Junior Austin Wehner, who just began his second year on varsity soccer, has now verbally committed to play division 1 soccer at San Diego State University.

For the past 4 years, Wehner has played on a locally based competitive soccer team, Placer United, which has gotten him noticed by some strong colleges. During the high school offseason, Wehner is able to improve his abilities in a skilled environment. Wehner believes that while it’s a very great opportunity, it also presents him with a challenge that he hopes to overcome.

“It’s pretty rare to get minutes as a freshman, but I hope I can be able to come in and find some playing time,” Wehner said. “It’s going to be hard, but I think if I work hard enough in preseason I can end up getting playing time.”

Despite the possibility of limited playing time, Wehner feels strongly that being on a collegiate team will greatly improve his play. To Wehner, committing was a very exciting event, after being recruited by other highly ranked schools, like Sacramento State, Cornell, and Dartmouth.

“I’m extremely happy to go to SDSU, because they’ve given me such a great opportunity,” Wehner said. “I can’t wait to go there once I graduate so I can show them what I can do.”
