WEST POINT, Ala. – Monday was an exciting day for West Point’s Amanda Dyer. The senior goalkeeper signed a scholarship to continue her playing career with the Judson College Eagles next year.
Lady Warriors Head Coach Rob Whitesell is proud of his standout keeper for earning this opportunity and is excited to see the effect her accomplishment could have on the rest of the program.
“Amanda is a great all-around athlete and did a super job for us on defense as a goalkeeper this year. It is great to see her have the opportunity to continue with soccer at the collegiate level,” Whitesell said. “I’m proud for the whole soccer program at West Point. We have come a long way and I hope many more athletes will see the benefits of their hard work.”
Dyer has already become familiar with several of the people she’ll be spending time with at Judson and is looking forward to getting started with a new team.
“A friend of mine was planning to go to Judson and asked me to go with her to their tour and I went and I liked how small the classes were and the people there were very nice and I have talked to some of their soccer girls over social media and they seem like a really good team.”
Amanda is excited to begin her college career but admits that she will miss her teammates and coaches at West Point that have helped prepare her for this new challenge.
“I think I will most miss my team and I would say Coach (Rob) Whitesell has prepared me for what playing in college has in store.”
Whitesell touched on the impact Dyer’s career can have on those around the soccer program at West Point and she is proud to be an example for future Warrior soccer players.
“It actually means a lot,” Dyer said. “I love my team and it makes me happy to know that all of our hard work can pay off. They can see if they stick with soccer it could take them to the next level.”
