Oxford’s Morgan O’Connor named Allstate All-American

Allstate released its yearly list of the top-100 high school soccer players in the country on Tuesday. Among the names was a familiar Oxford face.

Oxford’s Morgan O’Connor was named to the Allstate All-American girls soccer team on Tuesday. One of 50 girls from around the nation recognized for her outstanding high school performances, O’Connor can add it to her growing trophy case that already included a Mississippi State player of the year title.

“It wasn’t even on my radar,” O’Connor said. “I really didn’t know what it was so I wasn’t looking or waiting for it at all. I was just thankful to be recognized. I knew a couple other of the girls that were named, just from playing with them before. So it was really cool to have all our names recognized together.”

A junior, O’Connor lead Oxford in goals (34) and points (75) on the season, helping carry the team to their 18-2-1 record on the season. For her Oxford career, which began in 2014, O’Connor totaled 141 goals and 55 assists.

“One of the most exciting things we can do in the sports world is identify future game changers before they become household names and empower them through this recognition,” said Pam Hollander, Allstate’s vice president of consumer marketing,” said Pam Hollander, Allstate’s vice president of consumer marketing.

Despite the second-round playoff exit to Northwest Rankin this past year, it’s quite the successful final season for O’Connor as a Charger.

Morgan will be graduating high school a year early to enroll at Ole Miss and get started on her college soccer career.
