MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - The Mount Vernon Nazarene University men’s soccer team has landed another key recruit for the 2005 season with the addition of Adam Worrall, who has decided to further his education and continue his soccer career at MVNU.
Worrall, a midfielder from Gahanna, Ohio, recorded 12 goals and seven assists as a senior at Gahanna-Lincoln High School. A two-time Ohio Capital Conference selection, Worrall was named the OCC Player of the Year once and was also an All-District and All-State selection. He also received the Central Ohio Sportsmanship Award.
"Adam will be a key component to our program next year,” said MVNU head coach Paul Furey. "He has many of the attributes we need to help solidify our midfield. He is composed, intelligent, and technically sound in addition to having good vision. He also has good size to help us in the air. Adam has played in the back, and as he has shown with his club team, can produce goals up front. We are looking for him to be an asset right away for us.”
"Adam’s character is straight up and commendable,” Furey added. "He wanted to be at a Christian university because he holds his faith and values as important. He will be a nice addition to our campus community as well as to our soccer program.”
In addition to playing soccer at Gahanna-Lincoln High School, Worrall has also been a two-time OCC selection in basketball.
"There were several reasons why I chose MVNU,” said Worrall of his college choice. "I like the Christian environment. MVNU is also close to home, and the school has a good soccer program.”
MVNU finished the 2004 campaign with a 9-8-3 overall record. The Cougars also went 2-3-3 in the highly competitive American Mideast Conference South Division.
