Senior Regan Meyer (’20), daughter of Diane and Steve Meyer, has verbally committed to play soccer and continue her education at Marshall University.

1. What led you to your decision to attend your chosen college?
Marshall has a great biology program. For instance, when I visited, I got to go to a lab and talk with one of the professors about his research. I also liked the team chemistry the coaches have built. I fell in love with the campus and coaching staff as well.

2. What other schools did you consider?
I considered schools ranging from D1 to D3 and an NAIA school. I considered all levels to find what fit for me as a player and student. I considered Grand Valley State University, Trevecca Nazarene University, Ohio Dominican University, and the University of Illinois Chicago to name a few of the coaches I was talking to.

3. Do you know what you want to study?
Yes, I want to study Biology. I have always loved science from a young age. Therefore, I wish to study general biology or biology education. Growing up with both my parents teaching, I have always found myself comfortable in a teaching role.

4. When did this school come into the picture?
Marshall came into the picture late November of my Junior year.

5. Have you visited the school? If so, when? How did it go?
Yes, I have visited Marshall multiple times. If you have ever been to Marshall, you know that Huntington’s community bleeds green and white. This sense of community was a big draw for me as a student-athlete.

6. Did anyone help you through the recruiting process? What kind of help did they provide?
My parents have always been my number one fans and support throughout this journey. My coaches and family have helped me tremendously. My coaches have provided a crucial communication system with my college coaches. In addition, they have guided me with their advice. My family has also helped me through the ups and downs of recruitment.

7. What are your strengths? 
My biggest strengthens as a goalkeeper are my ability to read the game, communication out of the back, and my ability to make saves in my range.

8. What do you think you need to improve before starting college?
Some things I need to improve before college is continuing to extend my range. I also would like to work on the fitness aspect by being more explosive and having quick, lighter feet through footwork. Lastly, I need to continue improving on corners and crosses, for example, being able to read them and catch them at the highest point. This is a crucial aspect of the college game, so it’s imperative that I work to improve this area of the game.

9. Please list any special awards, accomplishments or distinctions you may have earned:
-GMC all academic (2017, 2018)
-I have received High Honor Roll for every year in high school
-I also have earned three varsity letters
-I’m in nine clubs at West

Congrats Regan! #WestPride
