Fletcher adds Cookeville standout to 2010 soccer signing class

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Tech soccer coach Becky Fletcher has added to her 2010 signing class with the addition of Cookeville standout forward Jessica Wilson.

Wilson was named Cookeville High Offensive MVP, Team MVP and earned district MVP honors as well in 2009, after scoring 28 goals to go along with 10 assists, leading her team to a 14-3 record and a district championship. She earned four letters in soccer at Cookeville High for coach Sam Matson, finishing her career with 52 goals and 33 assists. Wilson plays club soccer for Blount United for coach Tom Leonard.

"We are very excited about the addition of Jessica Wilson to the Tennessee Tech family,” Fletcher said. “She is an athletic forward who has a knack for the goal.  She is a local talent who has excelled on the field and in the classroom."

Wilson also competes on the Cookeville High School track and field team, competing in the 4x100 and 4x200 relays, as well as discus and triple jump. She plans to study business at Tech.

Wilson is the fifth player to sign with Tech’s 2010 signing class, joining four other high school seniors who committed to Tech earlier this month.
