“Madskill” Hileman Committs to Temple

Posted on February 22, 2013 by


Madison Hileman is a senior at Fleetwood Area High School who recently signed her national letter of intent to play goalie for Temple University’s girls’ soccer team.

Hileman started all four years on the high school girls’ soccer team, winning the team a Berks County Championship along with leading them to a District 3 final. Madison, or “Madskill,” is not only a soccer standout; she is also a talented field hockey goalie. She won a county championship in field hockey as well.

Due to the moving of girls’ soccer to the fall season, many athletes had to decide between soccer and field hockey. Hileman chose to play soccer over field hockey because the team was a family and she wanted to be a part of that one more year.

It wasn’t an easy choice for the reigning all-Berks county field hockey goalie and all-state honorable mention, but, after the successful season this year, it looks like Madskill made the right choice.

This year was a special year for the Fleetwood girls’ soccer team.  They won the county championship, beating powerhouse Wilson, and they were a District qualifier.

During Fleetwood’s historic run, Hileman led the Tigers the entire season. She not only stopped penalty kicks in the county championship to win the game, but she also scored one.

In her senior season, she was selected all-county for a second time along with an all-state selection. Madison also received Berks girls’ soccer player of the year.

“My most memorable moment from high school soccer was winning the county championship in penalty kicks, while the super fans chanted ‘Madskill’,” Hileman said.

“I was always very confident in Maddie.  She never had an off game and always made great saves. We could always count on her to make the big save.  We are going to really miss her next year,” teammate Bella Abrams said.

Last winter, Hileman verbally committed to Temple University to play soccer for the Owls. She gained a lot of college interest while playing for the travel team FC Delco.

Hileman talked to a few other colleges but decided that Temple was the place for her. She chose Temple because of their education program and their coaches.

She also liked what Temple had to say about their program, and she wanted that to be the place she spent her next four years. Hileman did not have any second thoughts and was excited to sign her national letter of intent in front of her family and friends.

When Madison isn’t playing soccer, she enjoys hanging out with friends, tweeting, and playing FIFA. She also enjoys being a Super Fan for Fleetwood sporting events. Attending Red- and White-outs are one of her favorite things to do while cheering for her school.

Hileman has had a historic career for Fleetwood in both soccer and field hockey. She is one of a few athletes to win two county championships in two different sports.

She accomplished a lot in her career at Fleetwood, but the accomplishment that means the most is this year’s soccer county championship.
