Roberts latest soccer addition

FOR RELEASE
2008-02-20
Huntington University soccer coach Russ Lawson announced the addition of Steven Roberts to his incoming 2008 class.
Roberts, who was a senior captain for Bishop Dwenger High School, will look to add a scoring punch to the Forester’s front line. In his final season as a Saint, he found the back of the net 16 times and earned First Team All-Conference honors in the Summit Athletic Conference. It marked the third consecutive year that Roberts received All-Conference recognition.

“Steven plays the game at a pace that can make a difference in the MCC," stated Coach Lawson. "He has a lethal strike from outside the box as well as excellent touch. He has great offensive instincts, knows how to finish and has the versatility to play up front or in the middle of the park. That combination of skills is something we are really excited about. His transition to the collegiate game should be smooth, allowing him to challenge our returning players for minutes up front."

Off the field Roberts will pursue a degree in Biology. He is the son of Theresa Roberts from Fort Wayne, IN.

Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts college located in Huntington, IN, with an enrollment of approximately 1100 students. Athletically, HU is a member of the Mid-Central Conference (MCC) and competes in fourteen NAIA intercollegiate sports for both men and women.
