Mountaineers have the unique opportunity to represent themselves, their teammates and their university to news media, alumni, friends, family and the general public. Your interaction with these groups also is part of your educational process. If you take advantage of these opportunities, it can have a positive effect, not only on your career as a student-athlete at West Virginia, but also on your life after you have donned the Old Gold and Blue.

ALL-AMERICANS When talent meets coaching, the result is undeniable as evidenced by the WVU men’s soccer program under head coach Marlon LeBlanc. LeBlanc has produced five of WVU’s 14 overall All-American selections, including first teamer’s Nick Noble and Jarrod Smith in 2006. In 2011, Eric Schoenle added to the list as he earned second team NSCAA All-America honors after a standout junior season. Previously in 2010, Raymon Gaddis was named a third team All-America by Top Drawer Soccer. Gaddis now stars for the Philadelphia Union of the MLS. Each year, the Mountaineer soccer roster is filled with talent, looking for the next All-America performer.

PROZONE Starting in 2009, the WVU coaching staff implemented ProZone into its every day schedule - a program used around the globe by some of the top national and premier clubs. The software can be used in all facets of the game, whether it is scouting, statistical analysis or video analysis of both WVU and that day’s opponent. The MatchViewer feature is extremely detailing, allowing coaches to see how many passes an athlete had in a game, the length of a pass to a teammate, or from where on the field they took shots. It also breaks up the field into regions, showing where players often were on the field, where they delivered passes, or even which players they passed to throughout the span of a match. From there, the coaches can have a meeting with an individual or an entire unit, such as the midfield, and actually show them video segments from the game. Once the clips are cut and stored, any member of the coaching staff can recall the clips without having to sort through all of the game footage. When the tape is broken down for each athlete, players can take a CD home with them to watch their performance.

THERE IS NOT A VERSION OF ANOTHER PIECE OF SOFTWARE THAT’S BEEN MADE TO FIT SOCCER. THE BEST CLUBS IN THE WORLD USE PROZONE LIKE THE MOUNTAINEERS.

2012 MEN’S SOCCER

GAME DAY IN MORGANTOWN Mountaineer fans pack the stands to be the extra man, knowing their voices makes a difference. They come early, they like to be heard and they stay until the final whistle blows. It’s the kind of noise that turns a home field into a home-field advantage and makes it difficult for visiting teams to come away with a victory. The stands at Dick Dlesk are buzzing with a boisterous student section that sits just feet away from the playing field. Fans throughout the state and the Mountaineer Maniacs come out to cheer on the Old Gold and Blue. Since the 2006 season, West Virginia men’s soccer has drawn 25 crowds better than 1,000 fans at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium, making it one of the most intimidating environments in all of college soccer. The past three seasons have seen the Mountaineers ranked in the Top 25 in home attendance and WVU has a 16-4 combined home record during the past two seasons. The Mountaineers also drew a school-record 2,938 fans on opening night in 2009 against UC-Santa Barbara.

SINCE THE 2006 SEASON, WEST VIRGINIA MEN’S SOCCER HAS DRAWN 25 CROWDS BETTER THAN 1,000 FANS AT DICK DLESK SOCCER STADIUM, MAKING IT ONE OF THE MOST INTIMIDATING ENVIRONMENTS IN ALL OF COLLEGE SOCCER. 2012 MEN’S SOCCER

DICK DLESK SOCCER STADIUM Completed for the 2004 season, renovations to Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium made the facility one of the finest in the nation, since hosting five men’s NCAA tournament matches and one conference tournament. Named in honor of a generous gift from Mr. Dlesk, the facility is a two-level, 1,650-seat stadium that features grandstand bleachers, a spacious five-booth press box, an on-site locker room, restrooms and concession booths. The most recent renovation was in May 2010, when the surface underwent a laser-leveling transformation to install natural grass, giving the field an iridescent, brand new look. Also included in the overhaul was an extensive drainage and irrigation system to prevent inclement weather from harming the playing surface. The Bill Maloney Press Box features areas for game operations, working media and hospitality. Wireless internet access is available for working media members, allowing them follow the action in a climate-controlled environment. The original press box, located behind the team benches, is now used for TV talent and filming crews.

MEN’S SOCCER PRACTICE FACILITY The Mountaineer men’s soccer squad stepped foot on it’s own 120x74 yard practice facility prior to the 2011 season. The training site features the same custom, natural grass surface as the game field at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium and is only a short walk from the game field. The surface was re-sodded in the summer of 2011, while an additional 34x20 yard area was added to work specifically on technical areas. Lights surround the field to give it a game-field atmosphere during night practices.

The WVU men’s soccer team recognizes that it’s important to win on the field, but the squad also realizes that it’s equally important to win over the community by giving back in every possible aspect. Not only have the Mountaineers helped Morgantown become a better place through various humanitarian efforts, but the team makes the extra stride to travel outside of the immediate area to lend a hand. Arguably one of coach Marlon LeBlanc’s biggest contributions to West Virginia is the OneWVU diversity program. The message of the program is simply that regardless of beliefs, background or skin color, we are all oneWVU,’ with the object of bringing everyone together to create a more tight-knit community. The Mountaineers understand the importance of academics and are actively involved in the Read Aloud’ program. When the team is not influencing the young, bright minds in the classroom, it can be found visiting children at the MountainView Rehabilitation Hospital in Morgantown, specifically those in the Children’s Rehabilitation Physical Therapy Unit. While the team continues to practice, compete and score on the field, the Mountaineers have already found the back of the net – with the community.

