Pack soccer adds two more recruits
The CSU-Pueblo men’s soccer program is excited to announce the signing of two more 2010 recruits. With losing a solid group of defender’s to graduation, Head Coach Roy Stanley has signed two defenders with skill, size, speed, and agility.
Connor Marcone (6’1”/170) led Coronado High School of the Central League in San Diego this past season to a 13-4 record from his center back position. He has also played wing defender and has the skills and awareness to join into the attack off the flow of the game and on set pieces. He accumulated 6 goals and 7 assists this past season, was First Team all Central League, Defensive Player of the Year for the Central League, and made First Team CIF Division 3. Last season he made 2nd team All Central League and First Team All CIF Division 3. He played club ball for Nado Select, a team he captained. Brian Hiatt-Alue coached Connor in both club and high school.
Cody Fitzhugh (6’1”/165) has captained his Shadow Ridge High School team and the Nevada ODP team this past year. He was also a 2008 member of ODP. He was First Team all-Northwest League. He is currently a member of Neusport ’92 coached by Frank D’Amelio. He was previously a 2006 State Cup winner and a 2005 and 2007 State Cup runner up with Northwest United coached by his father Alan Fitzhugh.
"Both these young men not only possess good skills and athleticism, but they also have quality high level soccer experience," Stanley said. Stanley expects both to challenge for playing time immediately.
