Ex-CCU keeper Angevine signs with hometown team

Former Coastal Carolina men’s soccer standout Scott Angevine has signed a professional contract with Major League Soccer’s Sporting Kansas City.

Angevine, a goalkeeper, will be in uniform as a reserve when Sporting takes on French Ligue 1 champions Montpellier Hérault SC in an international friendly at 8:30 p.m. tonight, July 24 at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park.

“This is a dream come true,” said Angevine. “Signing a professional contract with my hometown team has always been a dream of mine since I started coming to games when I was a kid. This is truly a blessing.”

Angevine is the second Chant from head coach Shaun Docking’s 2011 squad to ascend the professional ranks, joining teammate Cyprian Hedrick on the Sporting Kansas City roster. Hedrick was the 30th overall pick of the 2012 Major League Soccer SuperDraft by Sporting.

“I have been training with Sporting for the past seven months, in addition to each summer while I was at Coastal, and it is great to see that my hard work and dedication have truly paid dividends. The blue collar, hardworking mentality I developed while playing for coach Docking has truly helped me get to this point in my career,” Angevine said.

Angevine, the Chants’ starting netminder from 2009-11, finished his career tied for the Chanticleer record with 16 career shutouts, including five during the 2011 season. In addition, Angevine currently ranks in numerous career CCU lists including third in matches played (57), second in matches started (54), second in minutes played (5,238), fourth in fewest goals allowed (56), second in goals against average (0.96), and sixth in saves (173).

In 2011 with Angevine in net the Chants posted one of the most successful campaigns in program history. The team finished 16th in the national poll, had an 18-4-0 record, won the Big South regular season championship and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

In addition, Coastal defeated No. 16 VCU and No. 21 Ohio State at home on back-to-back Sunday’s as part of a 16-1-0 run to close out the regular season after falling to eventual national runner-up UNC Charlotte in the season opener. The Chants also celebrated the program’s second-ever NCAA postseason home game with a 4-3 victory over Southern Conference champion Elon.

For his efforts, Angevine was named first team All-Big South Conference and an NSCA All-South Atlantic Region second team selection. He also twice garnered Big South Defensive Player of the Week honors (Sept. 13, Oct. 18) and was named to the VCU All-Tournament team.

In addition to his honors in 2011, Angevine was named to the Big South first team in 2009 and second team in 2010. He also garnered All-Big South Tournament plaudits in both 2009 and 2010.

The Kansas City, Mo., native graduated from Coastal after the fall 2011 semester with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
