Izzy Hunter – Franklin & Marshall College (Soccer)

Major:  Psychology

Final list of colleges:  Franklin & Marshall, Thomas Jefferson, Clark, La Salle, Marist

Reasons for choosing F&M:  “It felt like a second home. It was somewhere that felt like I could stay there for four years and enjoy my time. The town of Lancaster is gorgeous, and it has so many opportunities. Academically, Franklin & Marshall is in the top 100 of almost every list, and that’s a huge thing for me. I’m going to college for psychology and not just a sport. Playing soccer there is just an added bonus that I’m super excited about.”

What was the progression that led you to competing in soccer at the collegiate level?  “I did so many sports. I did track, I played basketball, but in the end, I knew I wanted to play soccer. It’s something that without I didn’t feel whole. The whole entire game – tactics and techniques and everything like that made sense to me. It was like a puzzle you could put together, and it was something I needed to have.”

Coach Paul Eisold says:  “Izzy played varsity all four years. She was primarily a midfielder and a forward. However, this season towards the end of the season we had to make her an outside back, and to be honest, I think that’s more of a natural position for her. It takes a little bit of the stress out of the game and allows a little bit more freedom, and she doesn’t have the demands of having to score, she doesn’t have the demands of all that stuff. She did really well in the back. She’s a tremendously hard worker. I’m really happy for Izzy. She’s in a good spot.”
