Harvell Named Men’s Soccer Outstanding Spring Player

DOVER, Del. – Wesley College men's soccer head coach Steve Clark announced on Thursday afternoon that rising junior Chris Harvell has been named the Wolverines Most Outstanding Spring Player.

"CJ has a tremendous work ethic, in the gym and on the field," said Clark.  "He is now realizing the rewards for that effort as he is stronger, quicker and better understands his position. CJ has also worked to help teammates in their pursuit of greater fitness as well continuing to push himself to be a better player."

Recruited as a defender, Harvell, who tallied a pair of goals along with an assist in 2013, will see more of an attacking role in 2014. An exercise science major from Hamilton, N.J., Harvell also was credited with the game-winner against Penn State Berks and assisted on Will Mileski's overtime goal against Marymount.

"The coaching staff, and his teammates, is delighted to see CJ elevating his game. He is trying to be the best he can be, but committed also to help the program and play whatever role is asked of him. I love that in a student-athlete," acknowledges Coach Clark, who is entering his 25th season at the helm of the Wolverines.

Wesley opens the 2014 season at the Cabrini College Tournament and will take on Shenandoah in the opener on August 29.  The Wolverines will then play either the host Cavaliers or Penn State Brandywine the following day.
