Aaron May, a standout midfielder from Sunbury, Ohio, has signed a letter of intent to continue his education and his soccer career at Mount Vernon Nazarene College.
May, who played for Big Walnut High School as a sophomore and junior, spent four months training with the A-Junior Team in Homberg, Germany, during his senior year. As a junior at Big Walnut, he scored 23 goals and added nine assists as he was a First Team All-Ohio Capital Conference and All-District selection. He also received All-Ohio honors.
"Aaron is an important piece of our recruiting puzzle filled," said MVNC head coach Paul Furey. "He is a talented and quick midfielder who can create goals as well as score on his own. He has gained valuable experience playing overseas and being a part of a very competitive club team. Aaron is someone who I believe can help us right away."
Besides playing for Big Walnut and in Homberg, May has played with the highly-successful Columbus Blast club team since 1991. He is also a member of the Academic Honor Roll with a 3.5 grade point average.
The Cougars are coming off the best season in school history in which they posted a 19-8 overall record and finished third at the National Christian College Athletic Association National Tournament in their first-ever appearance. The team graduated four seniors but return a solid core of starters and key reserves which should lead to another exciting season in 1999.
