KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The UMKC men's soccer team inked three more players for the upcoming 2019 season. Ryan Khedoo, Garrett Nevshemal and Nate Temm will all embark on their UMKC soccer journeys when the 2019 campaign begins in August.
Khedoo, a junior college transfer from St. Louis Community College, scored three goals and contributed 12 assists on the 2018 season for the Archers.
"Ryan is a creative-attack minded flank player with great speed that can really stretch another teams back line," commented head coach Rick Benben. "He will be an exciting player for us with his one-on-one ability to get into the box from wide positions and should create goal scoring opportunities for himself as well as his teammates."
Nevshemal, a senior at Winterset High School, tallied 34 points with a school-record 22 assists during his junior season.
"Great technical midfield player who sees the field extremely well and is very comfortable on the ball," stated Benben. "He has the ability to find players underneath or behind opposing back lines with his short and long range passing abilities."
Temm, a senior from Christian Brothers College High School, received an All American nomination as well as First Team All-State honors during his last season. Temm would produce 46 points on a combined 20 goals and six assists from the 2018 campaign.
"Nathan is a dynamic forward who has great instincts around the goal," stated Benben. "He is a great competitor with a winning mentality. He will be a great addition to the team with his ability to always be dangerous to our opponents."
The Roos are currently going through a youth movement as the team recently lost 13 seniors due to graduation. During the final stretch of the season, the Roos pulled off victories in three of their four final games of the year, with a comeback win over Houston Baptist on senior day.
