Lawson adds Allison

FOR RELEASE
2007-04-12
Huntington University Men’s Soccer Coach Russ Lawson has announced that Heritage Christian High School standout Dan Allison has signed a letter of intent to join the Forester program this fall. Not only has Allison played a pivotal role in organizing the midfield for the Eagles, he also has been versatile enough to get in the box and put a fair share of balls in the back of the net. Throughout his high school career, Allison tallied 37 goals and 32 assists to help lead the Eagles to conference and district championships in Michigan. He also served as team captain his final two seasons and as a senior, he was named All-Conference, All-District, and Honorable Mention All-State for Class D in the state of Michigan.
Two areas of concern that Coach Lawson is hoping to address with his 2007 recruiting class is quickness and the ability to challenge for balls in the air. Allison looks to be someone that can bolster both areas. “We are very excited that Dan will continue his career at Huntington,” says Lawson. “He is a strong, athletic and tenacious midfielder who has great mobility. Dan is coming off a tremendous senior season and we’re hoping he can pick up where he left off when he joins the team this fall.”

Off the field, Allison will look to make an impact in the classroom as a Business Management major.

Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts college located in Huntington, IN with an enrollment of approximately 1000 students. Athletically, HU competes in fourteen NAIA intercollegiate sports for both men and women and is a member of the Mid-Central Conference.

Dan is the son of Brian and Karen Allison from Paw Paw, Michigan.
