COLUMBUS, Ohio Tiffany Cameron, a forward on the Ohio State women’s soccer team, has been named a second team All-American, the NSCAA announced Friday. Cameron becomes the eighth Buckeye to garner All-America honors.

“I’m truly blessed to receive this honor,” Cameron said. “I worked really hard from the time I was a freshman until now and I’m proud of what we have been able to accomplish as a team. My coaches and teammates helped me get to where I am today and I can’t thank them enough for helping me achieve this award.”

Cameron, a two-time first team All-Big Ten selection, leaves Ohio State as the Buckeyes’ all-time leading goal scorer with 40 and tallied 96 career points, also the most in school history. The Mississauga, Ontario, native led the Buckeyes with 21 goals in 2012, shattering the previous school record of 13.

“I’m really proud of what Tiffany has done over her four years,” Ohio State head coach Lori Walker said. “She set a goal a year ago to score 20 goals and had the courage to put it out there. She changed her training, worked toward that goal and the support she received from her teammates, specifically in the attack from Lauren Granberg and Michela Paradiso, helped set her up for this. Hopefully Tiffany will continue to progress to her next phase with the Canadian National Team.”

Cameron’s nine game-winning goals were the most in the country and her 19 career game-winners are tied for fourth-most in Big Ten history. The senior added five assists on the season to tally 47 points, also an Ohio State record.

The Buckeyes finished 2012 with a 16-4-2 record and advanced to their fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament.
