Huntington University soccer coach Russ Lawson announced the addition of Steffen Shannon to the 2008 roster. This Temple Christian senior is yet another solid piece to a very talented incoming class. Prior to his final season at Temple Christian, Shannon honed his skills at powerhouse Findlay High School, where he was named to the All-Conference and All-District teams his sophomore and junior seasons. While at Findlay, he had the privilege of playing in two state championship games, and he gained valuable experience leading his Pacesetter soccer club at the premier level in the US Youth Soccer Midwest Regional League.
“Steffen has a tremendous upside with his size, touch and experience,” said Coach Lawson. “I am looking forward to having him bring a work rate that will enable him to compete for minutes in our midfield and front line.”
As a student-athlete, he will look to focus his studies on business and economics. Steffen is the son of Bridgett and William Shannon from Lima, Ohio.
Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts university located in Huntington, Ind., with an enrollment of approximately 1100 students. Athletically, HU competes in fourteen NAIA and Mid-Central Conference intercollegiate sports for men and women.
