Evan Miele, Randolph Boys Soccer Star Goalie, Signs Letter to Play in College


RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph boys’ soccer goalie Evan Miele signed his National Letter of Intent on Feb. 1, to play soccer as a Goalkeeper at the University of Rhode Island starting fall 2017.

Surrounded by RHS administration, family, close friends, as well as his high school coach and varsity teammates, Miele posed for the traditional signing photos. Miele plans to study Criminal Justice at school.

“From the first time I visited URI, I felt completely at home,” said Miele. “I loved the location and what it had to offer academically for my major, but was most impressed by the coaching staff and players who made me feel like I was part of the team from my very first ID camp.”

Miele’s crowning moment of his Randolph career came in epic fashion, when he and his squad shut-out a powerful Delbarton team in the County Finals.  Miele put the dagger into the Green Wave as he made consecutive saves on penalty kicks to help the Rams win in a shootout.

“My best memory of RHS Soccer was definitely beating Delbarton in the 2016 county final – our first win since 1986,” said Miele.  “It was the perfect way to end my senior season, and is a moment that I will never forget.”

Miele backstopped the Rams soccer team in impressive fashion as a three year varsity starter, and was a vocal leader for a team that earned a reputation for having a top notch defense.  Miele made a point to work closely with his defensive mates to create cohesive bonds and build a “team” mentality along the backline. 

“Evan has been an integral part of the success of our program, and has demonstrated poise and leadership,” said Rams varsity soccer coach George Mousis. “During the season he kept the team focused and working hard.  Evan is an outstanding young man, we will miss him.”

Miele echoed similar sentiments when asked about his coaches.

“I have to thank Coach Mousis, Goldsworthy and Conlon for helping me develop into the player I am today,” said Miele.  “They were always there to push me, encourage me and support me. I know that Coach Mousis will continue to have great success in the future. “

Mousis offered some final words for Miele as he embarks on the next chapter of his life and his playing career, stating, “My message to Evan is simple… stay humble and stay hungry.”

Some post season honors Miele received were:

*Regional All-American / 2016

*1st Team All State - Named one of Top Five Goalkeepers in NJ 2016

*1st Team All Morris County / Morris County Player of the Year 2016

*Northwest Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) – 1st Team All-Conference 2016

*Daily Record Player of the Year 2016

*Muggs Media - Boys Soccer Player of the Year – Northwest NJ / 2016
