Head Coach Adam Pearce and the Spring Hill College Athletics Department announced the signing of Phoenix Iverson of Decatur, Ala., to the Badgers soccer team on Tuesday afternoon. A defenseman, Iverson served as the Decatur High School soccer team captain as a senior.
Pearce stated, "I am very pleased to have a player of Phoenix's standard join the Badgers. Phoenix is a very physical player fueled by competition, but he also is very sound technically on the ball. His accomplishments and experiences with his club team will allow him to make a smooth transition to college soccer. I could not be more excited about the security of the back line with Phoenix Iverson on board!"
Iverson's club team, Birmingham United (BUSA 90), won the 2007 Alabama State Cup Championship in November and is scheduled to compete in the Regional Championships in Raleigh, N.C., this June. Off the soccer pitch, he was voted one of the Top 10 Senior Boys by the faculty of Decatur High School.
