Council Rock South senior midfielder Matt Morton has become the first from his school to sign a Division I letter of intent and will play next year at Binghamton University.
Morton, a second-team All-Suburban One Continental Conference pick last year who scored 30 goals, was impressed with eighth-year Bearcats coach Ed Stephenson, the only coach the school has ever had.
“I just really liked the school,” said Morton, who also considered St. Joseph’s and Army. “When I got there and watched them scrimmage, I liked how coach Stephenson talked about the program. I think they have a good class coming in this year.”
Morton plans to major in business.
While he is proud to be the program’s first Division I recruit, he is more concerned about helping CR South become a power in the Suburban One League. Last year the Golden Hawks went 6-14 overall and 3-9 in the Continental Conference.
This year they hope to contend in the National Conference.
“We’ve had a lot of growth since I started here,” Morton said. “We have a new confidence this year and we’re hoping to make it to the (District 1) playoffs.
We’re looking to improve. We have a solid starting lineup and not as much depth as we want, but we’ll work with what we have.”
