After a highly successful prep career at Indian Lake, standout Tony Carpenter is taking his soccer talents to the University of Northwest Ohio in Lima.
“Tony was looking for something around home and UNOH fit that bill,” said Indian Lake boys head coach Jon Shoffstall. “The nice thing there is that they have a junior varsity program now. So Tony’s goals right now should be to figure out what position would be best suited for him at the college level. He should work to get playing time, find his strengths and weaknesses, see where he is at and then go from there.”
As one of two seniors on the team, Carpenter was heavily relied on as a defender. He helped Indian Lake to a 9-9 record this past fall, the most wins in school history. It was also the second straight season that ILHS set the mark for wins in a season.
“Tony is a really hard worker and a tough kid,” said Shoffstall. “He is the type of kid that never wants to come out of a game. He has natural endurance and just go and go. That will really help him out at the college game.”
