GALLATIN - Station Camp senior Josh Street signed his letter of intent on Thursday afternoon to continue his soccer career at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nahsville.
“I chose Trevecca because it is close to home and such a great university that my family had wanted me to attend for quite some time,” he said. “Another positive of that being is familh, friends and coaches can come watch my games being located so close to home.”
Street considered Colorado Christian University and Berry College, but says the appeal to Trevecca was too good to pass up.
“These two colleges were very impressive, but nothing could beat the reputation of Trevecca,” Street said. “The university is just so beautiful and the people there could not have been any nicer.”
With his college decision and signing out of the way, Street says it does take some pressure on him to just go out and perform for his team this spring.
“Honestly, it does take a little pressure off me, but at the same time there is still a lot of work to be done this year if we want to achieve our goal,” he said. “This is a great group of guys and we’ve faced adversity many times this year so I know we will be prepared for the run this post season.”
Station Camp coach Jeremy Cooke is in his first year coaching the boys team, but has known Street for quite some time and says Trevecca couldn’t have asked for a better player.
“Josh has always been a really good soccer player but his mentality and leadership has really taken a 180 for our team this year,” he said. “Fortunately for me he played for me as a freshman at Beech so we’ve always been in contact with one another and I just think he trusts me and he knows I trust him and that has allowed him to really become a star for our team this year. Trevecca is getting the ultimate competitor. His passion for the game is unmatched.”
Street says he will study something in the criminal justice field during his four years in Nashville.
