On March 9th, 2017 Plymouth Soccer Player Anthony Iacopelli signed his Letter of Intent to continue his soccer career at Union University. At this event Anthony shared his thoughts for future wildcats.
Question 1: What advice would you give to future Plymouth Wildcats?
To future and current athletes at Plymouth High School, I would say that they need not wish high school away. Get the most out of every day and make memories that you’ll be able to tell your kids when you get older. Don’t hold grudges against people and make many friends. Invite your friends to your games and try to play as many high school sports as possible. Support Plymouth High School Athletic Programs and bring your friends to events and especially rivalry games. Be a good teammate and an even better friend.
Question 2: Why did you choose Union University?
After visiting Union University twice and meeting all the players and coaches, I could picture myself there next year. I was able to stay with one of the players and go to a basketball game and had a really good time. The campus is really beautiful and the people there are very nice. I always wanted to live in Tennessee one day and this opportunity could not have came at a better time. I knew from my first visit that this is where God wanted my next chapter in my life to take place. Very excited to play and learn in this new environment.
Question 3: What will you miss most about being a Plymouth Wildcat?
The thing I will miss most about being a Plymouth Wildcat is being able to represent a community that I know so many people from. I knew every time I put on my Plymouth Soccer jersey that I was representing my school and my team represented the soccer talent that comes from the Plymouth-Canton area. I think that not having my best friends watching me in the stands or some of my closest friends growing up playing with or against me will also be something I miss. The cool thing about playing high school soccer at PCEP is that you often are playing some of your best friends in the biggest game of your career and those games were some memories that I’ll never forget. I will definitely be missing the Park Rivalry Games and the supporters they attracted the most!
