Senior Justin Faison has committed to play soccer at Sacramento State! The Friars’ defender shared, “I chose Sac State because of its beautiful campus and friendly environment. The players and coaches mindset to get better everyday also attracted me to the soccer program.”
A two-year varsity letterman for the Friars, Faison earned 1st Team All-Trinity League recognition following his junior campaign in which he helped lead the team to their 8th consecutive Trinity League Championship and the CIF-SS D1 semifinals. He played in 17 games for Servite tallying one goal and four assists.
Coach Eddie Soto shared, “It’s exciting to hear Justin has committed to Sac State. The Big West Conference suits him well. The Hornets have landed a great player and an excellent young man!”
Faison, who plans to study Kinesiology at Sac State, also runs track and field for the Servite.
Faison is the second Friar from the Class of 2022 to announce his college decision joining Eddie Villeda who is headed to UC Santa Barbara.
In closing Faison added, “I would like to thank Alex Gimenez, Eddie Soto, Brandon Thomas, and Sean Melendez for always pushing me to get better and giving me the information I need to succeed on and off the field. Most importantly, I would like to thank God and my family for supporting me always and giving me the motivation to become the best person and player I can be.”
The 2021-2022 season begins for the Friars in December.
