WMU soccer adds two with local ties

Western Michigan University announced the signing of three men's soccer players for its 2010-11 season, including a pair of players — Troy High senior Joe Beshara and Oakland University transfer Ryan Barrett — with local ties.
A first-team all-state forward, and the Colts' leading scorer the past two years, Beshara led Troy to a 21-3-3 record as a senior. He also played for the Michigan Wolves club team, which was ranked No. 1 in the nation for a large portion of its season.
"He is a natural goal-scorer who is not afraid to do the dirty work required to create openings for himself or others," second-year WMU head coach Stu Riddle said in a release.
Listed as a top-20 recruit out of high school at East Grand Rapids by, Barrett did not see any playing time for OU in the fall.
"I am excited that Ryan has chosen to join us here at WMU," Riddle said. "He is a player with excellent pedigree, and he certainly has the ability to come in right away and start for us."
The Broncos also added Luis Esquivel, a native of Mexico City, Mexico.
