SOCCER – CASCADE SENIOR SIGNS WITH IU EAST
RICHMOND, Ind. – Tyler Fox, a senior at Cascade High School (Ind.), has signed a letter of intent to join the new Indiana University East men’s soccer program for the team’s inaugural season during the 2017-18 school year.
Red Wolves coach Steve Moore announced the signing March 21.
Fox helped Cascade win three conference championships during his high school career. He was a three-year starter, an all-county and all-conference honoree, and the recipient of Cascade’s mental attitude award.
Tyler is the son of Todd and Ann Fox. He plans to major in criminal justice with a minor in psychology.
“I really like IU East because it is a small school, and I also will finish with an IU education,” Fox wrote. “I also like that IU East offers a cadet officer program that I can work towards getting into.”
IU East in 2016 announced plans to add NAIA men’s and women’s soccer programs. The teams will begin NAIA competition during the 2017-18 school year.
