The men’s soccer program at Toccoa Falls College is pleased to announce the addition of two players to its 2014 recruiting class. Joining the TFC program in August will be goalkeeper Matthew Moody and forward Kofi Mensah.
Goalie Matthew Moody graduated from Colquitt County High School in Bainbridge, Georgia, and will add depth to the keeper position at TFC. The 6’4″ goal was a four-year scholar athlete, and helped to lead CCHS to a region championship as a senior in Georgia high school’s largest classification. Matthew was named to the second team all-region for his efforts in net.
At Colquit County, Moody was coached by Jimbo Jarvis and Eric Wingate. Moody gained club experience with the prestigious Southern Soccer Association’s Chelsea South Georgia where he was coached by Robert Peterson.
Coach Rob Worsley said, “Matthew is going to come in and add important depth at keeper. We will graduate Elijah Smith after this season, so we’ll look to Matthew to take over in 2015. We are excited about him being a part of this team, and what he adds to TFC both on and off the field.”
Matthew is the son of Bill and Belinda Moody, and plans to major in Youth Ministry at TFC.
Kofi Mensah is a goal-scoring forward from New Manchester High School is Douglasville, Georgia. Born in Ghana, Kofi and his family immigrated to the United States in 2007.
At New Manchester High School, Mensah scored 26 career goals and added five assists. He was the team captain his junior and season seasons, and was named all-region honorable mention and team offensive MVP. Mensah played under Coach Matthew White at NMHS.
“Kofi is a very athletic player who is physical, fast and has great shot,” said Coach Worsley. “He will add depth to an already talented group of forwards that we have this year, and we anticipate that he will make an immediate impact playing up top.”
Kofi will major in pre-med at TFC, and he is the son of Victor Lartey (pictured above with Kofi and Coach Worsley) and Faustina Owusu-Adu. Kofi’s younger brother, Kwadwo, also plays soccer at New Manchester High School. The Mensahs attend Ebenezer Presbyterian Church.