2012 MEN’S SOCCER

STUDENT-ATHLETE SERVICES West Virginia University offers a variety of services and programs to help student-athletes maximize their academic potential. Department staff members work with coaches, on campus student service providers and faculty to help student-athletes meet the unique demands of the classroom, the sporting arena and the personal-social challenges they face as developing adults. While many of the headlines center on the Mountaineers’ accomplishments on the playing field, West Virginia athletes have also made some noteworthy strides in the classroom. Some of those strides include a string of nine consecutive years where the department has had at least one first team Academic All-American. To help its student athletes achieve academic success, one of the nation’s finest facilities resides in the WVU Coliseum – The Athletic Academic Performance Center. The 8,000-square foot facility provides individual and group study areas, a plethora of computer stations and the latest in fingerprint technology used when signing in.

STUDENT-ATHLETE SERVICES

West Virginia University’s graduation rate for student-athletes has been impressive, to say the least, over the past eight years. The ratio of student-athletes graduating to the general student body has increased almost every year. WVU’s combined varsity athletic teams have an Academic Progress Rate (APR) score of 975 according to data released today by the NCAA. The APR is based upon eligibility and retention of student-athletes over a four-year period, used as an assessment of real-time academic success. WVU’s average APR score of 975 is up one point from last year’s average is higher than the NCAA’s overall four-year APR average score of 973. For the 2010-11 academic year, West Virginia had three teams with perfect 1,000 scores: gymnastics, rowing and men’s soccer. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) provides a forum for the “voice of the student-athlete” on WVU’s campus. SAAC membership provides feedback to administration about how to better WVU athletic programs. They offer input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes’ lives on NCAA member institution campuses.

Marlon LeBlanc Head Coach Seventh Season (63-39-19)

Entering his seventh season, coach Marlon LeBlanc has made his presence felt both on and off the pitch at West Virginia University, and on the national circuit. LeBlanc has guided WVU to four NCAA tournaments, advancing to at least the second round in all four appearances, including the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2007, while also winning the Big East regularseason championship in 2006. WVU has also been ranked in the Top 25 in every season over the past six years. The proof of LeBlanc’s success is in the numbers. The Mountaineers have compiled a 63-39-19 (.599) record the past six seasons, including an impressive 36-17-8 (.656) conference mark. WVU ranked No. 3 in conference wins (36) and conference winning percentage (.656) during that six-year span. WVU is 39-14-8 at home during that span and in the last six seasons against the nation’s Top 25, West Virginia boasts 19 victories, including eight Top 10 wins.

Last Season Looking to continue the success from the previous season, LeBlanc was able to lead WVU to an 11-8-1 record in 2011, the second consecutive 11-win season. WVU earned the No. 2 seed in the Big East tournament and advanced

to the second round of the NCAA tournament, defeating No. 25 Xavier before falling to No. 5 Maryland. LeBlanc posted victories against five Top 25 opponents, including a 2-0 victory over thenNo. 1 and undefeated Connecticut at home on Oct. 18. Other Top 25 wins came against No. 11 Virginia, No. 13 Georgetown, No. 14 Notre Dame and No. 25 Xavier. WVU spent the entire season ranked in the Top 25 and as high as No. 8. Big home crowds also were a mainstay, as WVU was ranked 23rd nationally in average attendance for its fourth-consecutive Top 25 finish. WVU raised its regular season fans per game average to 1,217 in 2011. The awards continued to flow in for LeBlanc’s team as Eric Schoenle was named an NSCAA third team All-American, while Andy Bevin, Raymon Gaddis, Shadow Sebele and Schoenle were All-Big East members. Bevin took home Big East Rookie of the Year honors and joined Gaddis and Schoenle on the NSCAA All-Northeast Region team. The Mountaineers balanced scoring attack was led by Sebele, who scored six goals and assisted on seven for 19 points. Bevin led the team with seven goals, while Schoenle finished with three. Nine different WVU players tallied goals, with 11 recording at least one point. With wins in the first three home games of 2011, coupled with 2010’s 10-game home winning streak, the Mountaineers set the school record for most consecutive wins at home with 13.

36 | West Virginia University

2006-10 LeBlanc had one of the best seasons in the history of the program in 2010, leading the team to the second round of the NCAA tournament before falling to eventual national champion, Akron. The Mountaineers finished the season with an 11-8-2 record, including a 10-1 mark at home. After only scoring 13 goals in 2009, the WVU offense came alive, scoring 34 goals in 2010, led by Franck Tayou with nine and Shadow Sebele, Eric Schoenle and Peabo Doue with five each. Zach Johnson, Raymon Gaddis and Shadow Sebele each earned all-Big East second-team honors, while Eric Schoenle earned third-team honors. Gaddis also was named a TopDrawerSoccer third team All-American and a first-team selection to the NSCAA/Performance Subaru All-Northeast Region team, while Schoenle was selected to attend a U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team camp in December. Johnson concluded his stellar career between the posts, owning a part in all of WVU’s goalkeeper records. Johnson finished his career first in goalkeeper minutes (7,548), first in goals-against average (0.71), second in shutouts (36) and fourth in saves (282). After winning a Big East regular-season championship in 2006 and advancing twice to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament, LeBlanc spent most of 2008 and 2009 coaching around injuries and building up the program into a powerhouse. The 2009 squad saw as many as six freshmen starters due to injuries, but was able to

