Thursday, August 22, 2013

MACON, Ga. - The 2013 Atlantic Sun Men's Soccer season begins on Friday, Aug. 30th and as a preview, the A-Sun is taking a look at some of the top returning student-athletes in the conference.

Today, the A-Sun office looks at the top returning leaders for assists per game. Despite playing in only seven games last year due to injury, Mercer's Joey Heavner still racked up five assists in seven games for a 0.71 assists/game average.

Heavner's teammate Ryan King sits tie or second with ETSU's David Geno, the A-Sun 2012 Player of the Year, with an average of 0.40 assists per contest last season. North Florida's Jean Rivaroli and ETSU's Blaike Woodruff round out the top-five returners.
