Burien’s Evan Richter Playing In Televised Soccer Match Wednesday
We received an email Thursday (Oct. 21) telling us that Evan Richter, a 2008 Highline High School graduate, will appear on the Fox Soccer Channel (channel 401) on Wednesday, Oct. 27th at 8pm in a live soccer match that will feature University of California Santa Barbara vs. California Poly Technical University San Luis Obispo.
According to the email:
Evan (#22, pictured left) plays defensive-mid for Cal Poly. He attended Marvista Elementary School and Sylvester Middle School, and played club soccer for 8 years with Highline Premier Soccer Club and 4 years with Highline High School varsity soccer.
According to the Cal Poly Athletics Website:
The four-year letter winner for Highline High School is a polished prep who has the potential to be an immediate threat for the Mustangs. The four-time first team all-league selection is one of the top-10 all-time career assist leaders for Highline. As a junior, Richter led his team in assists and was named by the Seattle Times as a “Player to Watch.” Richter helped lead his squad to state title games in 2005 and 2007. On the club level, Richter was an eight-year member of the HPFC/Heat ’89 coached by David Hoggan. Richter made the Washington State Olympic Development Program team in 2005 and 2006. His squads reached the Region IV ODP Championships. Also on the club level, Richter played for the WSYSA/ODP 1988 National Select All Star squad in 2007. Also in 2007, Richter was a Super Group Finalist at the Surf College Cup in San Diego, Calif. He also played in the Dallas Cup in 2007 and 2008 and has international experience in tournaments in Germany, Sweden and Ireland.
Coach Holocher on Evan Richter:
“Evan is a young man that we feel will grow into a very strong midfield player here at Cal Poly. What we all liked about Evan was his creativity on the dribble, his passing and his overall confidence on the ball. He has natural ability to change the tempo of the game, combine quickly or play direct. He also has the mentality to get forward from the midfield and score and create goals. He is also a tough kid that is willing to defend with intensity. As Evan adds strength to those skills, he will be able to compete for any of the midfield positions, either inside or outside. We are very excited about Evan joining us here at Cal Poly.”
So be sure to tune in another rising B-Town star Wednesday and cheer Evan on!
