SEWANEE, Tenn. (June 20, 2017) – Former Sewanee standout men's soccer student-athlete Samuel Edoung-Biyo, C'13, has signed a professional contract with the Rochester Rhinos of the USL.
As a midfield for the Tigers, Edoung-Biyo scored 12 goals and had five assists in 70 matches. During his career, he was a 2012 All-SAA First-Team selection.
"Sammy is a pleasant surprise. He came in through our open tryout back in December, then an invite tryout in January," said Rochester Head Coach Lilley Stated. "He came into preseason and worked hard to make the roster. He can play a few different positions and he's a good athlete that has a great physical presence. We think he'll be able to contribute and play his part this year."
