UIS' Doellman has unfinished business on soccer field

Quincy natives Brian Doellman and Anthony Longo grew up playing soccer together, so when Longo made a commitment to attend the University of Illinois Springfield, Doellman took a campus visit and knew that’s where he wanted to spend his college career.

“Anthony and I have played on traveling teams together since we were about 12, and we’ve known each other longer than that,” Doellman said. “When he came here, I knew it was at least a place I had to look at.

“When I visited, I liked the campus, the town, the academics, and the tradition, so the decision wasn’t too difficult. I felt comfortable here. This was the right place for me.”

Doellman's comments were featured in a September 19, 2009 edition of the State Journal-Register.
