Young Harris College's Dani Fischer has been selected to the NCAA Division II All-America second team by the United Soccer Coaches.

It is the first All-America honor for Fischer after he was named to the All-Southeast Region first team by the United Soccer Coaches earlier this week.

Fischer, a junior defender from Bruck an der Leitha, Austria, was named to the All-Peach Belt Conference team for a second time in 2019. Fischer, who was named  the PBC Defender of the Week once in 2019, scored twice - both game-winning goals - and added two assists this year. Fischer anchored the Mountain Lion defense which recorded seven shutouts in 2019.

The Mountain Lions, who are currently ranked ninth in the United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division II Coaches Poll, finished the season at 12-5-0 as they claimed the program's fifth Peach Belt regular season title.  YHC earned its fifth trip to the national tournament in the last six years as they earned the No. 6 seed in Super Region 2.
