Hampden-Sydney College


2010 Hampden-Sydney Soccer Our Campus Hampden-Sydney is one of the South’s outstanding liberal arts colleges. Nestled in the gently rolling countryside of south-central Virginia, H-SC is the oldest of the country’s few remaining men’s colleges.

of sound learning.” The College’s history speaks eloquently of the powerful and enduring character of the ideals of self-reliance and service, and of its own two-hundred years of commitment to the value of self-reliant, disciplined intellect in public life.

Hampden-Sydney is committed to the belief that a liberal arts education provides the best foundation not only for a professional career, but also for the great moral and intellectual challenges of life. Students learn that the pursuit of truth is a lifelong endeavor, requiring clarity and objectivity of thought, a sensitive moral conscience, and a dedication to responsible citizenship. As the College’s mission statement says, liberal education aims to assist students to free themselves from ignorance, malice, prejudice, and superstition; from the tyranny of intellectual selfishness; and from impotence in judging the claims and values of experts. It teaches students to gather evidence patiently; it educates them to write and speak with force, precision, and clarity; and it encourages them to seek refreshment and inspiration in the fine arts. ONE QUALITY REIGNS SUPREME: LEADERSHIP From the beginning, the College’s intent has been to educate the whole individual “in an atmosphere

In proportion to its enrollment, Hampden-Sydney consistently is in the top five percent of all colleges and universities in graduates listed in “Who’s Who in America.” Since 1776, the College has provided the educational experience necessary to produce leaders in every field of endeavor, including one U.S. President, 12 senators, 32 congressmen, 12 governors, well over 100 state representatives, and a host of ministers, attorneys, doctors and judges. The College offers the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science degrees, preparing students for direct entry into the world of business or for further professional training

in law, medicine, business, government, teaching, or the ministry. Basic to the success of its program is a dedicated faculty, over 90% of whom hold earned doctorates in their fields and all of whom devote their principal energy to teaching. The student-faculty ratio is 13:1. STUDENTS RUN THEIR OWN ACTIVITIES Student life is considered an integral part of the education process at Hampden-Sydney. Students conduct their own affairs through a student government elected by them and composed of members of all classes. A student-enforced honor code is a Hampden-Sydney tradition that continues to flourish, upholding the atmosphere of personal integrity, trust, and mutual respect essential to the operation of a dynamic academic community. Responsibility for maintaining the system is taken so seriously that students enjoy one of the freest campuses in America, where books and bikes can be left unattended and professors can leave their classrooms during tests and exams.

Whether they like drama, music, classical debate, hiking, and canoeing, or even electronics and short wave radio, students can find campus organizations that cater to their interests. Many student programs involve a strong commitment of service to the community, such as the tutoring program for area high school students. The social life of the College is centered around 11 national fraternities and a strong organization of independents. Concerts, mixers, movies, and a variety of unusual programs are planned and carried out through a student-run college activities committee.

Student activities are numerous and diverse, including publication of a newspaper, yearbook, and literary

2010 Hampden-Sydney Soccer Head Coach Josh Laux

Josh Laux Head Coach Seventh Season Randolph-Macon, 2001 Josh Laux returns in 2010 to the Tiger soccer program for his seventh season. He is just the eighth head coach since soccer became an intercollegiate sport at Hampden-Sydney College in 1969. The 2007 ODAC Coach of the Year, Laux has steadily built up the Tiger Soccer program since his arrival in 2004, and is currently the third-winningest soccer coach in program history, just one game behind second place. Laux returns to the helm after leading his team to its most wins in school in history in 2009. The Tigers posted a 16-4 overall record, including a 7-2 ODAC mark. The 2009 Tigers set school records for most wins, most ODAC wins, fewest goals allowed, and shutouts. Hampden-Sydney advanced to the conference semifinals for the third consecutive season, and finished the season ranked No. 7 in the NSCAA/Adidas South Region Poll. The unlikeliest of coaches, Laux came to HampdenSydney College after four years playing and three years coaching at arch-rival Randolph-Macon College. Laux

