For Wulf Goheen, dreams do come true.
The St. Joseph Flyers 5-foot-10 senior point guard realized a life-long dream to play college basketball after signing a letter-of-intent to play for the Kentucky Christian Knights.
After sifting through numerous NAIA and NCAA Division III schools and their offers, Goheen was all smiles after realizing his dream was now a reality.
“It’s a big relief. It’s been a dream of mine since I was little,” said Goheen. “I’m blessed by God to have the opportunity to play at the next level.”
Goheen signed with the Knights and is looking forward to playing for coach Grady Lowe who is in his first season as the head coach and eighth year overall with the program after coaching for 26 years at West Carter High School.
He’s well aware that playing college basketball will be a big step up.
“It’s a new challenge, for sure,” said Goheen. “I’ll be starting out like I did as a freshman in high school. I’ll be slower and weaker. I’ll have to work hard to adapt.
“But I’m going to set another goal and work hard to get stronger. Hopefully, I can do the things I need to do to play. I want to be at the next level.”
While Goheen is a point guard for the Flyers, he said his role will probably change with the Knights.
“I’ll fell whatever role they want me to be. They’re stacked with guards this year and next year. They’re a great team,” said Goheen. “I could be a point guard, but I think right now they are looking at me as a two.”
St. Joseph head coach Jeremy Williams said Goheen will be a great addition to the KCU program.
“Beyond basketball, Wulf is a great kid, a good student and he has the type of character any coach would love to have in a player,” said Williams.
“Wulf plays hard, he works hard, he has a lot of ability and he’s a great leader. The biggest thing is his desire to win and do whatever it takes. He’s a team player and never worries about his personal stats.”
With his college future decided, Goheen is turning his full attention to the upcoming season.
“This is a big weight off my shoulders,” said Goheen. “I can now focus on this year and focus on our expectations.”
Wulf is the son of Joe Goheen and Ingrid White.
