MOC men's soccer players earn CVAC accolades

Reid Clewis and Brandon Mills earned first-team honors, Chris Roush was named to the second team and Chris Jasso earned honorable mention as Mount Olive placed four players on the 2005 All-Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference Men's Soccer Team.

Clewis, a senior forward from Wilmington, N.C. (New Hanover HS), is tied for second in the CVAC with 10 goals. A two-time CVAC Player of the Week this season, Clewis opened the season with a goal in each of the Trojans' first five matches in 2005. Clewis was a second team selection in 2004.

Mills, a junior defender from Swansboro, N.C. (Swansboro HS), moved to sweeper this year after playing outside back in his first two seasons. Mills, who earned CVAC Player of the Week honors during the season, helped lead the Trojans to seven shutouts and the second-lowest goals against average in the conference.

Roush, a sophomore goalkeeper from Hubert, N.C. (Swansboro HS), ranks second in the CVAC with a 0.94 goals against average. Roush helped limit 11 of 19 opponents to one goal or less. An All-CVAC honorable mention last season, Roush was named Most Valuable Player of the 2004 CVAC Men's Soccer Tournament.

Jasso, a junior midfielder from Winston-Salem, N.C. (East Forsyth HS), was one of four Trojans to start all 19 matches this season. Jasso finished with one goal and three assists this season. Jasso earned All-Tournament honors at the 2004 CVAC Tournament.

Mount Olive posted an 11-6-2 record in 2005 and tied for third in the CVAC standings with a 6-3-1 mark. The Trojans fell to Pfeiffer in the quarterfinal round of the 2005 CVAC Tournament.
