“My favorite thing about soccer is the brotherhood that comes from the guys you’re teammates with,” he said. “One of the most rewarding opportunities had from soccer is being able to represent UMHB through the game I love to play.”

Off the field, Poole likes to produce and write music. One day he would like to score the music for a movie.

Last season Poole played in all 17 games as a reserve midfielder. He scored a total of three goals. Two of the goals happened to be thrilling game winners.

He ranked third on the team in goals made, and added one assist.

As a leader, Poole hopes to  contribute in more ways this season.
