Fernandez one of five area standouts to sign with ICC soccer
Itawamba Community College soccer coach Mike Sullivan announced the signing of five new members to his women and men’s 2011 soccer team on Friday.
Estafany Fernadez and Tanner Kidd signed to play for the Lady Indians while Taylor Nabors, Hunter McGhie, and Jay Jourdan also signed to play for the Indians next season.
Fernadez, a 5’5 midfielder from New Albany, has been the leading goal scorer for the Lady Bulldogs three out of her four years in high school and has been named to the All-Division team twice.
“Estefany is a tough skilled player that can score goals,” said Sullivan. “We are looking for her to continue doing that when she brings her game to ICC next year.”
Kidd, a 5’4 defender from Tupelo High School, played select soccer for the Tupelo Futbol Club.
“In picking up Tanner we are getting one of the premier defenders in the state,” said Sullivan. “She will instantly be a team leader and a big part of our defense next season. She is very knowledgeable about the game and plays hard every minute she is out there.”
Kidd has been selected to play in the Mississippi Association of Coaches (MAC) All-Star game and has also been named Tupelo’s Defensive Player of the Year for the second time as well as being named to the All-Area and All-State teams in 2009.
Nabors, a 6’0 defender from Tupelo, played select soccer for the Tupelo Futbol Club.
“Taylor is one of the most versatile players out there,” said Sullivan. “He can be a great defender or he can also be a great attacking player. With his skill set I know he contribute greatly to our team next year.”
Taylor has been named to play in the high school All-Star game this year and has been named All-State the last 2 years.
McGhie, as 5’8 midfielder from Tupelo, played select soccer for the Tupelo Futbol Club.
“Hunter brings a lot of experience at all levels of soccer,” said Sullivan. “He is always that guy that plays hard every second of the game. He’s very good with the ball at his feet, sees the field well, and is a great passer.”
Jourdan, a 5’9 midfielder from Tupelo, played select soccer for the Mississippi Fire out of Jackson, MS.
“Jay is a strong and physical player that will bring a lot of experience to our team next season,” said Sullivan. “He sees the field very well and it shows in the way he handles the ball and distributes to other players.”
