Frame named to All-American third team

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. – Carson-Neman's Ross Frame (Welshpool, Powys, United Kingdom) was voted to the 2013 men's soccer All-American third team by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.


"We are all really happy for Ross," Carson-Newman head soccer coach Richard Moodie said. "He definitely deserves the award."


Frame was one of two members of the South Atlantic Conference to earn All-American honors this season. He is the first C-N men's soccer All-American since 2008, and the program's 10th overall.


"I am delighted yet again," Frame said. "All of the honors do a lot to me, but the team effort and spirit this year has been the most important thing."


This fall, Frame put up 20 goals, three away from the school record, landing him the no. 5 spot in the nation and making him the fourth player in C-N history with 20 goals or more in a single season.


"Without the lads," Frame said, "I wouldn't have received any of these awards."


Frame's 11 assists on the season tie him for seventh in the nation.


"I'm so grateful for the chance to play for Carson-Newman," Frame said, "and am really proud of what we as a team have achieved this season."


Frame was a fundamental part of the team this season; Carson-Newman made program history this year by advancing to the final match of the national tournament, two rounds further than the previous record set in 2005.


"Ross is a great kid," Moodie said, "and we are looking forward to more out of him next season."
