Three former York-Adams League boys' soccer players will suit up next season for NCAA Division III Virginia Wesleyan College.

Former York Suburban teammates Zach Landis and Tanner Martin will join former Dallastown defenseman Colby Herrington at Virginia Wesleyan, where former York College men's player Evan Scheffey was recently named the new head coach. Virginia Wesleyan went 8-10-2 last season.

Martin is the most accomplished of the bunch after being voted York-Adams Division II Player of the Year after the 2012 season in which he scored 12 goals and tallied 17 assists.

He and Landis led the Trojans to a perfect regular season to claim the Division II crown. York Suburban finished 18-2 on the year after falling to Tulpehocken, 2-1, in the District 3-AA quarterfinals.

Landis, who mostly spent his time on defense, had four goals and nine assists last season, according to coach Tony Kowalewski. Landis came back from a knee injury that caused him to miss the entire 2011 season.

Herrington helped Dallastown win the Division I title and finish the season with a 17-5. The Wildcats lost, 4-0, to Carlisle in the first round of the District 3-AAA tournament.

"He didn't score any goals or stuff like that but he was just a rock for us in the back and the center," Dallastown coach Jim Reinalda said of Herrington. "He was one of the primary reasons we were 17-5 and we did as well as we did."
