Friday, May 2, 2008

SHREVEPORT – Three more incoming freshman have agreed to play for the Centenary men’s soccer team this fall, including one local product. Head coach David Orr has signed Connor Adams (Frisco, Texas), Micah Goodwin (Shreveport) and Kyle Kling to a National Letter of Intent.


Adams played his prep career at Frisco High School and played club soccer for the Dallas Texans. At Frisco he earned first team, offense MVP and utility Player of the Year of his district, along with garnering first team all-state honors. He helped his club team to a No. 1 national ranking and a 83-0 record.


“Connor is a good versatile player and we are eager to see what he brings this fall,” said Orr. “I’m excited he will be a part of the Centenary men’s soccer team and he should make and immediate impact.”


Goodwin played soccer at Caddo Magnet and helped his team to its first undefeated district record in eight years. In 2008 he was named all-city, defensive MVP and second team all-district.


“I’m happy we signed another local product for 2008,” said Orr. “Micah has good athleticism and is an intelligent player. He will be a good addition to our squad and I look for nothing but good things from him.”


Kling is a four-year letterwinner and a two-year captain out of Tara High School. He scored 16 goals and helped his team to a 2006 Division II regional. In the last two seasons, Kling and his teammates were Bi-District champions in 2007 and 2008 they were semifinalist in district 7-4A.


“We are really excited that Kyle picked Centenary for his college choice,” said Orr. “He will add depth at all positions. In high school he was a defender, midfielder and forward and he should play all three spots.”
