Northeast Lauderdale High School soccer standout Cody Thompson signed with Meridian Community College Wednesday.
Thompson started playing soccer at five years old, and has played on the first string varsity soccer team at Northeast since eighth grade. He played on the 2001 State of Mississippi America's Cup Championship Team, and has won bronze, silver, and gold medals in the State Games of Mississippi.
Thompson was recently selected as a United States All American Scholar, and recorded a 26 on the ACT. Thompson was also inducted into the 2002-2003 National Honor Roll.
Thompson said knowing players on the soccer team at MCC helped his decision.
Meridian Community College head soccer coach Alex George said Thompson will be a great addition to MCC.
George also said the MCC soccer program is coming along since it was started two years ago.
