Keaton Halbert decided last week he wanted to join the ICC soccer party in Fulton. Today, he made it official.
Halbert is the eighth Golden Wave soccer player to sign with Itawamba in the last week. He will fill a walk on position for Coach Mike Sullivan’s men’s team.
“This is such a unique opportunity for me,” said Keaton. “I am ready to take on the new experience in Fulton. Being with a lot of my current teammates will add another level of competitiveness.”
Tupelo head coach Harris Faucette thinks Keaton will make an instant impact. “He is a great leader on and off the field,” said Faucette. “His dedication to soccer and excelling in the classroom will make ICC even better.”
Halbert has impressive stats as Tupelo’s goalkeeper in 2014-2015. He has recorded 13 shutouts while only allowing four opponent goals in 18 games.
