SEATTLE, WA— Cody Buchanan came north to Seattle from San Jose to play college soccer at Seattle University. This summer he is also putting on the kit of the defending EPLWA Champion Seattle Stars. So far, so great. Cody leads the early season scoring table with 4 goals.
Recently Buchanan scored a hat trick for the Stars that earned him #HometownSoccer Player of the Week honors.
Breaking into the starting 11 at a soccer school like Seattle U is an ongoing challenge. Buchanan played in 9 matches for the Redhawks in 2017, starting 1. He scored two goals in a preseason win over Trinity Western. Cody has also played for local NPSL side OSA FC (Seattle.)
Now he’s getting a chance for extended playing time with the Stars in the EPLWA. To repeat the earlier critique: So far, so great.
