Araujo's team won the Savannah Tournament his junior year at IMG Academy and was a semi-finalist at the Disney Cup his senior year.

Duncan Foster: A 6-0 center midfielder and right back makes his way to C-N from Naphill, High Wycombe, UK. He graduated from Royal Grammar School in 2009 and transfers to C-N from Brunel University in London, England.

"Ross just came off a season in Wales being the top goal scorer in the country. Last year we had the best defense in the conference but we struggled to score goals," Moodie explained. "We definitely think he's the right man for the job."

While at Cereinion High, Frame and his team became Welsh National U18 Champions. Cardiff Met. became Welsh League Division 3 champions, BUCS League champions and won the BUCS Cup in 2012.

In 2011, his team won district and regional championships and made it to the state semifinals. The following season, the Hurricanes again won district and regional titles and were sub-sectional finalists. His senior year, Goddard led East Hamilton to yet another district and regional title, advancing to the state quarterfinals.

Goddard was named to the Honor Roll. He is the son of Jonathan and Lafaye Goddard and has not yet selected a major.

Johann Lucena Pereira: A 5-10 midfielder from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil transfers to C-N.

He attended St. Patrick's High School and graduated in 2012. Post-graduation, Lucena played Division I for IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana.

"This young man is going to have an immediate impact for sure with this squad," Moodie explained. "He brings with him a lot of experience and knowledge of the game of soccer and he definitely fits into our system of play."

He is the son of Monika Lucena and will be majoring in business. He will be joining brother and sophomore midfielder and defender Rurik Pereira as a Carson-Newman Eagle.

Jaschin Nicolai Noll: A 6-1 striker and midfielder from Esens, Niedersachsen, Germany signs with C-N. Noll graduated from Niedersächsisches Internatsgymnasium Esens where he played for Bruno Mönk.

In 2011, he scored 13 goals in 13 games and was the leading scorer in the 7th division. That year, his team went on to win the Sparkassencup. In 2013, he was elected by the fans as the Player of the Season.

"He's very disciplined; he's very organized. He likes the philosophy that we have here and the style of play that we have at Carson-Newman," said Moodie.

Son of Liane Hesselnfeld-Jost, Noll intends to receive his Master's in Business Administration. 

Kristian Speake: A 5-10 left back and midfielder of Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, UK transfers to C-N. He played for Christian Edwards at Sir Thomas Picton School. He transfers to C-N from Cardiff Metropolitan University.

"Speake is a very strong left-footed player," explained Moodie. "It wouldn't surprise me to see this young man get on the score sheet throughout the season as a defender."

Son of Susan and Nigel Speake, Kristian will be entering the Master's program for Business Administration.

Teddy Vickers: A 5-5 midfielder out of Franklin, Texas, Vickers played for J. R. Lee at Franklin High School and graduated in 2013.
