Railsplitter Soccer Still Has Strong Brazilian Connection

HARROGATE, TN - Lincoln Memorial University Head Soccer Coach Helio D'Anna announced earlier this week the addition of two more players for the 2011 fall season.  Leonardo Germiniani, a 5'8" midfielder from Itajuba, (Minas Gerais) Brazil and Mario Pinto, a 5'11" forward from Uberlandia (Minas Gerais) Brazil are the latest to sign with the LMU men's soccer program for next season.

Having already added five new players for the upcoming season, Germiniani and Pinto could be the last additions to the 2011 roster baring any late signees that may materialize throughout the summer.

Germiniani is a product of Coffeyville Community College where he played for Head Coach Courey Feerer.  While with Coffeyville, Germiniani was named Jayhawk Conference Player of the Week and was a Phi Theta Kappa recipient.

"Leo is a great all around player and can seriously play any position," said Feerer.  "He's one of the best players I have had in ten years at this level.  He will no doubt make an immediate impact at LMU."

Pinto began his collegiate career at Centro do Triangulo University in Brazil and continues a long line of talented players that have been brought into the Lincoln Memorial University men's soccer program by Head Coach Helio D'Anna.

"Mario is extremelly skilled," stated D'Anna.  "A true lefty, he can finish with either foot and create as well as score.  He is very strong on the ball and can post up and turn.  He will fit in very well with the other players on our roster."

Although Germiniani is undecided as to what major he will pursue while attending Lincoln Memorial University, Pinto will seek a degree in Physical Education and Kinesiology.  Both will join their new Railsplitter teammates in early August for preseason conditioning.
