HARROGATE, TN - Lincoln Memorial University men's soccer players Lucas Pereira (Monte Siao, Brazil), Fernando Silveira (Brasilia, Brazil) and Michael Watkins (Statesville, NC) have been named as National Soccer Coaches of America All-Southeast Region honorees.

Fellow countryman and teammate Fernando Silveira was named to the NSCAA All-Southeast Region Second Team.  As a sophomore, Silveira tied for second on the team in goals scored this year (4) while recording five assists for 13 combined points which was a team best this season.
