Rowan College at Burlington County Baron signs to play Division I soccer at Oral Roberts University
Pemberton, New Jersey—On Wednesday, Feb. 3, Rowan College at Burlington County soccer player Orlando Neto, of Cliffside Park, signed a letter of intent to play Division I soccer at Oral Robers University in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
"In his two years at RCBC, Orlando served as one of the team captains. He was a leader on and off the field,” said RCBC men's soccer head coach Craig Dewar. "We are always proud when a Baron goes on to play NCAA Division 1 at a four-year school. We are especially proud of Orlando, his athletic and academic achievements at RCBC. We are looking forward to seeing what he accomplishes at Oral Roberts."
Neto, who maintains a 3.65 GPA, scored 23 goals and 27 assists and played in 28 games the last two seasons at RCBC. During his time playing with the Barons, he was named to First Team All-East, First Team All-Region XIX twice, and First Team All-Garden State Athletic Conference twice.
“I chose to attend RCBC so that I could be a part of a strong soccer team and receive a great education. To receive this type of offer is a dream come true,” Neto said. “I would like to thank my coaches, teammates and athletics staff for supporting me in my two years at RCBC.”
Orlando will play Division I soccer for Oral Roberts University head coach Ryan Bush and assistant coach Chris Taylor this fall.
