Biggs, Langley Sign with Marshall Women’s Soccer
They will be immediately eligible for the 2018 fall season
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall women’s soccer head coach Kevin Long announced the completion of his 2018 signing class with the additions of Lindsay Langley (Springfield, Ore.) and Emery Biggs (Clayton, N.C.) on Tuesday.
The two will join early enrollee Laura Farrelly and will be immediately eligible for the 2018 fall season.
Langley, a 5-4 goalkeeper, helped lead F.C. Portland to the championship league in the ECNL Playoffs in 2017. While she was with the Eugene Timbers, she led her club to three straight state championships from 2014-16 and the finals at the Surf Cup in 2015. Her individual accolades include being invited to U.S. training camps in 2014-15, logging 1,000 consecutive minutes between the posts, only allowing eight goals during the 2017 season for F.C. Portland and making nine saves in a half, where the Timbers won the contest 1-0.
At the high school level, she played her freshman and sophomore years and was named the team’s MVP in her first year with the team.
“Lindsay will come in to help bolster our position of goalkeeper,” Long said. “She is super athletic, very quick and explosive off her line and has fantastic shot stopping abilities. Lindsay is very competitive and is relentless in her efforts to keep the ball out of the net. Her training has prepared her very well for the challenges we will throw at her and I am certain she will be poised to step in and contribute at a very high level wherever that may be in our season.”
Biggs, a 5-6 midfielder/forward, led her high school to become the GNRC conference champions from 2015-17, led the Triangle Football Club Alliance to Region 3 championship in 2017 and the Region 3 Premier League champions from 2016-17. Individually, Biggs has scored 28 career goals and collected 36 assists, was named the Four Oaks Bank Cup Tournament MVP in 2017 and earned a varsity letter all four years of high school. Off the field, she was a member of the All-Academic team from 2015-17.
“Emery is a crafty player who demonstrates good vision and can be very dangerous on the ball, or with her passing game and finishing,” Long said. “In addition to her technical and tactical prowess, she brings a grittiness which we will want to grow among our team in the coming years. She invites contact in the way she plays and can be very elusive as opponents commit to defend her. She will be an exciting freshman to watch, for sure.”
