Pack men’s squad adds three
PUEBLO, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Feb. 8, 2011) - The CSU-Pueblo men's soccer team added three to its 2011 squad, which returns 10 starters from its RMAC playoff-qualifying squad.
Topping the list is Pueblo-native Rene Chacon (Pueblo, Colo.). The Pueblo East High School grad led all goal scorers and was named First Team all South Central League and Honorable Mention 4A All State in 2009 . He played club ball with the Pueblo Rangers and his primary positions are forward and right midfield.
"I've liked Rene's work ethic and willingness to learn. He's a creative attacker who should help our offense," Pack coach Roy Stanley said.
Patrick Farris-Hilaire (Denver, Colo.) prepped at Denver East, where he played both soccer and basketball. At 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, he will add some size, quickness, and speed to the Pack's forward line.
"Patrick will give us a different element up top that will add to our attack," Stanley said. "He will be a handful for teams to defend."
Cezar Plascencia (Anchorage, Alaska) is the latest ThunderWolf from the nation's northernmost state, hailing from Anchorage, Alaska. A transfer from Fort Lewis College, he attended Bartlett High School. At 6-foot and 180 pounds, he is a midfielder that possesses both size and speed, Stanley said.
"Cezar is hungry to prove himself and will help us with his versatility," he added.
The three new adds, all of which will be redshirt-freshmen in 2011, join a squad that lost just three seniors to graduation and consisted of 22 underclassmen last season.
"All three of these players will add size, quickness and speed to the team," Stanley concluded.
