SMU’s Eddie Munjoma named First Team All-American

FC Dallas Academy graduate and current standout SMU outside back Eddie Munjona has been named a First Team All-American by the United Soccer Coaches. Munjoma was previously named the American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year and was a Semifinalist for the MAC Herman Trophy.

Munjoma scored 12 goals and added 8 assists for the Mustangs this season. His 12 goals was SMU’s second-highest total and are a remarkable number for an outside back. Munjoma is the 17th Pony to be named to the First Team.

Munjoma has taken part in the FC Dallas summer college camps and is Homegrown eligible. With his fantastic senior season at SMU, he now tops my lists of college Homegrown signing candidates.

Additionally SMU’s Gabriel Costa was named a Third Team All-American. Costa scored 8 goals for SMU this year with 9 assists.

  1. Yep, this seems like a slam dunk signing here. Does Eddie play more on the left or right? I love the idea of being able to rotate Hollingshead, Nelson, Reynolds and Munjoma, and that is all assuming Reggie is gone. What crazy depth that would be.

    1. This season he’s been on the right. But in the Academy and when I’ve seen him with FCD during the summers he’s mostly been left. I think of him as left, but I actually tried to watch and guess which foot was his dominate last SMU game and I couldn’t really tell. Luchi likes versatility, so that’s a good thing.

  2. Would be a nice depth piece but would have to create room at RB. Even if Reggie gets sold next season we can loan him to a USL team or NTXSC.
