Seymour graduate to join IUE soccer

Tyler Penegar, a Seymour, Ind., native, has signed a letter of intent to join the Indiana University East men’s soccer program starting with the 2020 spring semester.

Red Wolves coach Steve Moore announced the signing Dec. 15.

“Tyler’s a guy that I think is going to surprise some people,” Moore said. “He’s coming to us having taken a semester off from soccer. However, when he came on campus and trained with the team, he had the pace, ability on the ball and timing that makes us think he’s going to be able to create dangerous scoring chances for us. We’re really excited to be able to get a jump-start with him training with us all spring!”

Penegar was an all-conference performer for his Seymour High School team that went 12-4 overall and 7-0 in conference play in 2018. He also served as the place-kicker for the Seymour football team.
