Over the past three years, the Virginia Tech men’s soccer program has ascended to new heights, winning 10 games or more and making the NCAA tournament each season, including 2016’s historic run to the Elite Eight. The program also reached the second round in 2017 and was a national seed in 2018, reaching the Sweet Sixteen. Four different student-athletes have earned All-ACC accolades and two Hokies have been selected in the MLS Draft.
During this three-year run, Tech has been dominant at home at Thompson Field, with the Hokies owning an 18-8-2 record.
YOUR support on Drive for 25 Day will assist our program in many aspects including:
Our continuous efforts in international recruiting as we work to get the best soccer players and top students to come to Blacksburg and succeed as Hokies!
- Provide funds for staff positions to ensure our student-athletes and coaching staff are efficiently and effectively operating to move the program forward.
- Help covering summer school expenses.
“With the success of the last three seasons, it has been encouraging to see high quality student-athletes want to be part of the men’s soccer program. Recruiting has become better as our team’s success continues. I am very pleased with the 10 young men who committed to our program. Our recruiting philosophy here at Virginia Tech is to start with Virginia and work our way out from there. Our coaching staff worked hard to get some of the top kids in the state of Virginia. We were also able to get a good blend of experienced players.
As we head into the 2019 season, I am really encouraged by the path our program is going in, and I am confident that the current players are committed to another amazing year. Our staff is anxiously awaiting getting back on the pitch with our new and returning players.”
