1. Wake Forest (22-2-2).
Last year: The Demon Deacons won their first national title when they beat Ohio State, 2-1, in the Men's College Cup final.

This year: Marcus Tracy
, the Demon Deacons' star at the Men's College Cup, and All-ACC forward Cody Arnoux give Wake coach Jay Vidovich the best 1-2 punch of any attack in the country.

Sam Cronin
leads the midfield, while the emergence of Ike Opara should make up for the loss of Julian Valentin and Pat Phelan, two of college soccer's best defensive specialists.

The player with the toughest job will be goalie Akira Fitzgerald, who must replace Brian Edwards, who finished his Wake career with 44 shutouts.

Danny Wenzel
heads another solid freshman class that should give Wake the depth to return to the Men's College Cup.

8/29 VCU (Nike Carolina Classic)
8/31 Florida International (Nike Carolina Classic)
9/5 UCLA (Deacon Fall Classic)
