Four sophomore players from the Casper College Men’s Soccer team have signed to play at four-year schools. The players are Chanhwi Jung, HeeJun An, David Viscosi, and Keita Chochi.

T-Bird center back Jung is from Incheon, South Korea. He signed with the University of Massachusetts Amherst Minutemen, an NCAA D1 school. The Minutemen play in the Atlantic 10 Conference. “His defense was key to helping the men’s soccer team to a No. 2 finish in Region IX. Chanhwi was a two-time all-Region player for us, has an unbelievable motor, and never stops working,” said Ben McArthur, Casper College Men’s Soccer team head coach.

An outside back or center midfielder for the T-Birds, An has signed with the NCAA DI Winthrop University Eagles. The Eagles compete in the Big South Conference. “An was a regular starter and a fantastic player and teammate,” said McArthur. An is from Siheung, South Korea.

Viscosi, a center for the Birds, has signed to play with the NCAA D2 St. Cloud State University Huskies, who compete in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. “David had a great year and played a key role in helping the team achieve five shutouts on the year. He was a captain and natural leader on our team,” noted McArthur. Viscosi is from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

According to McArthur, Chochi was a winger who scored four goals and five assists in his two seasons with the T-Birds. Chochi, who comes from Fukuoka, Japan, is headed to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics member LSU Shreveport to play for the LSUS Pilots. The Pilots compete in the Red River Athletic Conference.

“These four young men have been a pleasure to have in my program and have put in the work in the classroom and on the soccer field to allow themselves the chance to transfer to these top programs. They have set the bar for what it means to be a CC Men’s Soccer player. We will miss them but look forward to seeing their future success,” McArthur said.
