WEST POINT, Ga. – Point University head men's soccer coach Jonathan Lenarz has added midfielder Salvador Velazquez, a 2016 graduate from Habersham Central High School in Mt. Airy, Ga., to his 2017-18 squad.


"Salvador was personally recommended to Coach Callahan and me by current Skyhawk senior Juan Domingo and was a standout at an open tryout earlier this year," commented Coach Lenarz.  "After taking a gap year in 2016-17, Salvador is very motivated to come in and have an effect on the team.  He is a great wing player that could quickly make the jump to the Point first team and make a contribution during his first season."


Velazquez played two seasons of varsity soccer for Habersham Central and was coached by Rick Wallace.  He received the Raider Award and Coaches Award after his senior season in 2016.


Velazquez commented on why he chose Point as the place where he will continue his education and competitive soccer career, "I really liked the small-town location of the school and how the University was small enough to get to know everyone.  It felt just like home."
