KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Three Covenant men's soccer players were selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-South Atlantic Region teams, announced the organization on Wednesday. Snoopy Davidson was a second team choice, while Hunter Harrison and Joel Friesen garnered third team selections.
Covenant accounted for three of the six players from the USA South to be voted on one of the three teams.
Davidson adds this honor to his list of accomplishments this season. A senior from Rome, Georgia, Davidson was also named USA South Player of the Year and was voted to the CoSIDA Academic All-America second team. He finished the year leading the team with 12 goals and six assists, despite missing five matches due to an injury in late September and early October. Of his 12 goals, four were game-winners and he had a stretch of six straight matches in which he scored at least one goal.
Davidson led the Scots to their first USA South tournament championship and a berth into the NCAA tournament. He was named USA South tournament MVP after tallying three goals in three matches in the tournament.
Harrison, a senior from Greenville, South Carolina, earns all-region honors for a second straight year. A team captain, Harrison was the catalyst on the back line for the Scots. He helped lead Covenant to five shutouts before being injured for the rest of the season in mid-October. Harrison was also voted to the USA South All-Conference second team.
Friesen also put together a career year for the Scots. The senior from Waxhaw, North Carolina, scored seven goals and had four assists on the year. Of his seven goals, he had three-game winners. He achieved his first career hat trick in Covenant's 3-1 season-opening over Rutgers-Newark. Friesen was named to the USA South All-Conference first team and was a two-time USA South Player of the Week honoree earning the honor on Sept. 1 and Sept. 29.
