The Lincoln Christian University (LCU) men’s soccer team welcomed its newest member this week, recruit signee Mason Thompson.
Mason is from Stevensville, Michigan and primarily plays the striker position.
“I’m really excited to start my career at LCU!” Mason said. He scored 33 goals in his high school career at Michigan Lutheran High School and then Grace Christian School.
Mason stands 6’00” tall and will look to compliment a Red Lions offense that saw fellow striker Keaton Doty notch 20 goals last season, good for eighth in the nation at the NAIA level.
"We are very excited to have Mason joining us. He is a dynamic scorer and playmaker that will add another dimension to our offense," LCU Head Coach Craig Hoskins said. "I think he will pair well with our other forwards and attacking mids to give us more firepower than we've had in a long time. We're looking forward to what Mason can bring to our campus off the field as well. He comes from a strong Christian background and has great character and we are thrilled that he chose to continue his education and playing career at Lincoln."
Welcome to the Red Lions family, Mason!