compile a respectable 7-5-6 overall mark, with a 6-3-2 league record. The back line gave all opponents fits, as the Mountaineer defense held squads to less than 10 shots per game and registered a 0.61 GAA – the eighth-best mark nationally. Despite losing seven starters to graduation and adding 16 newcomers, WVU finished with an overall mark of 5-9-5 in 2008. LeBlanc guided the squad to victories at No. 4-ranked Connecticut (1-0) and at home over No. 22 Ohio State (1-0). WVU also became known as one of the stingiest defensive units in the nation, allowing only 13 goals on the season – a mark tied for No. 1 in the Big East. The Mountaineers also held opponents scoreless for 554:41, a span of nearly six games. The squad boasted a 0.64 goals-against average, which was good enough for fifth nationally. In 2007, WVU finished 14-6-2 and reached the Sweet 16 for the second time in school history. WVU pulled off three wins against the nation’s top 10: at No. 6 Maryland (1-0), at No. 5 Duke (1-0) and at home against No. 1 Connecticut (1-0). The Mountaineers also set numerous school records in 2007: 14 shutouts, allowed just 11 goals, posted six consecutive shutouts and midfielder Dan Stratford set the career assist mark at 27. LeBlanc took over at West Virginia on the opening day of preseason camp in 2006 and helped the program reach new heights immediately. The Mountaineers posted a 15-3-3 record in 2006, going 9-0-1 in Big East play, marking the first time a team in the conference had gone unbeaten playing at least a 10-game schedule. The 15 wins in 2006 were also the most in school history. For his efforts, LeBlanc was named the 2006 Soccer America National Coach of the Year, FieldTurf-Tarket National Coach of the Year, NSCAA/adidas Northeast Regional Coach of the Year and the coaching staff was named the Big East Coaching Staff of the Year. Under his tutelage, WVU spent eight weeks ranked in the top 10 in 2006 and five in the top five, ranking as high as No. 3.

Academic All-District Second Team in 2010. The squad had a perfect APR score for the 2009-10 and 2010-11 cycles and had the fourth highest team GPA among Division I schools in 2009. Jason Bristol garnered 2008 NSCAA/adidas Scholar All-East Region honorable mention accolades for earning at least a 3.3 cumulative grade-point average. In 2007-08, Pat Carroll garnered ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America third team honors. Collectively, the team has achieved above a 3.0 GPA each semester since the fall of 2007.

Player Development LeBlanc’s expertise has helped develop some of the NCAA’s finest athletes with five student-athletes earning All-America honors: Jarrod Smith (2006), Nick Noble (2006), Andy Wright (2007), Raymon Gaddis (2010) and Eric Schoenle (2011). Nine players have been named All-Big East (Nick Noble, Jarrod Smith, Andy Wright, Dan Stratford, Andrew Halsell, Gift Maworere, Raymon Gaddis, Zach Johnson, Eric Schoenle, Shadow Sebele and Andy Bevin), with four earning major conference awards. Five players are currently playing professionally: Paul Cunningham (Balestier Khalsa), Jyler Noviello (Wilmington Hammerheads), Nick Noble (Harris-

United), Nick Noble (Chicago Fire, LA Galaxy), Jarrod Smith (Toronto FC, Seattle Sounders FC) and Dan Stratford (D.C. United) have all seen time on MLS rosters. Most recently, Raymon Gaddis became WVU’s first ever MLS SuperDraft selection when he was picked 35th overall by Philadelphia in the 2012 draft. Only a year prior, Zach Johnson was selected by the LA Galaxy in the 2011 MLS Supplemental Draft. Four players have been invited to the MLS combine during LeBlanc’s tenure.

The Penn State Years LeBlanc came to WVU from Penn State, where he played in 1994 before serving as an assistant from 2001-06 and helping the Nittany Lions earn NCAA tournament bids in four of five seasons, including Sweet 16 appearances in 2001 and 2005 and an Elite Eight appearance in 2002. His duties included serving as the recruiting coordinator, assistant director and coordinator for Penn State soccer camps, video analysis and coordination of game-day operations and community outreach.

LeBlanc helped PSU to Big Ten championships in 2002 and 2005. Penn State ended the 2002 season ranked No. 8 and finished the 2005 season ranked No. 10 by the NSCAA. In all, LeBlanc helped lead Penn State to a 62-34-12 record. That included seven games in 2002 in which he filled in for coach Barry Gorman, posting a 4-3 overall record, 2-2 in the Big Ten, in the midst of a league championship run. LeBlanc was considered to be among the nation’s top collegiate assistants and best recruiters, earning a nomination for the 2002 AFLAC Assistant Coach of the Year. In 2005, with all players part of LeBlanc’s recruiting classes, Penn State won the Big Ten regular-season championship with a 6-0 league record. The Nittany Lions also went on to win the Big Ten tournament title that year. In 2004, LeBlanc recruited Rich Costanzo, the 2004 Big Ten Freshman of the Year. That season, two of LeBlanc’s recruits were named to the Soccer America Freshman All-America Team. As recruiting coordinator at Penn State, LeBlanc’s classes were ranked No. 9 and No. 8 in the nation in 2001 and 2002, respectively, by CollegeSoccerNews. The 2002 class was ranked No. 6 nationally by Soccer America.

oneWVU When Marlon LeBlanc arrived at WVU in August 2006 as WVU’s men’s soccer coach — and the University’s first African-American head coach — the New Jersey native and former Penn State assistant coach admits to bringing some biases with him. During a trip to WVU’s Human Resources department to fill out his employee paperwork, he noticed that a man in the waiting area was staring at him. That stare brought his concerns and preconceived notions bubbling to the surface. “I was thinking, ‘Here we go’,” LeBlanc admitted. Then, the staring man smiled, welcomed him to WVU and wished him luck in his new role. “It was a defining moment,” LeBlanc said. “Any hesitation I felt about coming to Morgantown evaporated. I realized that this is a community that embraces people, and since then I’ve felt very welcome.” LeBlanc, with his newfound love for West Virginia and WVU, went on to lead the Mountaineers to their first undefeated season in the Big East, and to earn the Soccer America National Coach of the Year award. But despite his team’s success and WVU’s welcoming environment, he learned that his players weren’t immune from the biases of others. One of his soccer players, a black studentathlete, told him that two men in a passing car had called him a derogatory name — a racial slur. The incident troubled LeBlanc, but it also suggested a plan. LeBlanc decided that the WVU community’s love for its sports teams could be a powerful force for breaking down prejudices.

