"This is an incredible honor for Andrew and for Duke," Kerr said. "He is the epitome of the Duke student-athlete. He arrived at Duke as a midfielder but was needed by the team as a defender.  He played center back his first two seasons and as a junior he transitioned into a striker, leading the team and the ACC in scoring.  Perhaps the most impressive of Andrew's attributes is that he is an outstanding student and was recently named a first team Academic All-American.  Andrew is coachable, leads by example and will do whatever the team needs in order to be successful.  He is a wonderful, caring person and a joy to coach."

For his career, Wenger has started all 63 games, played all but 131 minutes in that span and registered 21 goals and 13 assists for 55 points.

After the 2011 season, he signed with MLS and is expected to be one of the first two players selected in Thursday's MLS SuperDraft. He also has been selected to train with the U.S. under-23 national team as it prepares for Olympic qualifying.