comes to Hampden-Sydney after serving as the assistant coach and most recently interim head coach in the spring of 2004 at Macon. In 2002, Laux’s squad consisting of seven freshmen proved to be one of the Top 10 teams in the South Region and made a run to the ODAC finals. Again in 2003, R-MC was ranked in the Top 10 of the South Region and reached the ODAC semifinals. As interim head coach, Laux’s Yellow Jackets went undefeated in five games, which included elite opponents such as ninth-ranked, Division I powerhouse Virginia Commonwelth University, and the defending ODAC champions, Virginia Wesleyan College. During his tenure as a Macon assistant, Laux also completed his master’s degree in environmental studies at Virginia Commonwealth. Laux is no stranger to the level of play at Hampden-Sydney. His playing and coaching knowledge coupled with his experience within the ODAC are tremendous assets to the Hampden-Sydney soccer program. A standout player on the R-MC soccer team from 1997 to 2000, Laux is tied for 12th on both Randolph-Macon’s career goals and total points list, and is tied for fourth in career assists. During his playing career at Randolph-Macon, Laux was named All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference, all-state by the Virginia Sports Information Directors, and All-South Region, and was tabbed ODAC Rookie of the Year in 1997. As a senior, he received the George P. Compton Award, which is presented to the school’s most outstanding male athlete. Even during his time at Macon,

2010 Hampden-Sydney Soccer Laux still possessed admiration for the Tiger program. “As a student-athlete at Randolph-Macon and then as a coach, I always had great respect for Hampden-Sydney College’s academics and athletics,” said Laux. Laux holds a State Goalkeeper Diploma, a NSCAA high school special topics diploma, and a National Soccer Association of America (NSCAA) national diploma, both of which he received with a distinguished pass. He has coached for the Richmond Strikers U-17 Premier team and the Richmond Strikers U-17 and U-18 Super Y teams. Academically at R-MC, Laux majored in Spanish and international studies with minors in history and religion. He was a member of Omicron Delta Kappa and Phi Beta Kappa. Laux graduated high school in 1996 from the Haverford School near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he played varsity soccer and led his team to an undefeated season as a senior. He was named allcounty, all-area, and all-conference for several seasons, and was his team’s Most Valuable Player while setting the school record for assists during his senior campaign. On the club level, Laux played for FC Delco Soccer Club in southeastern Pennsylvania, and was a team captain from 1994 to 1997. He was also a member of the Eastern Pennsylvania state select team from 1994 to 1996.

Burke was a four-year starter on defense and earned All-ODAC honors in each of his final two seasons - Honorable Mention as a junior and Second Team as a senior. He served as team captain during his senior campaign in 2006 and helped lead Hampden-Sydney to a 10-6-2 record - at the time its best record since the 2002 season.

2010 Hampden-Sydney Soccer Tigers Seek Championship After Record Setting Year With the bulk of the team returning, the Tigers will seek conference supremacy

Fresh off of the best season in school history with a 16-4 record and 8-2 conference mark, the 2010 HampdenSydney soccer team will look to continue its success and hoist the program’s first-ever Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship. Though key pieces from the 2009 squad graduated, head coach Josh Laux has several key contributors returning along with a solid recruiting class that could have some immediate contributors.

Nick DeProspero

The team returns this season after posting program highs in wins (16) and shutouts (11) while allowing just 0.60 goals-per-game and scoring 2.10 gpg. The Tigers reached the conference semifinals for the third consecutive year, but fell to eventual champion Lynchburg College 2-1. The offense in 2010 will be exciting to watch with the top three point scorers returning to lead the attack. Leading the way will be All-Region forward Bryan Wharton (Glen Allen, VA/Deep Run) who scored 14 goals in 2009 for the second consecutive season. Wharton has

established himself as one of the best finishers in the league and is dangerous from anywhere on the field. Wharton will be joined by fellow junior and Honorable Mention All-ODAC honoree Bryan Hughes (Midlothian, VA/Cosby) and the 2009 ODAC Rookie of the Year Nick DeProspero (Midlothian, VA/Cosby). Hughes’ blazing speed and constant pressure makes life difficult for opposing backs, and he will hope to build upon his two year totals of nine Sam goals and three assists.

