Taullie signs to play soccer in college

Brady senior Taina Taullie was 5 years old when she first started playing soccer on AYSO teams in North Platte.

It’s something she’s always loved to do.

Last week she made an official decision to continue kicking her way through college.

Taullie signed a letter of intent on March 23 to play soccer for Central Christian College in McPherson, KS.

“I like being outside on the field and I like being a part of a team,” Taullie said.

But a major reason she chose CCC of Kansas is that the school offers the type of degree she wants.

Taullie hopes to one day be a song writer so she will pursue a degree in contemporary Christian music while at CCC of Kansas.

Tiger coach Mike Reimer said Taullie will bring great athletic ability to his team.

“She is fast, very fast,” Reimer said. “I think that will be great for our team.”

At the same time, the college coach labeled Taullie as an outstanding person.

“She’s the type of person anyone would want to have on a team,” he said.

Taullie will receive both athletic and academic scholarships from the college which is both a National Association Intercollegiate Athletics and National Christian College Athletic Association member school.

Taullie said she is looking forward to wearing her new No. 2 jersey.