“The thought process was those guys were probably fans of WVU football or basketball or baseball or soccer,” said LeBlanc. “They’re probably the same people who are out in the stands cheering every time there’s a touchdown, or a goal scored. So I wanted to use athletics as our vehicle to make a difference.” He looked for a common denominator, a way to take WVU’s strong sense of community and weave it into the fabric of inclusion and tolerance. LeBlanc realized that “The common thread is that we are one WVU,” said LeBlanc. “Gold and blue, those are the colors that define us.”

Stand Up Speak Up, a European anti-racism campaign sponsored by Nike and featuring several prominent soccer players, helped to inspire LeBlanc. The multinational campaign inspired people around the world to unite around the power and promise of athletics. LeBlanc wanted to transfer that message to WVU. He met with Jennifer McIntosh, WVU executive officer for social justice, and Mike Parsons, deputy director of athletics, to discuss the idea, and then worked with Mountaineer Sports Network and University Advancement and Marketing to produce a 30-second public service announcement to air on the scoreboard during Mountaineer sporting events. Called oneWVU, the video featured WVU students from various backgrounds proclaiming their Mountaineer unity. The University has also raised awareness of the campaign in several ways, including airing the video on state television stations, placing ads in newspapers and magazines, producing a Web site feature and sending post cards across the country. Future plans for oneWVU include integrating it into the curriculum for University 101 orientation courses and incorporating it into New Student Orientation, student mentoring programs, residence hall programming and faculty and staff training. Collaborations are being planned with the School of Physical Education, Center for Black Culture, WVU Extension Service and the Office of Student Affairs.

Chad Brown Assistant Coach Third Season

Chad Brown begins his third season as an assistant coach with the Mountaineers after joining WVU in 2010. Brown assists in all facets of the program, including training, recruiting, budgeting, scouting and schedule. Brown came to WVU after a four-year run at UNLV, where he served as an assistant coach, as well as the interim head coach in the spring of 2010. His knowledge has paid immediate dividends in his two seasons as WVU has qualified for the NCAA tournament in 2010 and 2011, and has scored 60 goals, the most in a two-year period since 2006-07. The 2011 season resulted in WVU finishing 11-8-1, defeating five Top 25 teams and advancing to the second round of the NCAA tournament. Brown helped to develop goalkeeper Pat Eavenson, who finished the season with three shutouts in nine starts, while defender Raymon Gaddis became WVU’s first MLS SuperDraft selection after being drafted 35th overall to the Philadelphia Union. In Brown’s first season as a Mountaineer, the team went 11-8-2 and qualified for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2007. Under Brown’s guidance, the Mountaineers became one of the most balanced teams in the conference, recording 34 goals, and allowing just 24. Brown helped guide goalkeeper Zach Johnson, who finished the season with five shutouts and ended his career as the all-time minutes played leader and all-time goals-against leader. Johnson is second in career shutouts and fourth in career saves. Johnson was drafted in the MLS Supplemental draft (52nd overall) to the L.A. Galaxy.

Academically, WVU has been awarded the NSCAA Team Academic Award each of Johnson’s two seasons and Ruben Garrido (2011) and Zach Johnson (2010) were each named the Big East Male Institutional Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The squad has also had a perfect APR score during each cycle. As an assistant at UNLV, Brown served as the recruiting coordinator, academic monitor, travel coordinator and identification and residential camp co-director. Additionally, he organized daily training sessions and was responsible for scouting reports and team tactics. Brown helped turn the Rebel program around, developing it into one of the best on the West Coast. After finishing 1-15-2 in 2006, the team raised its win total each season and completed 2009 with an 8-7-4 record, the first winning season since 2002. In total, Brown coached two NSCAA All-Far West selections, 13 All-MPSF selections and 2007 freshman All-American Daniel Cruz. Cruz, who was regarded as one of the nation’s top recruits, was named the MPSF Newcomer of the Year in 2007 and to the All-MPSF first team after scoring five goals in 2008. Cruz was drafted in the third round (41st) overall of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by the Houston Dynamo and currently plays for D.C. United. Brown also had a key role in developing professional players Nick DeLeon, Lamar Neagle and Mason Trafford at UNLV. DeLeon was a two-time All-MPSF honoree after leading UNLV freshman in appearances with 18 in 2008. Regarded as one of the top MLS prospects, DeLeon was picked seventh overall by D.C. United in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. A NSCAA All-Far West selection and three-time All-MPSF honoree, Neagle played every game but one in his four year career and is currently played for MLS’ Montreal Impact. A team captain at UNLV, Trafford played for the Vancouver Whitecaps

of the MLS from 2008-09 and is currently a member of IFK Mariehamn in Finland. After joining the staff at UNLV, Brown immediately immersed himself in the Nevada Olympic Development Program (ODP), serving as an assistant coach to the Region IV 1994 age group team and the head coach of the Region IV 1998 age group team. Brown was not only responsible for selecting the best talent from the western United States, but also for training and developing the squads. Prior to UNLV, Brown served seven years as a head coach for the Crossfire Premier Soccer Club. Based in Redmond, Wash., Brown ran two of the clubs starting in 1999. While coaching club soccer, Brown also owned, coordinated and ran operation for First Touch Training LLC, which were soccer training clinics in the Seattle area. As a professional player, Brown played for the Seattle Sounders in the A-League, guiding the team to the league finals in 2004-05 and to the league championship in 2005-06. A 1999 graduate of Fresno State with a bachelor’s degree in sociology, Brown was a two-year center midfielder (1997-98). Brown was named to the All-Western Athletic Conference twice, and led the Bulldogs in scoring both years. A year prior, he led Spokane Community College to the NWAAC championship and was named the tournament’s MVP. Brown began his collegiate career at Bellevue Community College, where he was named an NWAAC All-State selection after leading the program to the 1994 conference championship. Brown also holds a USSF “A” license.

