MADISON, Ala. (WHNT)- Bob Jones senior forward Katie Bell is taking her talents to the collegiate level but she isn't going far. Bell signed to play soccer at UAH on Monday.
"I've been playing ever since I was eight. Realizing I wanted to play college soccer...it's really hard to do," said Bell. "Just going to camps and talking to coaches and just building up the skills you know you need. It just makes it possible. I'm really excited for this."
Her decision wasn't solely based on soccer. Bell wants to study mechanical engineering and UAH provides her with that opportunity. Being close to home is also an added bonus.
"I love my family. Being able to go home whenever I need my parents helps a lot and the campus...I went and toured the campus and I just fell in love with it."
The Patriots' team captain has eight goals and 10 assists this season.
