College soccer isn’t just filled with the most talented players. To reach that high competition, you must have a strong work ethic, passion and intelligence. Defender Nick Theimer owns all of those qualities, and that’s why he’ll soon be playing for Utica University in New York.
“I have always wanted to play soccer at a level where everyone was as passionate and dedicated to the sport as I am,” Theimer said. “I am confident that’s exactly what I will find by joining this great squad.”
Theimer is the example of a true student-athlete with his 4.0 GPA. The Flagstaff, Ariz., native also scored a 29 on the ACT. Multiple programs were interested in Theimer, and he ended up receiving four offers.
“I knew as soon as I started talking to coach (Brian) Marcantonio that Utica was right for me,” Theimer said. “It reminds me a lot of my hometown in terms of the size and feel. Coach Marcantonio is also very personable and gave me amazing information that made me comfortable with my commitment.”
Utica has posted a winning record each of the last two full seasons, including a 10-win campaign during 2019.
Theimer, a 1st-Team All-Region pick last fall, is making quite the journey from Arizona to New York. He says he couldn’t have done it without the guidance from ScoutU.
“Perek and ScoutU provided me with an amazing network of connections and contacts to coaches and opportunities that I never would’ve known about before,” Theimer said. “This service was very successful, Perek’s help was amazing, and I will definitely continue to use it in the future.”
