2011 Recruiting Class Announced
The Southern Polytechnic State University Men’s Soccer program announces the signing of 11 student athletes to it’s 2011 recruiting class. After back to back Southern States Athletic Conference Regular Season Championships and Sweet 16 Appearances, the Southern Poly Hornets have placed themselves as one of the top NAIA schools in the Southeast. These 11 recruits come from many different backgrounds and will help the Hornets maintain the level of competitiveness that they are used to.
This is by far the most experienced recruiting class that has been brought in to Southern Poly since it's inception in 2007. The class includes a number of high level transfers and Georgia youth players who can play numerous positions. “We are starting a tradition of excellence here at Southern Poly and I feel that with the addition of this recruiting class, we are continuing to move in the right direction,” said Head Coach, Kom Momeni. Three of the signees are from Georgia Perimeter College. They were all instrumental in the 2009 season which saw the Jaguars lose in the National Championship final match. Another of the recruits has represented his country (Northern Ireland) in Youth International play, while a transfer GK was the starter for a rival NAIA school.
