As the Fall semester progresses, collegiate athletic teams are thinking about the conference playoffs that will come very soon. The LeTourneau Mens soccer team is in the top 7 of the American Southwest Conference. Of all the players on the team, one of the men just recently made Letourneau history.
Dillon Holt, a Senior from Boerne Texas, started on the team regularly in 2008 as a redshirt freshman. He has recieved a good amount of comendations for his skills including All-ASC First Team in 2008,'09,and '10, and also offensive player of the year in 2010. Though these are impressive, Dillon grabbed hold of another feat when early this season he became the all time leading scorer for LeTourneau University Men's soccer. Holt has had quite an experience as a student and athlete at LeTourneau University. When asked about his time here, this is what he had to say.
"Coming to LeTourneau University as a freshman, I didn’t know what to expect. I was really excited to start my college career as a student-athlete, but was nervous to come to a Christian university. I grew up in the public school system, so this was going to be my first school that was based and run on Christian beliefs. I had been a Christian since a very young age, but for some reason I didn’t know if I was ready to come to a school like this. I quickly found out that LETU was the perfect place for me. Now in my senior year, I have a lot of great things to say about LETU. I have loved this place since the day I got here. The students, professors and faculty & staff have been amazing. Everyone is willing to help you out.
The main struggle I have had during my time here has been with playing soccer along with doing schoolwork. People would tell me that I should quit soccer, but for me that was not an option. Thankfully, through my hard work, I have been able to get through this struggle. My greatest experiences have come from playing soccer. Nothing is better than to put on that jersey everyday and represent God and LETU.
My experience and time here has been a true blessing. The relationships I have made here will last forever. LETU has also made me a stronger Christian. LETU is a great place to be and I would strongly recommend LETU to anyone looking to go to college."
