King also earned a spot on the NSCAA All-America third team, making her one of eight players to appear on both the NSCAA All-America and NSCAA Scholar All-America teams in 2012.

 

Florida has placed a player on the NSCAA Scholar All-America first team 10 times since 1998. In addition, Florida was recognized as a NSCAA Women’s Team Academic Award program after posting a 3.37 grade point average for the 2011-12 academic year.

 

King was the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year, placing her on the All-SEC first team. She started every match at holding midfield and was second among the Gator field players with her average of 85.4 minutes per match. She finished fifth among the 2012 Gators with a career season-high 14 points. King also had career-highs for goals (5) and assists (4). Four of her goals came on consecutive Sundays in September, including heading in the game-winner versus New Mexico and providing UF with the tying goal at Auburn. She earned her second consecutive spot on the SEC All-Tournament team in 2012.

 

A student-athlete must be a junior or above with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average, start more than 50 percent of all matches and be a significant contributor to the team to be nominated for NSCAA Scholar All-America honors.
