Hammerheads Add Two UNCW Seahawks to Roster
Wilmington, NC - The Wilmington Hammerheads are pleased to announce that former UNCW soccer standouts Brock Duckworth and Devan Carroll are the most recent additions to the 2011 roster.
Out of Plano East High School in Plano, Texas, Duckworth was a four year starting goalkeeper for the Seahawks. He finished both his junior and senior season nationally ranked in goals against average and save percentage.
In 2009, Brock helped the Seahawks to their first NCAA tournament appearance, posted a 0.64 goals against average, and was ranked second nationally with a .886 save average. Duckworth is UNCW's all-time leader in goals against average with a 1.07.
Hammerhead Head Coach David Irving is pleased with the addition of Duckworth to his squad. "Brock had a great collegiate career and now has a great opportunity to make his mark at the professional level. I am confident that he will make his mark as a Hammerhead," said Irving.
A native of Jacksonville, NC and White Oak High School graduate, forward Devan Carroll was named the CAA's Player-of-the-Year in 2008 when UNCW won its first regular season title and hosted the conference championship. Carroll had ten goals in three seasons, 9 of those goals scored in 2008.
Coach Irving states, "Devan will be a very effective player for us with his quickness and ability to put the ball in the back of the net. He had a great pace and knows where the goal is."
The Hammerheads begin their season at home on April 16, 2011 against the Rochester Rhinos. Ticket prices for games are $10 of adults, $8 for seniors (65+), and $6 for children 12 & under. Special group ticket rates are available. Contact the Hammerhead office for more information.
