Görres transferred from the University of Flensburg to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke in the United States in 2003 to study applied sciences and play on the college soccer team. He garnered PBC All-Conference, All-Region and All-State honors in his freshman season at Pembroke, and in his second year was an All-Conference, All-Tournament and first team All-American (NCAA Division II) pick, and was named to the NSCAA All-Southeast Region squad and the NSCAA/Adidas Scholar All-American squad.

Görres turned professional when he was drafted by the Richmond Kickers of the USL Second Division in the 2005 USL First Division College Draft. He has been ever-present for the Kickers since then; he was a USL2 All-League First Team selection in 2006, earned USL-2 All-League First Team honors and was a USL-2 Defender of the Year Finalist in 2008, and helped the Kickers to two USL Second Division championships in 2006 and 2009.[1]

He is currently the Player/Assistant Coach of the Richmond Kickers Pro Team, Assistant Coach for the U18 Academy of Richmond United and the Head Coach for the U10 Boys Richmond Kickers Elite.
