February 01, 2006
Shreveport, LA---The LSUS Lady Pilots soccer team continue to add to what was already a very young, talented, and promising roster. Head Coach Jed Jones and the campus of LSUS would like to announce and welcome the signing of Alicia Rae Marshall from Texarkana, TX.
Marshall is a 5’7 defender who has been a member of the D’Feeters Soccer Club where she has played under Head Coach JP Walsh since 2003. Though she has been a defender most of her career, Marshall has the athletic ability to play any where on the field. Last season she was moved to the center mid position where she posted three goals and six assists in 10 games, and led her team to a State Cup game where she scored two goals and collected two assists while playing eight different positions throughout the match.
As a junior in high school, Marshall was selected to play for a local boy’s high school varsity team where as the center midfielder she scored 12 goals and added six assists in 17 games. Her success and leadership abilities led to her being named captain her senior season which is currently in progress.
Marshall is familiar with the Shreveport area as she has been playing with the Under 19 Boy’s A League for several years where she has been consistently among the leaders in the individual point rankings. Marshall has also been a member of the Andromeda Soccer Club and the NTSSA ODP Program since 2002.
Marshall will enter LSUS as a true freshman and will undoubtedly make an immediate contribution to the 2006 Lady Pilots success.
“Alicia is a very athletic and all-around excellent soccer player. She has the ability and the confidence to play any where on the field. She is also a very strong and tough young lady which is one of the reasons she has been so strongly recruited,” comments Jones.
“We have assembled a very talented and goal oriented team that has become very close in just a short time. I believe Alicia not only will help us reach our goals because of the type of player she is, but she will be a model student-athlete who will help us to continue to represent LSUS with great pride and character,” concludes Jones of Marshall.
