Midwest City, Okla. – Three Edmond area graduates committed this week to play for the men’s soccer team at Rose State College. 

Sam Hendricks, senior at Edmond North High School will join the Raiders following his graduation this May. Hendricks will play midfield while pursuing a degree in marketing. He is most looking forward to living on campus and playing for an up-and-coming team where he has a chance to make his mark.  Hendricks said, “This is a relatively new program but they were excellent their first year.”  Hendricks’ mom enjoys watching his games and is grateful he chose a school close enough for her to travel to watch him play.

Miles Moore was a 2015 graduate of Edmond Santa Fe. He chose Rose State because of the campus atmosphere and the great coaching staff.  Moore will play center back and right back for the Raiders this season. He has already started classes this spring semester and says, “I like that I can talk to my professors in and out of class.”

Quinton Carey is also in his first semester at Rose State after graduating from Edmond Memorial High School in 2015. He says he chose Rose State because, “It was the logical step to take to earn a scholarship at a four-year school as well.” Carey is pursuing a degree in Health and Exercise Science and plans to continue playing soccer after he earns his first degree.

All three students share a background in youth soccer and are looking forward to playing together again.

Coach Billy Martin has been with the Raiders since their first season. Martin said, “they are all exceptional players from the Edmond school system. All three young men will be great additions to the Rose State program and will make a big impact for the fall 2016 season.”
