Seniors Chris Jasso and Charles Williams both earned third team honors on the 2006 NSCAA Division II Men's Soccer All-Southeast Region Team, as selected by head men's soccer coaches in the region.

Williams, a defender from Richlands, finished his career as a two-time All-Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference selection, winning second team honors in 2004 and earning honorable mention this season. Williams, who was named CVAC Men's Soccer Player of the Week in the final week of the regular season, helped the Trojans post eight shutouts and limit opponents to a 1.24 goals against average. Williams scored three goals this season, including the game-winning goal in the 85th minute from 35 yards out in a 1-0 victory over Erskine in the Trojans' regular season finale.

The all-region award was the second this year for Williams, who was also named to the Daktronics All-Southeast Region second team.

Jasso, a midfielder from Winston-Salem, tied for third in the CVAC in total assists with eight and ranked fourth in the conference in assists per game. Jasso was named to this year's All-CVAC second team and earned honorable mention in his junior year. He helped Mount Olive finish 17th in the nation in scoring offense with an average of 2.60 goals per game. Jasso scored the game-winning goal in the fourth minute of overtime in the Trojans' 1-0 victory over regionally seventh-ranked St. Andrews.

Mount Olive posted a record of 12-8-0 overall and 5-5-0 in the CVAC. The Trojans reached the semifinals of the 2006 CVAC Tournament after defeating No. 2 seed and defending champion Belmont Abbey 1-0 in the first round. Mount Olive was ranked No. 8 in the year-end NSCAA Southeast Region Poll.
