April 4, 2013

Tony HaltermanGreencastle, Ind. - Former DePauw men’s soccer player, goalkeeper Tony Halterman, has signed his first professional contract with the Kitsap Pumas of the Premier Development League. The Pumas' first game is slated for May 4 at 7 p.m. (PT) against the Victoria Highlanders.

The Kitsap Pumas are based out of Bremerton, Wash., and play their home contests at Bremerton Memorial Stadium. Founded in 2008, the Pumas play in the PDL’s Northwest Division of the Western Conference.

Halterman, a 2012 second-team all-NCAC honoree, led the Tigers to a 14-2-5 record in his senior campaign, including a conference tournament championship and reaching the NCAA Championship’s round-of-32.

Tony HaltermanIn his final season in Greencastle, Ind., Halterman posted a .784 save percentage, and a measly 0.85 goals against average. Playing over 2,000 minutes last season in goal, Halterman allowed only 19 goals, approximately one per 106 minutes played.

During his four years playing for DePauw, Halterman’s squad tallied a 57-12-8 record including a 30-7-3 mark in conference play.

Halterman is head coach Brad Hauter’s second student-athlete to sign a professional contract in as many years as former DePauw goalkeeper Nathan Sprenkel played last season with both the Antigua Barracudas of the United Soccer League’s PRO division and the Chicago Soul of the Major Indoor Soccer League.
