Demon signs on for CMC soccer

In his senior year as a starter for the Glenwood Springs boys soccer team, Cory McGrath was an offensive force. A trait Colorado Mountain College men’s soccer coach Steve White hopes the former Demons player continues next year as a newly-signed scholarship player for the Eagles.”Cory’s got strong ability, along with being able to control the ball with speed,” said White. “We feel like he’ll fit into our system right away.”Throughout his coaching career – first at GSHS, then at CMC – White’s teams feature aggressive, quick attackers who apply consistent pressure in the offensive end.It’s a system the coach feels McGrath, who led the Demons with 13 goals in 2005, (according to Rocky Preps statistics) is well suited for.”We have a lot of talent up top this year,” said White. “We are loaded with forwards. Cory’s got the skills and speed to play anywhere up front.”White currently has McGrath slotted as an outside midfielder.The Eagles’ womens team has also been active on the recruiting trail.Brittany Dees, a graduate of Windsor High School, has signed a letter-of-intent to play at CMC this coming season. Jaspen Leslie, who prepped at Roaring Fork High School in Carbondale, has made a verbal commitment, but has yet to sign to sign to CMC officially.Both Eagles teams, White said, begin team training in mid-August. The CMC men’s and women’s squads open the 2006 season Sept. 1 at Air Force Academy Prep in Fort Collins.
