The Mount Vernon Nazarene College men's soccer team has added two more recruits to the Cougars' roster for the 2001 season with the addition of Chris LeVeck and Acori Ross.
LeVeck, a forward from Tipp City, Ohio, will join MVNC after a three-year absence from competitive soccer. As a four-year varsity letterman who graduated from Bethel High School in 1998, LeVeck was a three-time All-Clark County selection and a one-time All-Ohioan.
"Chris comes to us with excellent club experience and following an outstanding high school career," said MVNC head coach Paul Furey. "He is an intelligent player with good skill, and I am anxious to see how he will contribute to our program. Potentially, he can be a very good college player, but it will depend on how long it takes for him to return to top form after being away from the game competitively for three years."
Ross, a forward from Trinidad, West Indies, will also join the Cougars after recently finishing high school. He led his school to two league titles and was selected to the All-League Team. He also played on both his local club team and the national under-20 team.
"Acori's club experience will definitely prepare him for college soccer," said Furey. "He is a skillful, crafty player who will contribute to our scoring depth up front. We are glad to have him."
"These two players are both very talented," Furey added. "They will help us as we look to build on the success of the past four seasons."
The Cougars are coming off a 16-7-1 season in 2000. The team advanced to the National Christian College Athletic Association National Tournament for the third straight year where MVNC finished third. The Cougars have posted a 64-28-4 record over the last four seasons.
