Ashland (OH) High School seniors Kyle Brohm and Dustin Shafer have signed their letters of intent to play soccer at Huntington University this fall. The two were bookends on a back line which garnered tremendous respect throughout the state of Ohio last fall. During their senior years, Ashland tallied 16 shutouts while compiling a 19-3 record and a run all the way to the Elite 8 in the state tournament.
Coach Lawson notes “Dustin is a courageous defender with a tremendous heart and solid tackling ability which makes him a prototypical marking back. His success at Ashland has definitely developed his mental toughness.”
"We are also fortunate to have a quality individual such as Kyle commit to our program", adds Lawson. "He is a left back with excellent vision and skills. Kyle’s composure on the ball allows him to distribute well and when you combine that with his defensive ability, you can see why we are excited to have him on our back line."
"The world witnessed what a courageous and organized back line could accomplish this past summer with Italy winning the World Cup", commented Lawson. "I am anxious to add these two recruits to our defensive unit to bolster a promising backline that have the potential to frustrate and shutout opponents."
