  3. Congratulations to Ben Lundt on a fantastic professional debut for Louisville FC last night...
  4. Might as well start this, and we can add to it when we have more information. We/I have not seen the Spring schedule yet, but I for one cannot wait to see our team back in action. I'm especially interested to see who steps up to potentially replace Ben Lundt and Abdi Mohamed as starters. Of course, we're still awaiting the official announcement of our 2019 recruiting class. Although, for 2019, the Soccer signing period began November 14, 2018, our coaches and team were a little busy at the time. Very much looking forward to reading about the talented players who will be joining our championship caliber program.

  13. Chat with Coach Embick

    I've only gotten part way through the podcast with Ger. Also, very informative and interesting. A great assistant coach whom we are very lucky to have. Jared, Ger, and I'm certain Michael are all very hardworking and committed to our program and student-athletes. I couldn't be happier with our "organization".
  14. Chat with Coach Embick

    Great podcast with Jared. Lots of stuff about him and Caleb and how Caleb brought him to Akron as well as their approaches to the game. Very much enjoyed listening. Thanks for posting @TennZip
  15. Chat with Coach Embick

    Also, I noticed that Ger Coppinger did the podcast back on June 6, 2018. ... SC051 "When the University of Akron calls, you have to take the call..."
  16. Chat with Coach Embick

    Jared mentioned on the podcast that TJ had left the Zips... Best wishes to TJ. Great coach and person. Gonna miss him but I'm sure Jared will find another excellent assistant.
