In 2016 the Eastern Oregon University men’s soccer team is a well oiled goal scoring machine. Stan Rodrigues sees his squad score 52 times during his last season as the ‘Mountaineers’ head coach. After appointing Kenny Huber, only the second men’s soccer head coach in the history of Eastern Oregon University, the number of goals decreases. In an attempt to build a fearsome forward line once more Eastern Oregon University recently signed Hugo Trijbels, who scored 15 goals for his club this season already.
The physically strong forward started his soccer career at age 4 at BFC Bussum, where he scored one goal after another in the youth teams. In the U15 squad he scores 31 goals in 23 games and also gives 10 assists. Despite the team falling just short of promotion it was an excellent season for Hugo in the U17 team; in 22 games he managed to score 27 goals, which lead to him winning the ‘player of the year’ award.
Early January 2018, even before finishing his highlight soccer recruitment video, Hugo makes first contact with his new US school. After making an impression at the KingsTalent Soccer Showcase in January 2018 the 17-year old striker is officially recruited by Eastern Oregon University, who would love to sign the goal scorer. At this moment the intense recruitment process has been completed and Hugo Hugo may officially call himself a ‘Mountaineer’.
