Davidsson Is Second Junior College Transfer to Join FSC Men's Soccer Team
Head coach Ryan Sniegoski has added to his 2014 recruiting class with junior college transfer Kevin Davidsson. A native of Norrkoping, Sweden, he played last year as a freshman at Foothill College in California. He’s the 11th newcomer to the Florida Southern roster since March.
“I am excited to announce the newest addition to the Mocs soccer family,” said Sniegoski. “Kevin will be a solid addition to an already talented incoming class. He brings experience after playing for Foothill Community College last year as well as international experience in Sweden. Kevin can play a few different positions for us but will primarily be used as a wide player. Kevin played with current Moc Jonathan Radvogin, who only had great things to say about him as a player and teammate. The competition will be at an all-time high and I cannot wait to for preseason arrive.”
Playing as a midfielder for head coach Tom Liner at Foothill, Davidsson helped the Owls to a 14-4-5 record last year and advancement to the state tournament semifinals. They finished the season ranked #3 in the state poll and #6 in the final NSCAA national junior college poll. He previously played club soccer for Smedby AIS, and was part of that team’s second division squad. He also played for JB Gymnasiet in Sweden.
“When I heard that Florida Southern College was interested in me, I immediately made up my mind,” said Davidsson. “They offer a quality education, a good level of soccer, and a climate that is outstanding. I believe this is the kind of program that will take me to the next level and I believe this team can do great things in the upcoming years with good coaches and players. I can't wait to get started."
Davidsson is the second junior college transfer brought in by Sniegoski for 2014. The first was Michael Cortright, who joined the Moccasins this spring from Skagit Valley College in Washington.