Dan Stratford Volunteer Assistant First Season

Dan Stratford joined WVU in August 2011 as a volunteer assistant with the men’s soccer team. He assists in daily training sessions and game preparation with the team. Stratford was a four-year letterwinner for the Mountaineers from 2004-07 and owns the top spot for games played (85) and most assists (27) in a WVU career, while also finishing his career ranked eighth all-time in career points with 67. Stratford was honored in 2007 as an NSCAA All-Northeast Region Third Team member and was All-Big East Scond Team. Following his career at WVU, Stratford was drafted by D.C. United with the 24th overall pick in the 2008 MLS Supplemental Draft. Stratford played in five games with D.C. United, including one start against Real Salt Lake.

A London, England native, Stratford went on to play 14 matches, scoring one goal for Inverness of the Scottish Premier League in 2009, while playing seven matches for Hereford United of League Two in England in 2010. A 2009 graduate of WVU with a bachelor’s degree in physical education teacher education, Stratford is currently working towards a master’s degree in physical education teacher education.

2012 Men’s Soccer

2012 Season Preview WVU returns 7 starters from 2011 NCAA squad Playing the Best Never afraid to face a different schedule, men’s soccer coach Marlon LeBlanc will face four national champions, the last two national champions and three of the last five national champions in 2012. Six opponents were in the field of 48 for the 2011 NCAA tournament, four opponents are defending conference champions and three opponents were in the Top 25 of the final 2011 NCAA RPI. The slate also features games against nine different conferences. First Time Foe After switching conferences in the offseason, the Mountaineers will take on a plethora of new opponents in 2012. New non-conference opponents include Hartford, North Carolina, Oakland, Stetson and Stony Brook. In the MAC, WVU will face Northern Illinois and Western Michigan for the first time.

Super Seven The 2012 WVU men’s soccer roster features seven seniors, five of which are four-year starters in the Old Gold and Blue. Peabo Doue, Pat Eavenson, Uwem Etuk, Francis Molasoko, Travis Pittman, Eric Schoenle and Shadow Sebele will all be key components to the team at varying positions. Doue, Etuk, Pittman, Schoenle and Sebele combined for 14 of WVU’s 26 goals in 2011, as well as 50-of- 81 points. Eavenson goes into the season as the starter in goal after starting nine games in 2011 with three shutouts and a 1.43 goals-against average, while Molasoko is a key component at left back after playing nine games in 2011. Newcomers Coach Marlon LeBlanc will bring in a total of 14 newcomers for the 2012 season. The group will be led by defender Nick Raskasky, who enrolled in January and participated during the spring season. Also participating in spring soccer were walk-ons Gerry Sanchez and Chris Drisko, both of who are included in the list of newcomers. The group by position features three forwards, four midfielders, five defenders and two goalkeepers.

70 | West Virginia University

Offensive Outlook The 2011 Mountaineers recorded 26 goals and 29 assists for 81 points. Fortunately for WVU, 90 percent of its point total returns for the 2012 season. Forward Andy Bevin scored seven goals with two assists as a freshman last season, earning Big East Rookie of the Year honors, while his partner Peabo Doue scored two goals with four assists. Midfielder Shadow Sebele led the team with 19 points (6 goals, 7 assists) and was 3-for-3 on penalty kicks en route to earning third team all-conference recognition. Eight members of the current team recorded at least two points last season, while seven scored at least one goal. Defensive Outlook West Virginia returns two starters on the back line this fall in senior All-American Eric Schoenle and sophomore Paul Ehrenworth. Schoenle started all 20 games last season, scoring three goals with three assists, while anchoring the defense at the right center back position. Ehrenworth eased into a starting role at left back and played in all 20 games for the Mountaineers.

Goalkeeper Outlook After using two goalkeepers during 2011, the Mountaineers will rely on senior Pat Eavenson between the pipes in 2012. Eavenson started nine games last season, allowing 13 goals with a 5-4-0 record and three shutouts. Spanning the Globe WVU features student-athletes from England, France, Jamaica, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Zimbabwe and 11 different U.S. states on its 2012 roster. Six players come from Virginia, while Maryland and New Zealand claim three players each. Two players come from North Carolina and Pennsylvania, while California, England, Florida, France, Jamaica, New Jersey, Ohio, Puerto Rico, Texas, Washington, West Virginia and Zimbabwe each send one player. Two or More = Victory Since Marlon LeBlanc’s arrival in 2006, the team is 31-1-5 when they have scored at least two goals in a game. The only loss came at the hands of Akron in the second round of the 2010 NCAA tournament. WVU was trailing 3-0 in the match before scoring two goals in the final 10 minutes. All-Conference Returnees Three members of the 2012 team have previously earned all-conference honors. The trio includes Andy Bevin (2011 - third; rookie team), Eric Schoenle (2011 - second team, 2010 third team) and Shadow Sebele (2011 - third team, 2010 - second team, 2009 - rookie team).

WVU House of Horrors Now in LeBlanc’s seventh season at WVU, the Mountaineers own a 3617-8 overall record at Dick Dlesk. The Mountaineers have also continued to have massive success against ranked opponents at home. WVU defeated No. 1 UConn, No. 13 Georgetown and No. 25 Xavier in 2011. In 2010, WVU defeated No. 17 UNC Wilmington in double overtime and earned a win against No. 22 Notre Dame. Packing the House Coach Marlon LeBlanc is hoping that the recent year’s attendance trends continue for the 2012 season. The average attendance per game has continued to rise as the number went from 996 in 2008 to 1,021 in 2009 to 1,047 in 2010 and then 1,087 in 2011. The rising attendance trends started in 2006 when the gates saw 8,334 people walk through, compared to 4,637 in 2005. WVU’s 2011 total home attendance was ranked nationally and there were six different matches where at least 1,000 fans packed the stands.

