Grand Rapids, MI – Grand Rapids Football Club has announced the signing of former Milwaukee Torrent utility man Samuel Biek.
Biek, 21, can play as a holding center midfielder or a center back. He is originally from Malburg, Germany, where he played for TSG Wieseck and was named to the All State Hessen Team. He came to the States to play at Bethel College, and has played three seasons for the Pilots. He has captained the side the last two seasons while making 63 appearances, scoring a staggering 20 goals in that time. He was named NCCAA All-American three times, while also garnering Crossroads League All Conference and Player of the Week awards.
In his time with Milwaukee Torrent, the versatile Biek started all twelve league games in the NPSL, scoring one goal during the 2018 campaign.
“I am very excited to join this great organization” said Biek. “This summer is going to be special and I can’t wait to play with a fantastic team in front of GRFC’s amazing fans.”
GRFC Head Coach Lewis Robinson commented “We are really excited to get Sam with us this summer. We were very close to him joining us last year and we felt we really missed out after watching him perform so well during the 2018 season so we are thrilled that it’s finally worked out for him to join us. He can play as a center back or a center midfielder and will bring a lot of stability to our team this summer.”
