Men’s Soccer Makes Squad Addition

IMG_6098The CMU men’s soccer team is very pleased to announce the commitment of River East’s Alex Klassen for the upcoming 2013 season. The 6’4″ midfielder who may also feature as a central defender with the Blazers, comes to CMU from a successful high school program and FC Northwest’s regional program.

“For a player of Alex’s stature, he has real quality on the ball and composure when in possession,” says head coach Russell Willms, “Alex has a good feel for the game and I expect that he will flourish in the system that we plan to play this season.”

Klassen was recently selected to play for NKMB Saints of the Manitoba Major Soccer League’s Premier Second-Division this summer, after the club earned promotion in 2012 by winning Major League 1. He became connected with the CMU soccer program through the winter futsal academy organized through Calvin Christian School by CMU women’s co-coach Felipe Flores.
