DWS' Sullivan signs with Maryville


The Maryville College Scots have added one of their own, literally, to the men's soccer team.

Deerfield-Windsor star Andrew Sullivan signed with Maryville Wednesday afternoon in front of family and friends.

Sullivan is the Knights' team leader and captain, and says he's glad to get the recruiting process done with so he can focus on soccer.

He says a big reason for joining the Scots is his family lineage, which itself is Scottish.

His family on his father's side are all native Scots, and he says he felt he belonged on the campus.

"My whole family is Scottish, and going there, I felt comfortable. It's like I was home again," he says. "Everybody was just really nice. The coaches there were all telling me they feel like it's a family there. I really enjoyed being there for the short time I was there."

Sullivan says the day was even more special because he got to share it with Knights coach Aly Joslin.

Joslin has been Sullivan's coach since he was seven years old, with a club team in Tallahassee.

Sullivan says his coach has meant a great deal to his career on the pitch.

"I've known him for such a long time. It's just weird how we all ended up together again," he says. "I think he's just proud, and it doesn't have to be said really."

Sullivan chose Maryville over Sewanee.
