SCOTLAND – Iona College men's soccer forward Killian Colombie has been invited to train with the Heart of Midlothian FC reserves. This the just one of the many steps for the Gael forward as he looks to establish a professional career once he graduates from Iona College in December.
Colombie came to the Maroon & Gold from Paris, France and established himself as an offensive weapon on both the left and the right side.
Over the summer before the fall 2018 season, Colombie played for the Albion Hurricanes FC Royals based out of Houston, TX in the Premier Developmental League (USLPDL) Mid-South Division. He led the team and tied for the conference-best with 10 goals. His five assists were a team-best and ranked second in the league. Colombie's efforts helped the Royals to a 7-7-0, third place finish. The Royals were one of three teams with a goal differential of zero.
His efforts placed him among 50 student-athletes on the initial PDL College Prospect List.
Once the Iona season began, Colombie continued his offensive torrent with a career-best season. He started in all 18 games he appeared in, scoring a personal-best seven goals and three assists. Colombie was named to the All-MAAC First Team for the first time in his career.
Colombie finishes his Iona career ranked tied for ninth all-time in shots attempted (119) and shots on goal (48). He ended his career with 15 goals, six assists and three game-winning goals.
In addition to securing a training spot with Edinburgh, Colombie has been invited to train with the Major League Soccer programs, the New York Red Bulls and San Jose Earthquakes, during the winter.
