Railsplitters Announce New Additions To 2011 Men's Soccer Roster

HARROGATE, TN - Lincoln Memorial University Head Soccer Coach Helio D'Anna announced this week the addition of four players for the 2011 fall roster.

John "Brady" Seehorn, a 6'6" keeper from Dalton, Georgia and Yuri Passos, a 5'9" midfielder from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil both signed National Letters of Intent to play next season for the Railsplitters.  Seehorn attended Christian Heritage High School and played his prep career under his father John Seehorn.  While on the high school level, Brady was a GISA All-Conference and GISA All-State selection while earning 2010 MVP and All-Area Northwest Georgia.  The younger Seehorn also competed on the club level with Carpet Capital Soccer Club and was a member of the State Club Champions.  While attending Lincoln Memorial University he will be majoring in accounting.

"Brady is a pure talent as a keeper," says LMU Head Coach Helio D'Anna.  "He is big and strong, agile and has a great arm span.  The future in the net at LMU looks bright and we are thrilled to have him."

Also signing an NLI was Yuri Passos.  A transfer student from University of Estadio de Sa in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Passos will be majoring in business while attending Lincoln Memorial University.  Passos has been a member of Confianca FC soccer club and is the son of Luiz Fernando and Lilian Passos.

"Yuri is very technical, smart and aggressive," said D'Anna.  "He brings a lot of experience with him to our program and is both a playmaker and scorer.  He also has defensive punch at the midfield position.

Other additions to the Railsplitter program for the 2011 season include Gus Rivera, a 5'8" defender/midfielder who will come to Lincoln Memorial University from Knoxville, Tennessee's Catholic High School and Phil Roulier, a 6'1" midfielder also from Catholic High School in Knoxville.  Rivera will be majoring in Physical Therapy while attending LMU and is the son of Mark and maria Rivera, while Roulier will be a Marketing major and is the son of David and Gale Roulier.

"Gus is quick, smart and reads the game well," says D'Anna.  "He can be a full back making runs from the back as well as and outside mid.  He is also capable of playing the defensive mid position.  He sould do well at LMU.  Phil has a college body and is big, strong and athletic.  He does well in the air but also has very good touch and skills.  We expect him to do great things while at LMU."

The Railsplitters finished the 2010 season with a 10-6-1 record and lost five seniors to graduation.  Coach D'Anna is expected to sign several more additions to the roster in the upcoming weeks.
