Ambush Player Signs College Scholarship

Congratulations to long time Ambush player Alex Bicknell who recently signed a national letter of intent to play goalkeeper for Samford University.  Having played at Ambush Soccer Club almost exclusively since U9, Alex helped lead this year's Ambush U19 Girls to the Athena A championship. 

Starting as field player in her Academy years and early select years, Alex moved to goalkeeper at U14 and quickly became one of the area's top keepers.  She helped lead her Ambush team from Athena B all the way up to Region Premier League Status. 

Coach Doug Yearwood commented, "I've seen players transition from field player to goalkeeper and vice versa.  But I have never seen a player accel in their new position as quickly as Alex.  She is a tremendously gifted athlete and even better person.  Samford are very lucky to have her join their team next Fall."

Alex stars in goalkeeper for Milton HS and is an accomplished guitar player as well.  Well done Alex.  Ambush Soccer Club are very proud of you and wish you the best in your future soccer career at Samford.
