Between recreational, club, middle school, and high school soccer, Sycamore High School senior Kyleigh Binkley has dedicated the past 13 years of her life to the sport. She will now take her experience to the next level at Columbia State Community College located in Columbia, Tennessee. 

“Being able to play at the next level means that I get to further my career and continue doing what I love in a new environment where I will learn more about myself and the sport,' Binkley says.

Known around the community and beyond for her on-field skill, Binkley has racked up an impressive list of achievements over the past 10-plus years as a student athlete. 

In her four years as a Lady War Eagle, Binkley tallied a total of 41 goals and 12 assists. She was named to the all-district tournament team as a freshman, and was offensive team MVP and the Golden Boot winner as a sophomore. Her junior year, she was named offensive team MVP and landed both all-district and all-tournament honors, and was named the district tournament MVP.

In 2023, her final year as a Lady War Eagle, Binkley was named both team offensive MVP and the district’s offensive player of the year.

At the moment, Binkley is unsure what post high school path she will choose, but she has interest in exercise science and social work.

“I only got the pleasure of coaching and knowing Kyleigh for one year,” says Sycamore soccer coach Tyler Turpin. “What I will say about her is she is someone who gives her all in everything she does. She gave her all everyday and in every play. She always wanted to win and be the best, and that’s something you can’t teach. I have no doubt this will set her up for success not only at Columbia State, but throughout her life.”

“It has been so fun watching Kyleigh grow up playing soccer, says Binkley’s Rampage coach, Lee Wilson. “Kyleigh displays so many amazing attributes but there are some that really stick out to me. She has always been a leader. One of the things I have noticed lately is that sometimes because of her will to win and her desire to be great, she can sometimes be hard on herself… but the amazing thing is, she is always there to pick up her teammates. She is an amazing teammate that always keeps us loose. Kyleigh is a coaches dream player. She never misses a practice and she is very coachable. Kyleigh is a natural scorer. She is strong and tough and has natural scoring instincts. Her quick release is special. It has been an honor to watch Kyleigh play since she was seven years old and I know she is going to do great things at Columbia State!”
