Greene to wear MU green


Farragut High School Senior goalkeeper Adam Greene signed National Letter of Intent papers to play soccer as a student/athlete at Marshall University, Huntington, W.Va., during a brief ceremony in the FHS Commons Friday, March 16. Greene helped lead the Impact USA competitive team to back-to-back Tennessee State D1 championships in 2005 and 2006. In goal the past five years for Impact USA, Greene’s also helped led them to a Region III Premier League Southern Division Championship in 2006. “Adam possesses all the qualities of becoming an excellent collegiate goalkeeper,” Marshall head coach Bob Gray said. “He has great size, moves his feet, and he is not afraid to aggressively attack the ball in the box. His physical attributes and his competitive nature provide him a solid foundation to compete for the starting job.”

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior said his decision came down to Marshall or Birmingham-Southern. “I finally decided on Marshall [because] I really like the school, the coaching staff, and the town,” Greene said. “Marshall has a great athletic tradition, and Conference U-S-A is a really competitive conference. I’m really looking forward to playing for coach Gray at Marshall and being part of a special program.” Greene plans to major in environmental science at Marshall, and aspires to play professionally after college. Seated alongside Greene are his parents, Sherrell and Rebecca Green. Also seated is Rachel Greene Cook, sister. Back row, left to right, are FHS assistant coach Derek Wright, Impact USA coach Mike McLean and Admiral head coach Wallie Culbreth.
