Prior to graduation, Plymouth Whitemarsh High School’s Will Schildt signed a letter of intent to play soccer for the Alvernia University Golden Wolves. The left forward was named second-team all-league for 2020 and is the recipient of the 2021 George Purvis Memorial Soccer Award.
Schildt was a three-year varsity player and also served as Team Captain his senior season. He had 31 assists and six goals in his high school career.
“At PW, I learned that being committed and dedicated to a team was rewarding and something I wanted to continue in college,” he said. “I’m looking forward to staying fit and being part of the Alvernia sports community.”
Schildt started playing soccer in preschool and later also played in Colonial Soccer Club’s travel league. He is an honor roll student and participates in Children’s Hospital Helpers. He plans to major in Marketing at Alvernia.
