William Bell, a senior at Westminster Academy, has signed to play soccer with University of Indianapolis. Bell will attend the university on an academic scholarship he earned while starting on the 02 Lobos Rush Premiere team and as captain of the Westminster Academy Varsity Soccer team while also maintaining a 4.85 GPA in the rigorous academic environment of Memphis’s only Classical Christian School.
“They are one of the highest nationally ranked NCAA division II soccer programs in the country, they have a very professional and demanding environment, and they have a coaching staff who truly want to bring the best out of each and every one of their players,” said Bell of his decision to sign with the Greyhounds soccer team.
As a sophomore, Bell was Westminster Academy’s top scorer and was named to the All-District team. He was then voted team captain for his junior year*. At Westminster Academy, Bell was coached by Steve Weber and had 16 goals and 6 assists in his two seasons on the Defenders Varsity team. “I’ve had the privilege of coaching William for 4.5 seasons. He is fast, strong, well-suited to play and he has a tremendous work ethic,” said Coach Weber. “One of the most note-worthy characteristics that William has is his determination. He expressed his goal of playing college soccer several years ago, and it’s exciting to see one of his biggest goals realized.”
