The National Soccer Coaches Association of America has named Warren High School senior Daniel Szczepanek to its 2012 High School All-American Team.

Last fall, Szczepanek, an attacking midfielder with amazing all-around skill, led the Blue Devils to the state championship — making Warren the first Lake County team ever to win the IHSA tournament in that sport.

His junior season at Warren, he helped the Blue Devils advance to the Final Four at state.

Next year, he’ll be playing soccer at Marquette in Milwaukee.

Warren’s entire soccer team will be honored for their state championship on Saturday, Jan. 12, during halftime of the Blue Devils’ boys basketball game against Deerfield.
