Congratulations to Matt Murrer, who will be pursuing his goal of playing collegiate soccer. Through hard work, dedication, and academic excellence, Matt received a scholarship to play D1 soccer at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. Matt is a senior and currently attends Aptos High School.
Matt plays Center Back for the CV San Jose FC Gunners 96B Red and was a huge part of their successful State Cup Championship season last year. Matt is a formidable presence in the back and anchored “one of the stingiest back lines at the Premier level.” He also captained the team and truly leads-by-example. Matt was a very sought-after player and garnered a lot of interest during the recent Summer Surf and College Surf Cup games.
Matt is one of only a handful of Seniors playing on the U17 Gunners (most are currently Juniors). Some of the other Gunners are being looked at by San Jose State, College of the Holy Cross, Sonoma State, Academy of the Arts University, University of Santa Barbara, San Diego State, and De Anza College, to name but a few.
