Pfeiffer forward Nathan Regis was voted the 2015 Conference Carolinas Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Year, while Lees-McRae's James Abraham and Erskine's CJ Cluck were named the Conference's Defensive Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year, respectively. In addition, Pfeiffer's Bob Reasso was tabbed the Coach of the Year, the conference announced today.
Regis, a junior from Arima, Trinidad & Tobago, had a record-breaking season for the Falcons in 2015. On October 28, Regis broke the all-time record for most career goals as he notched his 50th career strike in just his 56th career match. On Nov. 3 against Barton, Regis topped the single season record for most goals that stood since 1965 as he recorded his 23rd tally of the year. He leads the nation in goals (23), goals per game (1.28) and total points (51).
A senior from Maidstone, England, Abraham appeared and started in 14 matches for the Bobcats. He anchored a defensive unit that ranked second in the conference with seven shutouts and only gave up 26 goals on the year.
Cluck, a goalie, played in all but 40 minutes between the pipes for the Fleet as the Greenville, S.C. native registered 83 saves, a 74-percent save percentage and two shutouts in the regular season.
In his third year at the helm for Pfeiffer, Reasso earned his first led the Falcons to a perfect 17-0 regular season and became just the 40th coach in NCAA history to record 400 career wins. After inheriting a 1-15 team, Reasso led his squad to a No. 1 national ranking for four consecutive weeks and a school-record for most wins in a season. Pfeiffer is the only team in the nation that hasn't lost or tied this season.
Joining Regis on the list of first-team forwards is teammate Jaime Siaj and the Limestone duo of Gui Machado and Harry Cooksley. Martim Galvao of Pfeiffer, and Williams Picoux and Tyler Agiovlassitis of Limestone made up first-team midfielders.
On the defensive side, Abraham was joined by Limestone's Lalaina Randriamanantena and Pfeiffer's Cristobal Allendes as first-team defenders, while Tom Godfrey of Limestone was the first-team goalie.
