Daniel Pitman signs with Lindsey Wilson

Somerset — A few weeks ago Daniel Pitman, of Pulaski County, signed to play soccer with Lindsey Wilson.

Lindsey Wilson is very much a soccer school and they have a highly remarked team winning nine NAIA championships the most recent of those coming in 2011.

“This is something I have looked forward to my whole life,” began Pitman. “It has always been my dream to get to play soccer in college.”

Pitman has been a member of the Maroons varsity soccer program his freshman year. Pitman’s skills in the classroom are just as impressive as on the field.

“Daniel and his class really accomplished a lot here at PC,” stated coach Casey Inabnitt. “Daniel was one of the main leaders on the team, he scored a lot of goals for us. I had him playing several different positions, he is a very versatile player and I think that as he continues to play and move forward he will be able to do a lot of things at Lindsey Wilson.”

This past season the Maroons 9-9 on the season. In the 2011 season Pulaski was the runner up of the 30th district the last year before they divided the districts moving Pulaski into the 47th district. Pitman only played in two regional tournament games both trips ending shortly after they began.

This past season the Blue Raiders finished with an impressive record of 22-2 making it to the semi-finals of the NAIA tournament. Head coach Ray Wells has been at Lindsey Wilson since 1983, with an impressive résumé winning all nine of the NAIA championships also winning 17 conference championships.

“Daniel is a player that we have been monitoring for some time know,” assistant coach Lee Chalmers remarked. “We have seen him in different environments and he has attended our camps, he is a player that brings something different. He is very energetic, coachable, and he has a good attitude I feel like he is the right fit for our program at Lindsey Wilson.”

“I liked Lindsey Wilson because it was a smaller school and it’s close to home,” stated Pitman. “Lindsey is a really good soccer school and I feel like ill be able to do a lot there.”
