KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech soccer coach Matt Munhall announced the recent additions of Jacob Carpenter and James Goheen to the men’s soccer program. The duo heads to Oregon Tech after helping Henley High School to a runner-up finish in the 4A OSAA State championship in 2013.
“We are excited to have both of these men join our program this coming fall and we expect both of them to challenge for starting roles on game day,” Munhall said.
Carpenter, a 5-9 forward, played four seasons for the Hornets earning Skyline Conference Player of the Year honors as well as earning First Team All-State honors this past season.
"Jacob is a tremendously hard worker who is always seeking to develop his game,” said Munhall. “Although he led the attack for his high school team with 18 goals and 11 assists, he is a versatile player who doesn't care where he plays, as long as he is on the pitch.”
Jacob is the son of Bryan and Gail Carpenter and plans to study small business management beginning this fall at Oregon Tech.
Goheen, a 5-11 goalkeeper, played four seasons for HHS and earned back-to-back first team Skyline Conference accolades in 2012 and 2013 to go with Second Team All-State honors the past two seasons. Goheen recorded 12 shutouts in goal last season while leading the Hornets to a 4A championship appearance in 2013.
“James is a naturally gifted goalkeeper who has tremendous reactions and keeps his defense organized,” mentioned Munhall. “He was an anchor for Henley in the net and we can't wait to see what he brings at the next level.”
James is the son of David Goheen and Sarah Freitas and will major in Biology at Oregon Tech beginning this fall.
Oregon Tech begins its 2014 campaign with back-to-back contests on the road versus Cal Pac members Simpson University and Menlo College both contests played in Redding, Calif. on August 23rd and August 25th.
