Canyon High boys soccer striker A.J. Rochow has decided to play soccer at The Master’s College, according to TMC head coach Jim Rickard.

On the girls side, Kylee MacArthur of West Ranch signed earlier this year and will play for The Master’s College’s women’s team next season.

Rochow, a forward, led Canyon offensively this year and should provide speed up top for the Mustangs next season.

“He’s a forward who’s very fast and a good finisher,” Rickard said. “He scored some really good goals for Canyon this year and last year. There was a string of three or four games where he scored a goal in each game or had an assist.”

Rickard said he has been seriously looking at Rochow for two years and found out recently that the local would sign.

“I’m really glad to get a local kid that can excite the community,” Rickard said.

Rochow will have an opportunity to play right away for the Mustangs, who are young at the forward position.

TMC will have one senior and two sophomores at the position in addition to Rochow, Rickard said.

“My plan for him, whether he starts or doesn’t start, he needs to be playing a lot and is really going to get thrown into the fire,” Rickard said. “I’d love for him to have a good amount of goals scored next year as a freshman.”

For MacArthur, there were many reason the West Ranch senior chose to sign with the local college.

“I love the team, and I love the coaches and the dynamic of the school,” she said. “I wanted to stay close enough to still be involved with family and church. And it’s a great school. I’m excited.”

She has been recruited as a forward for the Mustangs, but her playing time and position aren’t set.

“It’s going to be a lot of competition (to start next season),” she said. “There’s a lot of girls up top attacking that are on the team, and I’m excited to play with them and see what happens.”
