Men's Soccer Signs Three For 2007
May 31, 2007
Allende, a midfielder/forward from Winter Haven, Florida, is a sophomore transfer from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. At UNC-Pembroke, Allende recorded one assist in nine games as a freshman while starting two contests. As a high school athlete at Lake Region High School in Winter Haven, Allende was a four-year letter winner and was named to the All-County first team his junior and senior seasons. He was also selected to the All-State first and second teams in the same seasons.
Joining Allende on the PBA squad is Crouse, a freshman forward from Lakeland, Florida. In his four years as a high school athlete at Lakeland Christian High School, Crouse tallied 91 goals and 57 assists. Crouse, an All-State player who led his team in goals and assists the last two years, will be used for his speed and size at the forward position.
Kanarr is a Valrico, Florida native who will add an asset to the Sailfish defense. Kanarr has won several awards throughout his high school and club career. A captain during his senior campaign at Durant High School, Kanarr will see some playing time throughout his freshman year at PBA.
The Sailfish, a team that went 9-11-3 in 2006, will look to steadily improve under the guidance of Coach Gomez, who brought his team to the nine-win mark after going 4-14-1 in his first season as the head coach.
PBA will begin the 2007 campaign with a friendly exhibition game versus the Charlotte Eagles on August 23rd. Charlotte is a member of the second division of the United Soccer Leagues. Coach Gomez was previously a member of the Eagles squad from 2000-2002.