Turner

DeProspero returns for his sophomore season after a stellar freshman year scoring five goals and dishing out ten assists. The Cosby product started in all 19 of his rookie appearances while establishing himself as a leader on the field. His work ethic and knowledge of the game will allow him to continue to produce and create for others. Also looking to be big contributors at the forward position is senior Andrew Berg (Aberdeen, Scotland/International School of Aberdeen). Berg is a tough, scrappy

Hampden-Sydney College

21


2010 Hampden-Sydney Soccer player who has a powerful strike and the ability to create his own shots. The midfield will see a familiar face in four-year staple Matt Hampton (Virginia Beach, VA/ Kellam). The senior will again look to lead the Tiger offense in the midfield with much of the productivity starting with him. He possesses a great knowledge of the game, knowing where to be and where to go, and continues to be one of the best creators on the team. With 11 assists to his name through three years, Hampton will continue to control the midfield and advance the attack.

Matt Hampton

Joining Hampton will be sophomore Chris Whiteside (Virginia Beach, VA/Frank W. Cox) and junior Kevin Anderson (Midlothian, VA/Cosby). Whiteside saw significant time as a freshman appearing in 19 games while starting in 13. The Virginia Beach native proved to be a dependable source in the midfield while tallying three assists and adding a goal. Anderson will look to crack the starting lineup in his ju-

22

nior season while giving Coach Laux another smart, crafty player in the middle of the field. With the ability to see the field and create, Anderson is a solid option to control the tempo and distribute to the offense. Also vying for time in the midfield is sophomore Connor McCarthy (Midlothian, VA/Clover Hill). McCarthy appeared in 12 games as a freshman and will give Laux some depth and options in the midfield. The Tiger defense, which saw great success in 2009, will Andrew Berg feature a mix of familiar and new faces. Returning to the starting lineup will be senior Sam Turner (Richmond, VA/Benedictine) and sophomore Curran Blackwell (Wilson, NC/Greenfield). The two center backs have a great physical presence and will provide solid interior defense. They are also both solid in the air and win almost anything that comes their way. Turner, a three-year starter, will be the vocal leader of the defense and will look to continue the dominance he has been a part of for the past three years. Joining the defense this year will be ju-

Hampden-Sydney College


2010 Hampden-Sydney Soccer nior Gregorio Pacheco (Montclair, NJ/ Montclair). The Montclair, New Jersey native has proven he can play multiple positions, but his speed and tracking ability will allow him to see ample time as a back. Also competing for time in the back will be sophomore Scott CutChris Whiteside ler (Williamsburg, VA/Jamestown). Cutler showed good signs in his freshman season and has improved his game over the off season. He can provide another smart and physical back for Coach Laux.

The Tigers have no easy schedule in 2010 as they open up the regular season at home on September 1 against Averett. They then travel south to compete in Emory’s Sonny Carter Invitational on September 4th and 5th before returning home on the 11th to host the HampdenSydney Classic where they will be playing Moravian College and Landmark Curran Conference Champion and NCAA Tournament participant Catholic University.

Blackwell

Looking to continue his stellar work between the pipes is senior keeper John Robert Plyler (Charlotte, NC/Myers Park). Plyler has been solid through his first three seasons amassing a 0.80 goals-against-average while also being named the 2007 ODAC Rookie of the Year and a Second Team honoree in 2009. Plyler will be backed up by two solid juniors, Jay Bowman (Durham, NC/Durham Academy) and Duncan Oliphant (Annapolis, MD/Annapolis).

the ODAC sponsored competition in 10 men’s varsity sports, including football, soccer, and cross country in the fall; basketball, wrestling, and indoor track and field in the winter; and baseball, golf, tennis, and outdoor track and field in the spring. Women’s sports were added prior to the 1982-83 school year. Today, the ODAC has grown to sponsor championships in 22 sports (10 men and 12 women) and houses nine fulltime coeducational institutions with four single-gender schools making up the current 13 full-time members.

The conference expanded in the late 1980s, early 1990s and most recently in 1999. Virginia Wesleyan became the 13th member of the conference in 1988 and began full-scale competition in the league in the 1989-90 academic year. Guilford College, voted into the conference in the spring of 1990, began competing for conference championships in the

1991-92 season. The Catholic University of America (DC) was accepted for associate membership in football on January 12, 1999. Over the past 17 years the conference and the City of Salem, Va., have gained national attention through hosting five NCAA Division III championships in football, men’s basketball, softball, baseball, women’s lacrosse, and volleyball. The growing list of titles passed out in Salem began in the fall of 1993 with the DIII Football Championship. Through the 2009-10 academic year, the conference and city have hosted 49 NCAA Division III Championships since the 1993 Stagg Bowl. This year, the two will serve as hosts to the DIII football, men’s basketball and softball national championships.