Game Winners WVU currently has six players who have recorded a total of 18 game-winning goals in their careers. Seniors Eric Schoenle and Shadow Sebele lead the team with five game winners apiece, while senior Peabo Doue has notched four. Sophomore Andy Bevin (2), senior Uwem Etuk (2) and senior Travis Pittman (1) account for the remaining game winners. Holding the Lead Making a difference down the stretch is important in every men’s soccer match, and WVU continues to be one of the top nationally by holding on to early leads. Since Marlon LeBlanc took the coaching reins in 2006, WVU is 30-3-2 all-time when leading at halftime. The Mountaineers are dangerous when the score is tied as well, holding a 30-20-15 advantage. Introducing the MAC This season the Mountaineer men’s soccer team will switch conferences for only the fourth time in school history when they begin competition in the Mid-American Conference. The addition of the Mountaineers will increase the MAC men’s soccer membership to eight members – five from MAC full-time membership and three affiliate members. West Virginia’s affiliation with the MidAmerican Conference provides our institution a platform to partner with quality soccer programs represented by a passionate fan base.

2012 Men’s Soccer

2011 Season Review WVU advances to second round of NCAAS The 2011 men’s soccer season was one of many positives for coach Marlon LeBlanc as the Mountaineers continued to build the legacy of the program and qualified for the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in LeBlanc’s six seasons as coach. The Mountaineers finished the season with an 11-8-1 record, including a 6-3 mark in the Big East and a 6-3 record at home. WVU also earned the No. 2 seed in the Big East Championships, the eighth-straight season WVU qualified for postseason play. The team ranked No. 23 in average attendance for its fourth-consecutive Top 25 finish. WVU raised its average fans per game to 1,087, up 40 from 2010, while the total home attendance was 9,784. The Mountaineers played in front of 1,000-plus fans at home in six of the nine home games in 2011, including 1,850 fans against Binghamton and 1,719 against Connecticut. WVU had a regular season average attendance of 1,217 fans per game. WVU also played in front of big crowds on the road, playing in 10 road games in front of an average of 1,530 fans per game. Top road attendances included Virginia (3,012), Maryland (4,629), UC Santa Barbara (3,136), Cal Poly (1,041), Notre Dame (1,635) and Maryland (2,437). In total, the Mountaineers played in front of a total 25,086 fans in 2011 for an average of 1,320 per game. WVU opened the regular season on the road with a match against No. 11 Virginia on Aug. 26, in the ACC/Big East Challenge at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Germantown, Md. Eric Schoenle did not disappoint the 3,012 fans and had a diving header with 23 seconds remaining in the first half to give WVU a 1-0 lead. The Mountaineers allowed just three total shots to preserve the shutout victory. WVU traveled back to Maryland on Aug. 29, to face No. 4 Maryland in College Park, Md. Andy Bevin gave WVU the early lead in seventh minute of action, before the Terrapins struck for three goals in the second half to win the match 3-1. WVU was called for 19 fouls in the match and was awarded two red cards and six yellow cards.

Raymon Gaddis The team opened the home season on Sept. 2 in the annual WVU Nike Classic with a 2-1 victory against Binghamton. The crowd of 1,850 was the fourth highest to ever witness a men’s soccer match at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. After going down 1-0 in the ninth minute, Bevin struck with two goals in the final 15 minutes of the first half leading to a victory. A goal by Travis Pittman in the 13th minute on Sept. 4, against No. 25 Old Dominion was pacing the Mountaineers before the match was cancelled due to inclement weather in the 41st minute. WVU then traveled to California for the first time in school history with a match against No. 6 UC Santa Barbara on Sept. 10, and a game at Cal Poly on Sept. 12. The Mountaineers fell to the Gauchos in front of 3,136 fans with Matt Drake recording two shots, before coming out against Cal Poly in front of 1,041 fans and playing to a 0-0 draw. Justin Holmes earned his first nod in the net, not failing to disappoint with nine key saves en route to his first shutout as a Mountaineer. The Mountaineers returned home to take on Richmond (9/16) and Duquesne (9/18), outscoring the teams a combined 7-2. WVU dominated the pace of play and possession

78 | West Virginia University

in a 4-1 victory of Richmond. Shadow Sebele scored the eventual game-winning goal and took a game-high six shots, while Bevin continued his torrid scoring pace with two goals on five shots. The pressure continued in a 3-1 victory of Duquesne. Peabo Doue and Sebele each scored goals for the second time in as many games and Uzi Tayou added a second half insurance goal for the second of his career. Sebele also had two assists for a four point afternoon. Both games saw 1,000-plus come through the turnstiles to make it sevenstraight games of at least 1,000 seeing the Mountaineers. One week later WVU opened the Big East season with a match against No. 13 USF on Sept. 25. Despite leading in most statistical categories, WVU dropped a 2-1 decision to snap a 13 game home winning streak in front of 1,375 fans. Sebele scored the game’s opening goal in the eighth minute of play before the Bulls tied it in the 13th minute and took the lead in the 74th minute. A disappointing 2-0 loss on the road to James Madison ended September on Sept. 28, with WVU outshooting the Dukes 8-2. The Mountaineers started October with a three-game winning streak with a pair of 1-0 wins over Cincinnati (Oct. 1) and No. 13

The postseason awards rolled in for the Mountaineers following the season with four WVU student-athletes earning honors. Bevin raked in awards starting with the Big East Rookie of the Year, as well as being an All-Big East third team and All-Big East rookie team member. Bevin was named the ECAC Rookie of the Year, and was also named first team all-freshman by both CollegeSoccerNews.com and Soccer America. Bevin was also one of three to be named to the NSCAA All-Northeast Region, joining Schoenle and Gaddis.

