Huntington University men’s soccer coach Russ Lawson has announced that Granville Christian High School standout, Kyle Geiss, has signed a letter of intent to play soccer at HU this fall. During his four years in a Lion uniform, Kyle helped lead his team two state championships and two state runner-ups. Geiss is striker who has the ability to break down defenses with his speed, head and first touch. He tallied 34 goals and 20 assists during his senior campaign and was named to the Central Ohio Buckeye Conference First Team.

“We are very excited that Kyle will continue his career at Huntington,” says Lawson. “He is a tall, strong and athletic striker who is tenacious and has a solid shot.” Kyle plays club ball for NASA XTABI based out of the Columbus, Ohio area. Last year he amassed 20 goals to help his team capture a Mid-Ohio Premiere League Championship and tournament titles at the Xenia and Queen City Tournaments.

Geiss will enter HU as a Presidential Scholar and plans to major in Biology/Pre Med. He is the son of David and Christine Geiss from Granville, Ohio.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 14 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past twelve years, Huntington has produced 70 NAIA All-America honors and 186 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations.
