Ferry '12 made his second appearance on the All-Mid-Atlantic Region squad, earning Second-team honors in 2010 and First-team honors in 2011. He anchored an outstanding defensive effort for the Red Devils again this fall, serving as the team captain for the past two seasons.

The Devils captured the conference title and the NCAA automatic bid with a 3-2 decision in the penalty-kick shootout. Ferry was the Devils' final shooter, converting the game-winner to secure the title.
The Red Devils allowed less than one goal per game in each of his four seasons, ranking third in the CC in 2011 with a 0.89 goals-against-average. The Red Devils tallied eight shutouts in 2011 and 33 over the last four years. The Devils finished 11-5-5 overall, advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Ferry was also named to the 2011 Centennial Conference All-Sportsmanship Team, announced on Thursday as well.