Shadow Sebele Georgetown (Oct. 8), and a 2-0 win at Pitt (Oct. 12). Bevin scored in the 26th minute against the Bearcats to give WVU its first Big East win. Uwem Etuk netted his first goal of the season with nine minutes remaining to beat the Hoyas, and Sebele converted two successful penalty kicks to give WVU a win against Pitt. WVU then hit the road and took a tough loss to Marquette on Oct. 15, who scored the game-winning goal in the 79th minute to go up 2-1. After the Golden Eagles took the 1-0 lead in the 28th minute, WVU was able to regroup and Etuk knocked in the game-tying goal in the 47th minute. The biggest win of the season came in front of a raucous crowd at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium with the Mountaineers shutting out No.1 Connecticut 2-0 on Oct. 18. WVU dominated the offensive and defensive zone in the final 60 minutes of the match and held Connecticut to just five shots on-goal. The attendance of 1,719 marked the sixth highest to witness a game at the stadium. Sebele scored on a penalty kick for his sixth goal of the season to break the game open, while Schoenle added an insurance goal in the 78th minute off a corner kick. WVU fell 2-1 on Oct. 21, in its regular season home finale against Providence. Despite the loss, Nick Claudio scored the first goal of his career in the 46th minute after receiving a cross from Etuk, flicking the ball up to himself and hitting a half-bicycle past the Friar keeper from 30 yards out. Injuries began to build up, but the Mountaineers persevered with playoff implications on the line and earned a pair of 2-0 shutout victories over Seton Hall (Oct. 26) and No. 12 Notre Dame (Oct. 29). Pittman scored the

game-winning goal by successfully converting a penalty kick in the 42nd minute to give the Mountaineers a 1-0 lead over the Pirates. Bevin added the insurance goal in the 61st minute racing past the Pirate defenders and buried it past the Seton Hall keeper. Claudio gave the Mountaineers the leads against the Irish in the 24th minute after a scrum in front of the net, while pressure from Bevin in 71st minute forced Notre Dame into committing an own goal. Thanks in part to the late season success, the team earned a No. 2 seed in the Blue Division of the conference championships and had a first round bye. However, having the bye proved to be no advantage as WVU had to face No. 13 St. John’s, with the Red Storm taking the quarterfinal match 2-0. A little over a week late, WVU learned its NCAA fate, as a little bit of déjà vu occurred when WVU was picked to play Xavier in the first round of the tournament for the secondconsecutive season.

Schoenle earned his own awards as well, being named a third team NSCAA All-American and earning second team All-Big East. Gaddis was also named to the All-Big East second team, while Sebele was named a third team member. Academically, the team earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award for the fourth-straight season after achieving a team GPA of over 3.0. WVU was one of only eight Big East teams recognized, with a 3.05 GPA. Ruben Garrido earned an individual academic award, as he was the winner of the 2011-12 Big East Institutional Male-Scholar Athlete Award. With one of the nation’s top recruiting classes, the team returning 71 of its 81 points and a returning starting goalkeeper in Pat Eavenson, the Mountaineers will look to continue the success of the previous seasons that has brought the program to national prominence.

A golden goal from Schoenle in the 99th minute gave the West Virginia men’s soccer team a 2-1 victory over No. 25 Xavier on Nov. 17 at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium to advance the Mountaineers to face Maryland in the second round. West Virginia had a 1-0 lead for the majority of the match before conceding a goal to Xavier in the 85th minute to knot the game at 1-1, forcing sudden death overtime. In what turned out to be the final match of the season, the Mountaineers fell to No. 5 Maryland by a score of 4-0. Despite the loss, the 11 wins mark the second-consecutive season with at least 11 wins, as well as the team playing in 10 matches against Top 25 opponents. Against those teams, WVU had an impressive 5-5 record.

All-Americans Ron McEachen 1967 First Team Hartford, Conn.

Ron McEachen, WVU’s first All-American, played right halfback for the Mountaineers in his senior season in 1967. As co-captain, McEachen helped the Mountaineers to an 11-1 record and a Southern Conference championship. Also elected first team All-South in 1967, McEachen helped the team to a 39-10-1 record in his four years at WVU. He currently is the head coach at Skidmore College.

Walt Nistorenko 1967 First Team 1968 Third Team Newark, N.J.

One of the most prolific scorers in Mountaineer history, Walt Nistorenko accomplished many things in just two seasons at West Virginia. Exploding onto the scene in 1967, Nistorenko became a Third Team All-American for his efforts in guiding the Mountaineers to an 11-1 year and a Southern Conference championship. That year, he tallied 27 goals, second all-time in WVU history.

Jon Capon One year later, he led WVU to an 8-1-1 record, on 14 goals and six assists en route to the school’s first berth into the NCAA tournament. Despite losing to defending national co-champion Saint Louis, Nistorenko tallied two goals on a Billiken team that had only given up three the entire season. He continues to hold the season record for shots with 68. Prior to his impressive career in Morgantown, Nistorenko was a two-time junior college All-American at Keystone Junior College. Nistorenko’s son, Walt Jr., played for the Mountaineers from 1993-96.

Pat Sullivan

1968 First Team Rocky Hill, Conn. In the same season in which teammate Walt Nistorenko led the Mountaineers in scoring, junior Pat Sullivan anchored a Mountaineer defense that gave up just 10 goals and shutout four opponents. Playing fullback, Sullivan also led a defense that allowed just 136 shots. Sullivan joined the squad in 1968 after transferring from Mitchell Junior College.

