The Baton Rouge Soccer Club has maintained a proud tradition of helpings it’s youth soccer players reach their goals both on and off the field and that tradition has continued with the graduating class of 2012.
On February 1, 2012, BRSC was proud to honor 7 of its premier club players and 1 of its competitive level players who will continue their playing career at the college level. This is not only great for the club, but more importantly it is a crowning achievement for the players and families alike.
Lindy Robichaux (Samford University), Keely Davis (Louisiana Tech University), Nony Oko (Louisiana Tech University), Grace Campbell (Louisiana State University), Jaynie Stewart (Pikeville University), Brandi Martin (Louisiana College), Ryan Reid (Maryland University), and April Ziffer (Mississippi Valley State) are eight of the Baton Rouge area players that will become college student athletes in the summer of 2012.
What these local athletes have proven is that hard work, perseverance, and desire can drive a player to keep doing one of the things that they love most and that is playing the beautiful game!
So what’s next for BRSC on the college front, the spring college seminar?
Each year, the BRSC host a college seminar. This seminar is open to parents and players from under 14 to 18, and is an informative meeting about the ins and outs surrounding the entire college recruiting process with the hopes of helping more of the area Baton Rouge players achieve their academic and soccer dreams. This year the seminar will be on March 20 from 6:30pm – 7:30pm at the BREC Tennis Center.
With the overwhelming success of the 2012 signing class and the information that will be provided at the spring college seminar, BRSC hopes to make the 2013 class a special one.
More information regarding the college seminar and updates as to how the current crop of BRSC players are doing as they begin their college careers will be out soon.
