TOP LOCAL PLAYER ENROLLS, PLANS TO PLAY SOCCER AT UNH

DURHAM, N.H. - A.J. DuBois (Acworth, N.H.), the New Hampshire Gatorade player of the year and an All-American in high school soccer, has enrolled at the University of New Hampshire and plans to join the men's soccer team beginning in the 2005 season.

"It's always good to see a New Hampshire product and All-American choose the state university," UNH head coach Rob Thompson said.

At Fall Mountain Regional High School, DuBois scored 16 goals and added 17 assists in his senior year, becoming the first player in school history to reach 40 goals and 40 assists in a career. He was named First Team All-State in both his junior and senior seasons.

In 2002, DuBois was a member of the regional pool in the Olympic Development Program (ODP). He has played for the Classics club team the past three years, helping the squad to the state championship in 2003.

"A.J. has great size and physical attributes to go along with technical ability," said Thompson. "He will be a positive addition to our team."

DuBois joins a program that has qualified for the America East tournament in three of the past four seasons and returns 16 letterwinners from the 2004 squad that took Binghamton to penalty kicks in the conference tournament quarterfinals.
