Perry senior Tyler Soll will continue his football career in Sioux Center, where the 5-10, 290-pound lineman will join coach Joel Penner’s Dordt College Defenders.
Soll has started primarily at left guard along the offensive line during three years on the Perry varsity and also saw plenty of playing time at defensive tackle.
Voted a team captain, Soll earned First Team All-District honors while also being recogninzed as an Academic All-State player.
He had 37 tackles, two stops for negative yardage and two sacks last fall. He produced 86 total tackles — six for a loss — 2.5 sacks and a fumble recovery during his career.
Founded in 1955, Dordt College is a liberal arts school whose roots are tied to the Christian Reformed Movement. The Defenders compete at the NAIA level and are members of the Great Plains Athletic Conference.
The son of Brandon and Kandi Soll of Perry, Tyler intends to study Engineering at Dordt.
