Hunter Schobert, Captain of this year’s East Ridge High School soccer team, has signed scholarship papers to continue his athletic career on the next level.
According to Pioneer Coach Jeremy McIntyre, Schobert will play college soccer for Tennessee Wesleyan College next year.
Schobert has played soccer all four years of his high school career. He served as Captain in his junior year as well. This year Schobert was credited with eight goals and five assists in helping the Pioneers to a perfect District 6 A/AA record and a sterling 10-2 overall record. As a freshman he played on the squad that won the region championship. He also plays for Chattanooga Football Club I.
He said playing for Tennessee Wesleyan seemed like a “smart decision.” Schobert, who is a Methodist, said he likes the idea of his college having a Methodist affiliation.
“They’ve got a really good team,” he said. “I’ve practiced with some of their team and it really got me motivated. I thought it would be amazing to be a part of that team.”
