No shortcuts for Holt, Lowe's Senior CLASS winner

[AWARDS] Creighton goalkeeper Brian Holt -- all 5-foot-8 of him -- who set an NCAA record for the lowest goals-against average and helped lead the Bluejays to the Division I semifinals, was selected as the 2011 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award winner for Division I men’s soccer.

Holt broke the NCAA record by posting a 0.206 goals-against average to top the former mark held by Northern Illinois' Joe Zimka (0.207).

The award is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in NCAA Division I men’s soccer. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
“I am extremely honored to be chosen as the recipient of this fine award," said Holt. "My parents and other family members, instructors, advisers, friends and the Creighton community have influenced me as a person and guided me as I worked to reach my academic goals as a student and in becoming a caring and active member of my community."

The Omaha native has a 3.73 GPA in finance and entrepreneurship and is active in several different volunteer activities. He has volunteered at a camp for children with cancer, helped with collections for relief efforts in Haiti and assisted the homeless at Helping the Homeless and the Siena Francis House homeless shelter.
"Brian epitomizes the phrase ‘student-athlete’ by the way in which he conducts himself on and off the playing field,” first-year Bluejays coach Elmar Bolowich said. “Brian does not take any shortcuts to success. He is a leader by example and the most humble and supportive teammate.  He has an exceptional ability to focus on the task at hand, and his competitive spirit allows him to achieve extraordinary success.”
