SHREVEPORT- Senior Spencer Nickerson and freshmen Zachery Kidder were named to the 2012 Men’s Soccer All-SCAC team, the league office announced Wednesday. Both Nickerson and Kidder made the Second Team.

Spencer Nickerson, a native of Mesquite, Texas, started in all 19 games for the Gents. He tied the team lead for goals with five, including the game winning goal against Louisiana College in overtime.

“Spencer deserves at least 2nd team all-conference as he could have just as likely been on the first team all-conference,” Head Coach David Orr said. “Spencer always gives you his best on game day. He is a natural defensive talent. He reads the game well, is an exceptional tackler, and great distributor of the ball, and he displays an athleticism that is often unmatched.”

A native of Covington, Louisiana, Kidder was named to the Second Team as a first-year member of the Gents team. He played in 18 games and had two goals and two assists on the year.

It didn’t take long for Kidder to experience heroics, as he netted the game winning goal in the 1-0 overtime win against Schreiner University. That game the first of the year for the Gents and also the first of Kidder’s career. 

Coach Orr had nothing but praise for his player.

“When a freshmen is awarded all-conference selection, that tells you a lot about his talent. Zack is not the biggest guy on the field which can sometimes keep you from being recognized however, his play garnered the attention it deserved.” Orr added, “I’m proud of Zack and feel he can only improve.”

Spencer Nickerson ended his Centenary career with 10 goals, two being game winners in overtime. He was a common name for the Gents all four years, getting action in 65 of 66 games during his time at Centenary.

“Spencer’s decision to continue as a Gent at the Division III level is paying off with the accolades he so deserves,” stated Coach Orr. Our seniors deserve praise for their leadership during the transition. It is a testament to their exceptional character!”
