Janos Loebe, who played a vital role in Fordham University’s stunning success in the NCAA Division I tournament, Tuesday was named FrontRowSoccer.com’s men’s college player of the year for 2017.

The junior forward was honored as the top men’s player from the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area.

Loebe had a role in almost half of the Rams’ 33 goals, scoring seven and setting up another nine.

Moreover, he was a pillar during Fordham’s best post-season run ever as the Bronx college reached the quarterfinals for the first time, losing at the University of North Carolina, 2-1.

The 5-11, 165-lb. Janos teamed with his older brother, Jannik, a senior forward who tallied a team-high nine goals, to form a dangerous attacking duo.

“Besides being very good soccer players and technical players and good athletes, one of the real important aspects that they brought along with a couple of other players is just the high standard that they set for themselves, but also the other players,” head coach Jim McElderry said. “They expect to win and expect to do well. And if they don’t, they are not happy about it and they’re going to make changes to make it work.”

Unseeded Fordham recorded its first NCAA D-I tournament win in a 3-2 comeback victory over St. Francis Brooklyn in the opening round Nov. 16.

Then the Rams had to hit the road for the rest of the tournament — all in Atlantic Coast Conference country.

Fordham stunned the 11th-seeded University of Virginia, 1-0, in Charlottesville, Va. three days later.

The Rams pulled out an 8-7 shootout triumph after playing to a 2-2 draw at sixth-seeded Duke University in Durham, N.C. in the Sweet 16 Nov. 25.

Their run came with a 2-1 defeat at third-seeded UNC in Cary, N.C. Dec. 2.

On Monday, McElderry was named FrontRowSoccer’s men’s college coach of the year.
