Athletic Training and Conditioning The Sports Medicine program at Centenary College provides students with an opportunity to participate in intercollegiate athletics in the safest and healthiest way possible. A well-rounded program for student-athletes directed toward the prevention, evaluation, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries is enhanced by team physician Dr. Mike Kelly and orthopedic surgeons Dr. Louis Rizio and Dr. Robert A Defalco. The athletic training staff includes Head Athletic Trainer Dana Baffuto, Associate Athletic Trainer Kevin Davies and Assistant Athletic Trainer Eddie Giroux. The fitness center, located in the John M. Reeves Student Recreation Center, gives Centenary students and student-athletes a safe workout environment where they can improve their agility, speed, flexibility, strength and conditioning. Using the fitness center gives each athlete a chance to improve their overall fitness, therefore making them more competitive in their sport of choice. In 2006, the fitness center was expanded to include a separate cardio room as well as the weight machine and free weight areas. The renovation also brought in brand new state-of-the-art strength and fitness equipment that should fill all our student-athlete’s seasonal fitness needs.

The 2011 team concluded the year with a 9-7-2 overall record, 4-5 in CSAC play. Coach O’Connor’s squad was honored with five post season accolades. Andrew Pinella, Quinn Khouri and Patrick Bourland all earned Second Team All-CSAC honors, while Matt Winkler received honorable mention. Rounding out the postseason honors was Reid Meeker who was placed on the CSAC All-Sportsmanship Team. The Cyclones reached several indivdual achievements in 2011 as Pinnella became Centenary’s all-time leader in goals with 37, points (93), assists (19), and game-winning goals (12) as well as several other categories. Along with Pinnella, Jason Rogers became the school’s all-time saves leader (294) and the all-time leader in wins (27).

Since becoming the head coach at Centenary, Keith O’Connor has transformed CC from a program that won just three games the year prior his arrival into a highly competitive program in the Colonial States Athletic Conference and the mid-atlantic region. O’Connor has led Centenary to 44 wins over the last five years, while guiding Centenary to one Skyline Athletic Conference Tournament (2006) and CSAC Tournament appearances during four of the last five seasons (200810, 2012). Overall, he owns 71 victories in nine years at CC. Under O’Connor, the Cyclones have excelled just as much in the classroom as they have on the playing field. The 2007 team posted the highest combined GPA at Centenary (3.08) of the school’s 13 varsity teams. The 2007 and 2009 squads featured players with the highest GPA (3.78 and 3.83, respectively) of all male student-athletes at the college. Individually, Centenary men’s soccer has groomed 41 CSAC All-Academic Team award winners and has delivered 20 NSCAA Scholar All-Region student-athletes and three ESPN the Magazine/CoSIDA Academic AllAmericans since O’Connor became the head coach. 2012 marked a return to the CSAC Tournament as the Cyclones finished the season with an 8-9-1 record after winning two critical, late-season conference games to earn the sixth seed in the tournament. The Cyclones traveled to Marywood University for a first round tournament game against the third-seeded Pacers and quickly jumped out to an early lead when Antonio Cabrera netted a goal in the 18th minute. Marywood responded with a goal just five minutes later to tie the game, however Centenary regained the lead just before the half. After a failed clearing attempt by the Pacers’ keeper, Alex Khouri took a feed from Abiodun Lawal and delivered it into goal for the go ahead goal. Unfortunately for Centenary, the Pacers fought back, tying the game in the second half and forcing overtime where they would prevail by a 3-2 score. The 2012 season began with Centenary winning five of its first six games including triumphs over FDU-Florham, St. Joseph’s (LI), and St. Mary’s College (Md.). The Cyclones later bounced back from a difficult mid-season stretch to defeat CSAC opponents Cairn University and Gwynedd-Mercy to earn a bid to the CSAC Tournament. Two of Coach O’Connor’s Cyclones received postseason honors in 2012 as Quinn Khouri was named First Team All-CSAC, and Reid Meeker was named All-CSAC honorable mention. Both Khouri and Meeker were named to the CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District First Team (District II).

