  • Central Christian College announced this week the signing of three new members of the Tiger men’s soccer team.
    Tyler Adams is a sophomore transfer student from Colorado State University and has been a long time recruit of coach Aaron Hoxie for the past two seasons.  
    "We finally were able to make it work for Tyler and his family to come.  He is going to give us a ton of speed and much needed experience to our back line," Hoxie said.
    The 5-foot-11 defender played his high school soccer at Poudre High School in Ft. Collins, Colorado.
    He will be pursuing a degree in Sports Management while attending CCC.
    Also joining the Tigers in the fall will be Boise, Idaho native Blake Morris.
    At 6-foot-1, 170 pounds, Morris gives the Tigers another tough defensive option. Morris feels blessed that he has this opportunity.  
    "I'm so stoked to be playing for CCC,” Morris said. “This is a great opportunity for me as I have been looking forward to collegiate soccer my whole life.  Thanks to Coach Hoxie for this chance."
    Hoxie is pleased to have Morris join the Tigers.
    “He was raised right and has carried over a good work ethic into his soccer life,” Hoxie said. “He is a high character guy that will fit right in here as well as with the rest of the lads."
    The third signing this week was Lewisville High School soccer player Matthew Malone.
    Coach Hoxie has signed Matthew following a string of quality performances at local showcases and an impressive outing during one of the schools preview weekends.
    "Matthew has the ability to play in many different positions up the middle,” Hoxie said, “but we are very excited about the possibility of having him in the mid-field.”
    Matthew is the son of Liz and Pat Malone, from Lewisville, Texas. He graduated with a 2.9 GPA and is still deciding on his major of choice.
