PORT ANGELES – The defending NWAACC champion Pirate men’s soccer team is reloading for the 2014 season and that team will include three outstanding recruits in Trevan Estrellado and Micah Weller of Cheney, WA, and Chris Chertude of Portland, OR.

Estrellado, a 5-10 midfielder from Cheney High School, was a three-year high school starter who helped the Blackhawks win a high school state championship in 2013. He was named All-State, Second Team. He was a Washington State ODP pool player and was on the Hawaii and Idaho State ODP teams.

“We have been watching Trevan for three years now,” said Andrew Chapman, Peninsula College Head Coach and Director of Soccer. “His sister, Bri, is just finishing with our women’s team. Trevan is a quick player who is very explosive in his first few steps. He can play inside or outside midfield and has the ability to play box to box on the field.  He hits a great free kick which is something we have struggled with over the past few years.”

Weller, a 6-0 forward midfielder from Cheney High, was named First Team All-State and scored the winning goal in the 2013 state championship. He is also a Washington State ODP pool player.

“Micah is another player we have been watching for some years,” Chapman said. “He is very strong on the ball with very good speed. He is able to get up and down the field and understands his runs very well.  He can score goals while also setting his teammates up.”
