Huntington University soccer coach Russ Lawson has announced that Webster Christian High School senior, Tyler Holbein, has signed his letter of intent to play soccer at Huntington University this fall. Coming off of one of the Warriors’ most successful runs in recent years with a 47-9-2 record, Holbein played a major role in his team’s success. As an attack-minded center mid he demonstrated the technical ability and courage needed to play in the middle of the park. He also has the versatility to line up out on the flank at the college level. As a senior captain, Tyler totaled 25 goals and 18 assists earning him a selection to the New York State Section V All-Tournament Team and New York’s Private Parochial All-Star Team.
Coach Lawson notes, “I am looking forward to working with Tyler because he is the type of athlete who gives you his all. He brings a finisher’s mentality and work rate that will serve him well as he looks to develop his game and ultimately impact our program.”
Off the field Holbein will explore the film production field and judging from the effort he puts forth on the field, he should have a successful collegiate experience as a student-athlete. Tyler is the son of Mike and Diana Holbein from Palmyra, NY and brother of former HU soccer alum Keith Holbein.
