After a stellar high school career, Logan & Chase Gilley
were planning to play college soccer at Appalachian State University; but App State decided to cut some of its intercollegiate sports programs and soccer was one of them.

The Gilley twins were younger than most 2020 graduates, so they had time to decide where they might want to go, including the possibility of skipping collegiate soccer and continuing to work on their game elsewhere--either with a special soccer club in Charlotte or possibly even Europe.

This week, they committed to play at UNC-Greensboro. Their mother, Tammy Gilley, said the twins are also excited about having been chosen as two of the 52 players selected nationally as United Soccer Coaches High School Scholar All Americans.

Those who watched them at East Lincoln High School know--these young men are special. Very, very few high school athletes--even stars--have what it makes to succeed not only in college sports but to play professionally. The Gilley twins do.

In 2022, Charlotte will have a professional soccer team. Down the road, we may see Chase & Logan playing professionally there--or elsewhere. For now, it's now that far to Greensboro--and we'll hope to catch them in action there when the college game resumes.
