Andre Mayberry signs with the University of the Cumberlands

Andre Mayberry, a three-year starter at goalkeeper for the Mason County Royals, will take his talents to the University of Cumberlands, but he will miss the 2017 college soccer season because he is also committed to the U.S. Army Reserve.

Mayberry signed his letter of intent this afternoon.

He said he received an email from the University of the Cumberlands, and he attended a camp at the school located in Williamsburg, Kentucky.

"I just loved it down there, it reminded me so much of Maysville, and the program is good, the coach is new, and it was the easy choice for me," Mayberry said.

Mayberry will leave July 25 for basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. He will be a combat engineer. He will begin his college education during the second semester.

Mayberry said he told the coach when he gets back "first that's going to be on my mind is soccer, first thing, soon as I get back, there will be a ball on my foot."

Mayberry was one of the Royals' captains. He had five shutouts his senior season.

Mason County coach Andy Bisotti said he "couldn't be more proud of Andre; he's got a good record under his belt, and we were what we were because of guys like him and his leadership on and off the field."

Mayberry said he was undecided on a major.
