West Florence’s Floyd Goodstein signs to play soccer at Tulsa
FLORENCE, SC − Floyd Goodstein isn’t shy about signing to play soccer at the University of Tulsa.
Tulsa may be a long way off, but the West Florence star already feels close to the program.
“Honestly, I never thought I would go to Oklahoma,” said Goodstein, who finished last season with 27 goals and 23 assists as a central attacking midfielder. “But their coaches gave me the opportunity. During my visit there, I felt like a good community. I saw that there were good people there and it felt like a family. With the others coaches, I didn’t have that feeling.
Goodstein, who practiced his scholarship signing last night, started football when he was 3 years old. At the age of 6, he was part of travel teams.
Then he grew even more as a player under Hall of Fame coach Billy Andrews in West.

“It’s been really good,” Goodstein said. “Honestly, I love all my friends there; the community and the classrooms – it’s all great. The sports are all community and family. (Sporting Director Greg Johnson) made it a family feeling. My friends are also on the soccer team. It’s a great environment; I wouldn’t want to go to another high school.
Now that Goodstein is on his way to an NCAA Division I program, he couldn’t be happier.
“I’m super excited; that’s all I worked for,” he said. “It was one of my dreams. I give all the glory to God. Anything that was difficult, I always went to him.
