SAMUEL SCHWARZ | MIDFIELDER | TRAUNSTEIN, GERMANY | SIENA
A product of Traunstein, Germany, Schwarz comes to the New River Valley from Siena College where he played for two seasons. After being named to the All-Oberliga Starting XI team in Germany’s top amateur league, he didn’t see any playing time as a true freshman for the Saints.
Schwarz earned a larger role as a sophomore, appearing in 18 matches and starting 13 of them. He notched four goals and added an assist for nine total points, taking home Metro Athletic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Rookie of the Week honors twice. He also excelled in the classroom, earning a spot on the MAAC Academic Honor Roll.
COACH BARRETT ON SCHWARZ
“Sammy is a dynamic midfielder who should make a positive impact on our team right away. His maturity and work ethic will be a great example for our younger players.”
JARED DUBOSE | FORWARD | WOODBRIDGE, VA. | TEMPLE
A native of Woodbridge, Va., Dubose played forward at C.D. Hylton High School where he earned First-Team All-District, First-Team All-State, First-Team All-Region, and First-Team All-DMV honors as a standout for the Bulldogs. He was named Player of the Year by both the Cardinal District and Region 6C and committed to play at Temple University.
Dubose did not see any game action as a freshman with the Owls so he will now look to break through and make his collegiate debut with the Highlanders.
COACH BARRET ON DUBOSE
“Jared has the potential to be a dangerous attacking player for us. He has all the tools to be able to create and score goals for us.”
TALLON ALLWAY | GOALKEEPER | ASHBURN, VA. | VIRGINIA WESLEYAN
Another native of the commonwealth, Allway comes to Radford from Virginia Wesleyan. He made just one appearance, getting 14 minutes in a 4-0 victory over Emory & Henry on March 21, 2021.
He’ll have a chance to boost the already-solid goalkeeping depth that the Highlanders should enjoy in the 2022 season and beyond.
COACH BARRETT ON ALLWAY
“Tallon’s work ethic and overall positive attitude will be a great addition to our current crop of quality goalkeepers. He will set a great example for our younger players on and off the field.”
The Highlanders are coming off a rebuilding year in which they posted a 5-11 record overall and a 3-5 record in Big South Conference play. Forward Yoshiya Okawa was named Virginia Rookie of the Year and second-team all-state as well as all-Big South second team thanks to six goals and one assist. Goalkeeper Joseba Incera also earned all-conference honors after leading the entire nation with 5.92 saves per game.
