Men's Soccer Sign Legacy!

OCU Men's soccer signed another recuit for the 2010 class, but the first legacy in OCU soccer.  Jake Morrison, a graduate of Miami Trace High School signed his letter of intent to play at the same school his father did 27 years ago.  His father was a team captain, something which Coach Murton sees in his son.  "Jake is going to come in and be a major part of the team right now, but I can see him stepping into a leadership roll as he matures and becomes more confident," mentioned Coach Murton.

Jake was the Pathers MVP in 2009 and a team captain after transferring there for his senior year from Mansfield Christian.  Jake scored 6 goals as a defender and recieved 1st Team All-League honors and 2nd Team All-Region honors.  During the spring he helped lead Grove City Magic FC to the Avon Lake Tournament Championship.

OCU has now signed seven new recruits to add to a team that finished 17-6-1 and 3rd in the nation in 2009.  The regional champs will open play on Sept. 2nd against St. Catherine's College.
