Junior captain Yohance Marshall of the No. 10 University of South Florida men’s soccer team was highlighted by College Soccer News in the publication’s “Hard Working Team Players” feature, as released Thursday, Sept. 20.
“You would be hard pressed to find anyone who makes more of a contribution to the success of his team than Yohance Marshall. He is a solid and consistent performer with an impressive work rate. Marshall is the team captain and is the vocal leader of the (USF) back line. (USF) is historically known for their offensive productivity as reflected in their 6-1 win last weekend over American University. However, it should be noted that the Bulls have only allowed three goals so far this year in route to a solid 5-0-0 early season record. (USF) faces its toughest challenge of the young 2007 season when they welcome Connecticut to the USF Soccer Stadium on Friday, September 21. You can count on Marshall being well prepared to defend the real estate in the (USF) defensive third.” - CSN
Marshall, a junior out of Malabar Arima, Trinidad, has started all five games for the Bulls and registered a shot on goal with USF’s first penalty kick opportunity in the season opener against UCF.
“College Soccer News is right on the money when it selected Yohance for this category, as he is a great captain and does all the little things to help the team win games,” head coach George Kiefer said.
Marshall and the rest of the Bulls’ defense will look to stop the No. 2 Connecticut Huskies tomorrow night at the USF Soccer Stadium in the team’s BIG EAST opener. Match time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and fans are encouraged to come early and enjoy all of the on-site promotions as a large crowd is expected.
