Reasons for choosing Holy Family: “Holy Family has a great education program and competitive sports. Holy Family offers great coaching, and it’s close to home.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in soccer at the collegiate level? “I started thinking about playing soccer in college my freshman year of high school. Playing at a high level at my club gave me confidence that I could. My coach, Shane Rineer, and my dad pushed me to believe I could. The recruiting progress started my senior year after an amazing high school season.”

Lex Lenoir – Penn State Abington (Soccer)

Reasons for choosing Penn State Abington: “The college is local and has the academics I’m looking for while being able to continue my athletic career. While on my visit, the coach and players I met treated me like a part of the family, which really made me feel welcomed.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in soccer at the collegiate level? “At a young age, I started playing soccer, and when my parents knew it was right for me, I started playing at a higher level. I loved the competition of this and the desire to get better and better. The traveling to all the games I went to really drove me to get better seeing how many good players there are. My teammates on my FC Bucks ECNL team also helped me to pursue the college level after seeing them commit to play at the next level. After a successful high school season last year, I knew I would not be able to give up soccer after high school. Coach Morris saw me play and saw the skill I would bring to the team. I believe that I can help make the team even better, and that’s why I chose Penn State Abington.”
