Bo Godwin was the recent recipient of the Coaches' Achievement Award. Godwin was a team leader this season both on and off the field.

Austin Savage was named the Most Valuable Player and the Offensive Player of the Year recently. Savage finished the year with eight goals and four assists for 20 points. Savage scored the most points (20) by at Tiger since the 2006 season when Dane Richards scored 31 points.
Savage finished his career with five career game-winning goals. He had a hat trick on October 16 as he scored three goals in the first half in the Tigers' 5-0 win over Gardner-Webb.
