    Top 10 Israeli College Athletes of All-Time


Daniel Cukierman, 
University of Southern California

The University of Southern California men's tennis team finished the D1 2020 season ranked #1, with Israeli Daniel Cukierman (Tel Aviv, ISRAEL) at #1 in the country. This is the top US college achievement for Israeli men's tennis ever.  On April 28th, Cukierman was named All-American in both singles and doubles, completing an extraordinary year.


                Michael Kogan, Tulane University

Michael Kogan was recently elected to the Tulane University Athletics Hall of Fame for his tennis accomplishments.  He received 3 All-American awards in the years 2002-4, leading his team to 3 
C-USA Championships. He was the C-USA Conference player of the year all 4 years and took his team to the NCAA Championship tournament 3 years.  In his senior year, he reached both the NCAA singles final and the doubles final.

            Yuval Katz, University of Hawaii

    Yuval Katz led the University of Hawai'i men's volleyball team to consecutive NCAA Championship tournament appearances including a national runner-up finish in 1996, the same year he was named AVCA Player of the Year. He was also named AVCA Newcomer of the Year in 1995. A two-time All-American, he completed his career with 1,444 kills, a school-record 7.81 kills per set average, 100 service aces, and a hitting percentage of .394. He and his teammates created statewide frenzy, playing before numerous sell-out crowds while averaging more than 7,500 fans per match in 1996.                            


          Naama Shafir, University of Toledo

In 2011, Naama Shafir, a junior guard, poured in a career-high 40 points to lead the University of Toledo to victory in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament championship over USC. She was crowned the basketball tournament’s MVP. As an Orthodox Jewish woman, she had to walk home after the game in order to preserve the Sabbath.  Read more about Shafir in the article published by The Foward.
