Rhinos Announce Signing of Samuel Edoung-Biyo

By Rochester Rhinos, 04/19/17, 9:30AM EDT


Edoung-Biyo joins the Rhinos after attending open tryout back in December.

Samuel makes his professional debut with the Rochester Rhinos this season, after finishing his collegiate soccer at Sewanee back in 2012.

The midfielder scored 12 goals and had 5 assists in 70 matches over four years and earned 1st-team all-conference honors in 2012.  Edoung-Biyo is the Head Coach for the U18 Empire United boys soccer team locally.

"Sammy is a pleasant surprise. He came in through our open tryout back in December, then an invite tryout in January.  He came into preseason and worked hard to make the roster," Coach Lilley Stated, "He can play a few different positions and he's a good athlete that has a great physical presence.  We think he'll be able to contribute and play his part this year."
