Huntington University Men’s Soccer Coach Russ Lawson has announced that South Adams High School standout Adam McLaughlin has signed a letter of intent to join the Forester program this fall.
As a senior captain, McLaughlin helped lead the Starfires to their best record in school history and the school's first sectional championship. His abilities earned him First Team All-Conference honors in each of the past three seasons. In his final season, McLaughlin was in the top 10 in the state in both goals scored (31) and assists (15) both of which are school records. He also will graduate holding South Adam's all-time record for goals scored in a career with 50 and career assists with 27. McLaughlin also was a member of the Citadel FC the past two years.
“The coaching staff is thrilled that Adam has decided to continue his playing career at Huntington,” says Coach Lawson. “His pace and finishing ability will enable him to make a smooth transition to the speed of the collegiate game. He has the versatility to play either flank as well as up top.”
McLaughlin will make an impact off the field as he will enter as a HU Honor student studying Youth Ministries. He is the son of Joy and Todd McLaughlin from Berne, IN.
Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts college located in Huntington, IN with an enrollment of approximately 1100 students. Athletically, HU competes in fourteen NAIA intercollegiate sports for both men and women and is a member of the Mid-Central Conference.
