PSU Keeper Commits to College
Ben Holtzen has committed to play college soccer at St. Norbert College, an NCAA Division III school in De Pere. Ben has been the starting goalkeeper on the PS United premier team, coached by Brian Schmidt, for the past four seasons. He is also the starting goalkeeper at Hamilton HS.
Ben and his family have been supporters of their community club for years. Ben played with Sussex Soccer Club prior to the clubs merging in 2012, and his younger sister currently plays for PSU on the U11 Select Red team. Ben’s mom, Kathy Holtzen, said “PSU was an awesome experience. Pewaukee Sussex United is a smaller club, but is able to hang with some of the biggest clubs in and out of state.”
The team has consistently finished in the top half of the premier league table and won many tournaments as a result of Ben anchoring the defense with outstanding goalkeeping.
“PSU and Coach Brian played a major role in making me who I am today. My teammates who I can now call brothers, have always supported and encouraged me to do my best,” said Ben Holtzen.
Ben has great technique and is a really good shot stopper. His confidence has grown each year and his decision making on the field is excellent. Congratulations Ben, great achievement. PSU, your coach, and your teammates are very proud of you!
