Verso among three moving on to academy soccer

The St. Francis High soccer team, which advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division I semifinals before capturing the CIF Southern California Division II Regional Championship last season, will be quite different when it begins its season next week.

St. Francis Coach Glen Appels confirmed Tuesday night that Eric Verso, Jake LaPorte and Blake Dawn will not be with the Golden Knights this season because they have opted to play for the United States Soccer Academy.

Verso would likely be the biggest loss for the Golden Knights.

Verso, the reigning All-Area Player of the Year, finished with a team-best 26 goals and 10 assists last season en route to securing All-CIF first-team accolades.

He was named the Mission League’s co-Offensive Player of the Year and had eight goals in seven postseason matches.