In 2010, the team finished the year 10-9-1, including 6-3 in the conference. Centenary earned the fourth-seed in the conference tournament and hosted Keystone in the opening round. CC blanked the Giants 4-0 to advance to its first conference tournament semifinals in program history. The Cyclones battled but eventually fell to the top seed and eventual champion, Neumann 2-0. Patrick Bourland and Kyle Thompson were each named Second Team All-CSAC and Andrew Pinnella and Matt Winkler garnered honorable mention accolades. Pinnella set a single-season team record with 10 assists. Off the field, 12 Cyclones earned CSAC All-Academic status and the program received six National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Scholar All-Region honors. The 2009 campaign saw the Cyclones reach the conference tournament thanks to a 3-4-2 CSAC mark, where they fell to Immaculata 2-0. Three student-athletes received All-CSAC accolades, including two second team awards. Off the field, 12 players were named to the CSAC All-Academic Team and two earned NSCAA/adidas All-East-Region Scholar-Athlete honors. Centenary finished the 2008 campaign 10-10-1, earning the fifth seed in the CSAC Tournament with a record of 4-4-0. It did not take the Cyclones long to join the elite teams in the conference as the berth into the CSAC Tournament was its first since joining the conference in 2007. The Cyclones squad also earned an ECAC Metro Region Tournament berth for the second time in three years. Five Cyclones received All-CSAC postseason honors, including two named to the first team, one earning second team accolades, and two claimed honorable mentions. In 2006, O’Connor led the Cyclones to an 11-10-0 record and placed third in the Skyline Athletic Conference with a record of 6-3-0. That mark earned the program its best conference finish and its first Skyline Athletic Conference tournament berth since joining the league in 2003. The eleven wins also marked the most wins by a Cyclone team since 1999. In the process, the Cyclones earned an ECAC Metro Region Tournament berth, its first-ever appearance. Three team members were named to the Skyline postseason teams, including two First Team awards and one Second Team selection. Furthermore, Centenary garnered two NSCAA All-Region players and touted its first-ever conference Rookie of the Year. O’Connor was named the Skyline Athletic Conference Coach of the Year and Centenary College Coach of the Year.


Prior to his arrival at Centenary, O’Connor was the assistant men’s soccer coach at the University of Delaware from 2001-2004. At Delaware, O’Connor was actively involved with the organization and development of a nationally competitive Division I men’s soccer program. He helped guide the Fightin’ Blue Hens to a record of 13-34-10. Their best season was in 2001, when Delaware went 7-11-1. He also coached the AC Milan club team in 2002 and 2003. During his two years with AC Milan, the team advanced to the U-17 Delaware State Cup finals in 2003 and the U-16 semi-finals in 2002. O’Connor also served as a player assessor for the Delaware Olympic Development Program (ODP). Before taking over the assistant coach responsibilities at Delaware, O’Connor served as the head junior varsity coach at his alma mater, Ridgewood High School. While at Ridgewood, he led the Maroons to a two-season record of 23-9-5 and berths in the Bergen County Tournament semifinals in 2000 and finals in 1999. The team also won the Northern New Jersey Interscholastic League-A title in 2000. As a player, O’Connor enjoyed a successful playing career at the high school, club and collegiate levels. He became the first freshman to start for the varsity squad in Ridgewood High School history and in his four years at Ridgewood, he captained the team for two years, while capturing one Northern New Jersey Interscholastic League Championship, two Bergen County Tournament Championships and two New Jersey State Sectional titles. He earned such accolades as all-league, all-area, all-county and all-state. He was also named one of the top 22 players in the state during his junior and senior years. O’Connor completed his high school career as one of the school’s all-time greats and still ranks among the Maroons’ career leaders in points (second), goals (third), and assists (first). He was inducted into the Ridgewood High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010. A former Division I player recruited to Loyola College (Md.) (now Loyola University), O’Connor played four seasons from 1994-1999, helping lead the regionally-ranked men’s soccer team to an impressive 50-29-6 record, two Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championships and two NCAA play-in appearances in the 1994 and 1995 seasons. In 1999, O’Connor earned his bachelor of arts degree from Loyola College (Md.) in communications, specializing in advertising. His accreditations include a United States Soccer Federation ‘B’ coaching license and a NSCAA Advanced National Diploma. O’Connor and his wife, Ellen, currently reside in Pennsylvania with their daughters Cadence and Peighton. Communications, specializing in Advertising.

As a player, finished his career with 16 points on five goals and six assists, including career-highs in points (10), goals (three) and assists (four) as a sophomore. He earned two NSCAA Scholar All-Region honors during his playing career. Spivack ranks among Centenary’s career leaders in assists and was also recognized as a team captain. During his three years, Centenary appeared in two conference tournamentsand qualifed for the ECAC Tournament twice. Following his collegiate career, Spivack joined Royal Racing FC Montegnee, a professional club in Belgium, where he also continued his education. He has completed his NJYSA “E” License and holds and NSCAA Advanced Regional Diploma. Spivack holds a bachelor of arts degree in business administration with a concentration in sports management from Centenary. He currently coaches with NJ Dynamo Soccer Club, where he is the head coach for the U16 and U18 boys teams. He also is a head trainer for Pre-K Kickers, which provides soccer education for 3-6 year olds, as well as continuing work with Cerdafied Soccer Training, which works with youth clubs around north Jersey.


