  • Prairie View's Coleman stays in state for soccer

    There was a time during Deljanae Coleman's recruiting process that she wanted to go to Arizona. One reason is pretty obvious. It's warmer.

    But that's not where the Prairie View senior is heading.

    "I felt like Northeastern (Junior College in Sterling) was more of a home than a place to go to school and play soccer," she said. "I enjoyed the coach and my team. I went to a camp to get a scholarship and meet the coach (Ken McAlpine). He took me on a tour the next day and had me meet the team. I enjoyed it."
