Tyler Krebsbach is about to embark on his senior season of soccer at White River High, knowing his athletic future will be played out in the Hawkeye State.

Krebsbach recently signed a national letter-of-intent to play collegiately at Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa.

Krebsbach next week begins his fourth year with the White River varsity. He also has played seven years with the Maple Valley Rapids 96 and is a member of PSPL Academy, a statewide team that has traveled to “college showcase” tournaments in California, Oregon, Idaho and Canada. It was while playing in a tournament in Turlock, Calif., that Krebsbach was spotted by Clarke coach Steve Moore.

Krebsbach has received both an academic and athletic scholarship to Clarke University, where he plans to pursue a degree in business.

“Tyler is a quality addition to our program,” Moore said. “He’s confident on the ball and will give us a solid attacking option on the right flank.”

The Clarke University Crusaders play in the Midwest Collegiate Conference and are members of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.

The seven-member Midwest Conference consists of six institutions from Iowa – Grand View University, Mount Mercy University, Saint Ambrose University, William Penn University and the AIB College of Business, plus Clarke – and Viterbo University in Wisconsin.
