(South Bend, Ind.) Washington High School senior Otoniel Gonzalez has signed a letter of intent to continue his academic and athletic career at Holy Cross College.
The 5'10'' forward/midfielder is the eighth player to sign with the Saints for this upcoming season. During his senior year with the Panthers, Gonzalez was named first team All-Northern Indiana Conference. He also was the captain and team MVP for the 2009-10 soccer season.
"Otoniel comes to us from a scrappy Washington High School program," said Head Coach Dustan Harley. "He is the type of player that can make an immediate impact on our program. Otoniel is a very strong forward with a great first touch and an even better finishing touch. It is great to sign another young man with local ties that I have full faith will be a success story at Holy Cross."
The son of Roberto and Estela Gonzalez, Otoniel will be working on a bachelor's degree in business while attending Holy Cross.
