He became the captain of the club in just his second season with the team. Prugh was also nominated for the Unibet.com League Midfielder of the Year and a finalist for the Kurirenbollen, the award for best player in the North of Sweden.

“Eddy is a player we are excited about to bring in,” said Head Coach Steve Trittschuh of Prugh. “He has had success with Bodens BK in Sweden. He is a fantastic two way player that will help solidify the center of midfield for us. I expect him to contribute a lot this season..”

Prior to his time with Bodens BK, Prugh was part of the Portland Timbers U-23 squad after his college career where he spent time at Whitworth (Washington) and Oregon State before graduating from Marshall University. Prugh was a two-time first Team All-State selection in Montana at Bozeman Senior High where he was a four year member of the varsity team and a three time State Cup runner-up.

“I’m so happy to be back in the Rockies and in Colorado which I’ve also seen as a strong soccer state,” said Prugh on joining the Switchbacks. “I can’t wait to meet up with the guys and Coach [Steve] Trittschuh and continue to build the winning culture that they’ve had over the last two seasons.”
