TRU WolfPack men’s soccer head coach John Antulov stayed close to home with his latest recruit.
Goalkeeper Alessandro Lizzi of Kamloops has joined the club.
“He is another solid piece to our goalkeepers and brings a great attitude and work ethic,” Antulov said in a TRU press release. “I have seen significant growth in him physically and technically as a goalkeeper. He has worked very hard to get here and we look forward to watching him to continue to progress.”
Lizzi, the 6-foot-2 backstop who plans to pursue a career in nursing or engineering, came up through the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association ranks and won a provincial title in 2019.
His father and KYSA coach Victor Lizzi is a WolfPack soccer alumnus.
