A moment with Oliver Wellman

He was one of the three to emerge from the tryout Saturday. A tall guy, only 22. Played at WWU. He just finished his senior season.

Wellman was born in Japan but came to Bellevue when he was 12. He played right midfielder in the final scrimmage Saturday on the advice of former coaches for the tryout, but was center midfield in college.

He’s a psychology major who minors in Japanese.

“It was fun. Hard,” Wellman said. “I was pretty confident coming into it. It’s not done yet. I still have a lot of work to do.”
