March 11, 2009
HARROGATE, TN - Lincoln Memorial University Head Soccer Coach Helio D'Anna has received word that Erik Biddinger will be wearing an LMU jersey in 2009. Bidinger is an American citizen born in Eschenbach, Germany. A 5'7" midfielder, Bidinger has played soccer for Vilseck High School as well as for the SV Grafenwohr soccer club. This year in high school Bidinger had 14 goals and 21 assists while talling four goals and five assists in club soccer. His honors include 2007 All-Europe, all-tournament, all-conference, Team MVP and 2008 all-region.
Erik has also been a part of the Olympic Development Program (ODP) since 2003. The ODP program seeks to find talented American citizens living overseas to compose the USA National Team. Thomas Dooley is a more recognizable example of it.
"Erik is a great and easy player to coach," says his former Coach Hans Mossbauer. "He can play anywhere on the field." "I am very happy to have Erik join the team," says LMU Head Coach Helio D'Anna. "Due to his father serving in the military, Erik grew up playing at the highest level in Germany. It's exciting that he is coming back to America and chose LMU to play his collegiate soccer career."
Erik is a member of the National Society of High School Scholars and will pursue Physical Therapy/Sports Medicine while attending LMU. He is the son of Bill and Suzanne Bidinger.
