Getting defensive helps Ellis land spot at USC-L
CAMDEN HIGHS DAYSHA ELLIS signed a National Letter of Intent to continue her academic and soccer-playing pursuits at USC-Lancaster while flanked by her parents, Amanda and Billy Collini. Looking from behind is Lady Bulldog soccer coach Aaron Mayes.
As he and assistant coach Kenny Galdeen looked for answers to help solidify his team’s defense in the spring of 2017, Camden High girls’ soccer coach Aaron Mayes asked then-junior forward Daysha Ellis to give playing on the second-to-last line of defense a try. Within minutes, Mayes found an answer to part of his team’s defensive issues as Ellis stayed put and became a staple on defense for the Lady Bulldogs. The move paid off not just for Camden but for Ellis and, in the immediate future, for USC-Lancaster which signed the Lady Bulldog senior to a National Letter of Intent.
