Junior Tim Linden was the Ivy League Player of the Week Nov. 15 (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Junior Tim Linden and sophomore Scott Prozeller of the Harvard men’s soccer team have been elected captains for the Crimson for the 2011 season, Carl Junot, the Virginia B. and James O. Welch ’52 Head Coach for Harvard Men’s Soccer, announced Tuesday.

Linden, a defender who hails from Libertyville, Ill., saw action in 13 games during the 2010 season, starting six contests. He ranked fifth on the Crimson in scoring with four points (1-2-4) and boasted a career-high three points and scored the game-winning goal in double overtime at No. 18 Penn in the season-finale Nov. 13. Linden, who was honored as the Ivy League Player of the Week Nov. 15, also assisted on a goal at No. 10 Connecticut Sept. 11.
“I am very pleased with Tim's selection as captain,” Junot said. “He will be a great leader for a strong senior class.  Tim represents the needs of his senior class and is well respected by the entire team and coaching staff.  Tim finished the 2010 season in a great fashion scoring the game-winning goal against Penn.  I expect many more great things from Tim as a player and a leader.”
Prozeller, a native of Sudbury, Mass., was tabbed to the All-Ivy League second team after amassing seven points on three goals and an assist. He started all 16 games he appeared in and stood second on the team in points and with 23 shots. Prozeller, a midfielder, tallied a goal and handed out an assist in Harvard’s victory at Massachusetts Sept. 6, netted the game-winner against Yale Oct. 2, and scored off a free kick at No. 23 Princeton Oct. 24.
“Scott is a dynamic player and a natural leader,” Junot said. “This is demonstrated in his selection as captain in just his sophomore year.  When we recruited Scott, we expected him to be a leader on this team, so it is great to see him begin to realize his potential.  Scott has been captain and leader of many successful teams so this is a great step and honor for him.
“I look forward to sharing a vision of leadership with both of these young men,” Junot continued.

Harvard finished 5-7-5 overall during the 2010 season and was 2-3-2 in Ancient Eight contests.