Jon Capon

1981 First Team Rockville, Md. In his senior season, Jon Capon was a dominating force between the posts. A two-time All-South selection, Capon allowed just 17 goals in 16 games, with six shutouts, in an 11-5 season for the Mountaineers. The three-time captain also posted a 1.13 goals-against average with 1,350 minutes in the net that season. For his career, Capon saved 342 shots, the most in WVU history. He also holds a 1.22 career goals-against average mark and 28 shutouts, both records that stood at WVU for over 25 years.

recognition from the National Soccer Coaches Association (NSCAA). Smith also earned national honors from the ECAC, CollegeSoccerNews and SoccerTimes. The All-Big East First Team selection in 2006 and M.A.C. Hermann Award finalist scored 14 goals in 15 matches to go along with four assists. The senior forward set the Big East single-season conference goals record in 2006 with 12 and the single-season conference-points record with 28. Smith netted 32 goals in four seasons for WVU, tied for fifth all-time in school history. He played in 74 matches in his career. Smith became the third Mountaineer ever drafted into the MLS when Toronto FC chose him with the first overall pick in the 2007 supplemental draft.

Oliver Luck Director of Athletics Successful at each of his previous career stops, Oliver Luck continues that streak at West Virginia University. A former Mountaineer quarterback, Luck, appointed the University’s 11th Director of Athletics by President James P. Clements on June 9, 2010, has made significant strides in his first two years to enhance WVU’s role as a major player in the collegiate world. In his first year, Luck hired four head coaches, while maintaining WVU’s superior level of success. In addition to new hires, Luck oversaw the progress of major capital projects, such as the $25 million WVU basketball practice facility for men’s and women’s basketball and the women’s soccer training complex. He also fostered an atmosphere for achievement and triumph in the classroom and on the field. In year two, Luck led WVU into the Big 12 Conference, oversaw the best fundraising year in school history, implemented several safety and crowd enhancements at Mountaineer sporting events, increased overall department revenue, continued a master plan for facility upgrades and watched his football program gain its third BCS bowl victory with a recordsetting 70-33 win in the Orange Bowl. Luck’s athletic and professional career has been the epitome of success, first as a recordsetting quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1978-81, then as a professional quarterback for the National Football League’s Houston Oilers, and later as a professional sports executive. Luck’s journey to the big chair at WVU began in his native Cleveland, where in 1977 he was named the Cleveland Touchdown Club Player of the Year at St. Ignatius High. Luck chose WVU over Ivy League schools Harvard and Yale, embarking upon a career that saw him establish school records for touchdown passes and completions during his playing days, while also leading the Mountaineers to a 26-6 upset victory over Florida in the 1981 Peach Bowl. His best season came as a senior in 1981 when he completed 216 of 394 passes for 2,448 yards and 16 touchdowns. He passed for a career-high 360 yards in a 27-24 loss to Syracuse at the Carrier Dome in the final regular-season game of his career. Luck ended his college career with 5,765 yards and 43 touchdown passes, both figures still ranking among the best in school history. Luck was a two-time team MVP in 1980 and

Oliver Luck was a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American quarterback at WVU. 1981, and also received the Louis D. Meisel Award for the WVU football student-athlete with the highest grade point average. The two-time ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American was the recipient of Today’s Top Five, presented for scholastics by the NCAA and was selected by the National Football Foundation as one of its 10 scholar-athletes to make a keynote speech at its annual banquet in 1982. Selected in the second round of the NFL draft by the Houston Oilers (44th overall pick), Luck spent four years with the Oilers from 1982-86. His most extended action came in 1983 when he started six games and finished the season completing 124-of-217 passes for 1,375 yards and eight touchdowns. After retiring from football, Luck became vice president of business development for the NFL and later was appointed general manager of the Frankfurt Galaxy of the newly created World League of American Football. He spent the ’95 season as general manager of the Rhein Fire before being named President and CEO of NFL Europe in 1996. Luck totaled more than 10 years with the NFL, before becoming chief executive officer of the Harris CountyHouston Sports Authority in 2001. In that role, Luck oversaw the development and management of a $1 billion professional sports and entertainment complex for the city of Houston that included Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans, the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets, Comets and Aeros and the Livestock Show and Rodeo. In 2005, Luck was appointed as the first president of Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamos, helping that organization to a pair

of MLS Cup titles in his first two years at the helm. Luck secured the funding for an $80 million soccer complex to house the Dynamos when the call came to return to his alma mater. BBVA Compass Stadium was built and opened in 2012 adding to Luck’s legacy with the professional soccer team, and the overall Houston sports facility complexes. He returned in May, 2012 for the opening ceremony of the soccer stadium that he fought so hard for. Prior to his current position at WVU, Luck was appointed by then Gov. Joe Manchin in 2008 to a four-year term on the West Virginia University Board of Governors, a spot he relinquished to become director of athletics. The Rhodes Scholar finalist graduated Phi Betta Kappa from WVU in 1982. He also earned a law degree from Texas, graduating cum laude in 1987. In 1997, Luck was inducted into the West Virginia University Sports Hall of Fame, and in 2008, he was inducted into the CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame. ”It’s an incredible honor for me to be the athletic director at my alma mater,” said Luck. ”I care deeply about this school, and WVU is truly one of the outstanding land-grant universities in the country. I am so pleased to be a part of the leadership team assembled under President Clements at a dynamic and strategic time in its history.” He is married to the former Kathy Wilson. They have two sons and two daughters: Andrew, a former All-American quarterback and two-time Heisman Trophy finalist at Stanford and No. 1 overall pick of the 2012 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts; Mary Ellen, a junior volleyball player at Stanford; Emily, a freshman at Stanford and Addison, who attends Morgantown High.
