Huskies Add David Armstrong To Stellar Recruiting Class
April 9, 2010
SEATTLE - Washington head men's soccer coach Dean Wurzberger announced today All-American David Armstrong has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Huskies in the Fall of 2010, rounding out an outstanding class of eight players.
Armstrong, a forward from Aurora, Colo., was named an NSCAA-Adidas First Team All-American in 2008. A superstar at Rangeview High School, he was named the Denver Post's Colorado State Player of the Year and has been named to the paper's All-Colorado Team in each of the last two years. He is a two-time All-League, All-City and All-State First Team selection. He led the Centennial league in scoring as a sophomore and was also named honorable mention all-league as a freshman.
'We are very excited to add a player of this quality to an already strong 2010 recruiting class,' Wurzberger said. 'Davey is a skillful attacking player who we believe has the potential to make an immediate contribution next fall. One of our targets for the 2010 team is to add more goal scoring punch to our attack and we think Davey is going to help us achieve that objective.'
Armstrong has been just as successful in the classroom, where he carries a 3.87 grade-point average and has been on the honor roll all four years.
In addition to his success at the high school level, Armstrong has also led his club team to the 2006 Colorado state championship and was named the State Cup Most Valuable Player the same year. His team was also State Cup runner-up in 2007. He recently joined the MLS' Colorado Rapids Development Academy team and is currently training with their first team.
Armstrong joins a talented 2010 class which features U.S. U-17 goalkeeper and Seattle native Spencer Richey, fellow Colorado natives Brent Ham and Zachary Portillos along with Utah native Taylor Peay and in-state products John Crenshaw (Marysville, Wash.), Quinn Grisham (Issaquah, Wash.) and Michael Harris (Shoreline, Wash.).