2013 Season Preview After battling through an up-and-down season filled with injuries to key players in 2012, the Centenary College men’s soccer team aims to make a jump to the top of the Colonial States Athletic Conference this fall. 10th-year Head Coach Keith O’Connor has guided the Cyclones to a berth in the CSAC Tournament during four of the last five years, including an appearance in the semifinals in 2010. However, Centenary is still in search of its first conference crown since joining the league in 2007. Coach O’Connor’s squad returns four of its five leading scorers from last season, including AllCSAC performer Quinn Khouri (Eldersburg, Md./ Liberty). Khouri ranked second in the league in total points (24), tied for second in assists (6) and was third with nine goals. The team’s forwards will be led by senior Nicholas Telle (Union, N.J./Roselle Catholic), a veteran of 45 matches during his three-year career. Telle posted 11 points in 2012, including a career-best five assists, while classmate Antonio Cabrera (Pasadena, Texas/Pasadena Memorial) will be looked upon to add to the scoring punch after contributing nine points (3g, 3a) last fall. Sophomore midfielder Abiodun Lawal (Lagos, Nigeria/Irvington) attempts to build on his solid rookie season after tallying two goals and four assists. Joining Lawal in the middle are classmate Nick DePasquale (Toms River, N.J./Toms River East) and senior Joseph Bachman (Lumberton, N.J./Burlington Institute of TechnologyMedford).

2013 Season Preview

Standout senior captain Reid Meeker (Phillipsburg, N.J./Notre Dame Green Pond) anchors a defensive group filled with new faces. Meeker has started all 56 games since he stepped on campus, earning All-CSAC honorable mention accolades last season, while also garnering numerous academic awards during his career. Cabrera and sophomore Glenn Brennen (Butler, Pa./Butler) will also return to the Cyclones’ defensive core and a group of five newcomers are expected to aid in the effort. After starting 17 games during his first collegiate season, sophomore goalkeeper Jesse Goleman (Pittsburgh, Pa./Taylor Allderdice) is expected to be back between the pipes this fall. Goleman recorded three shutouts and made 117 saves (24th in NCAA Division III), while earning eight victories in goal. Senior Edward Medow (Fair Lawn, N.J./Fair Lawn) will provide depth in goal after moving from forward during the preseason. The coaching staff has also brought in a class of 11 newcomers that, many of which are expected to contribute immediately. That group includes junior Sebastian Castillo (Wharton, N.J./Morris Hills) and brothers Michael Marin (Union, N.J./Union City) and Luis Marin (Union, N.J./Union Hill), a trio that has especially impressed the coaches during preseason camp.


2013 Season Preview “Those three guys have really stood out as players that will make an immediate impact on the success of this team. With that being said, we expect every member of the squad to make contributions throughout the season,” said O’Connor. After placing sixth in the league last fall, the Cyclones were selected to finish fifth in a preseason vote conducted by the CSAC’s head coaches. However, the Centenary coaching staff believes that this team is primed to battle for a top seed in the league tournament come November. “I really expect us to compete for a league championship this fall. With the mix of veteran players returning and the strong incoming class, there is no reason we cannot bring a title to Centenary,” added O’Connor. Centenary begins the 2013 season with two matches at the Lebanon Valley Invitational. The Cyclones face No. 16 Susquehanna to open the campaign on August 30 and battle the host Dutchmen the following day.

1995 Championship Team

Centenary College Turf Fund

The 1995 men’s soccer team had the best season in the history of Centenary soccer. The squad won the National Small College Athletic Association Championship that year, defeating Michigan Christian College 3-1 in Rochester Hills, Mich. In 2010, the ‘95 team was inducted into the Centenary College Athletic Hall of Fame for their remarkable year.

“It is time to take Cyclone Athletics to the next level.” That was the message of WPLJ broadcaster Joe Nolan at the official launch of The Athletic Turf Field Project on January 29, 2011.

Centenary’s Javier Velasco was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player while Jean LaForest, Osei Sarabo and Sam Mensah all found the back of the net for the Cyclones. Goalkeeper Jim Vacca recorded seven saves to preserve the victory. Mensah gave Centenary a 1-0 lead at the 5:30 mark but MCC tied the game five minutes later. The score remained 1-1 until the 88th minute, when Velasco sent in a corner kick that the Michigan Christian goalkeeper saved, but LaForest was able to knock in the rebound for the 2-1 lead. Centenary maintained that edge until, with 33 seconds remaining in the contest, Sarabo converted a Mensah shot to account for the final goal of the game. The 1995 team finished the season with a record of 17-3-1. The 17 victories remains the highest single-season wins total in program history. The team was led by head coach Tony Faticoni and assistant coaches Charlie Naimo and Rob Warren. The student-athletes on the squad were: Edmond Lubin, Dave Lakomy, Fernando Miranda, Michael Kelly, Colin Kellogg, Jean LaForest, Luckner Dor, Chris Polito, Oswald Kotei, Javier Velasco, Ivan Henderson, Sam Mensah, Zack Ressaissi, Osei Sarabo, Derrick Trim, Manny Galan and Jim Vacca.

Through The Cyclone Athletic Fund, Centenary plans to construct a new artificial turf field that will serve the Men’s and Women’s Soccer and Lacrosse teams as well as Baseball. The new field, which can even be used in inclement weather, will help propel the teams to greater levels of competition and national recognition. To learn more about this exciting project or to make a contribution to The Cyclone Athletic Fund or The Athletic Turf Field Project, call Simone Knaaps at (908) 852-1400 ext. 2336 or email knaaps@centenarycollege.edu.
