2011 PREVIEW

2011 UMOBILE MEN’S SOCCER The University of Mobile men’s soccer team will enter the 2011 season coming off a trip to the Round of 4 at the 2010 NAIA Men’s Soccer National Championship. The Rams will once again serve as co-host to the event in Orange Beach, Ala., but will enter this season with a new man at the helm, as Dr. Roy Patton takes over for Peter Fuller, who departs after 16 years at Mobile. Patton brings a 270-146-36 all-time mark at University of South Alabama and University of Vermont with him to Mobile.

Fredrik Madsen, a freshman from Norway is a newcomer that will fight for a starting spot right away. “Fredrik is expected to be an impact player right away,” Whelan said.

While the head coach will be different, the team will return 12 players that have seen significant action with the Rams, along with some talented newcomers that will look to make their mark in Mobile’s second year of competition in the Southern States Athletic Conference.

Fighting for minutes and providing depth in the defensive backfield will be, Samuel Weeks, Justin Dillenschneider, Anthony Greenlee, Tajay Higgins, Shane Mendenhall, Alex Swan, Frank Nshamamba, and Casey Wanschek.

“We lose some key guys in Jason, O, Ruben and Maddo, but overall we return a lot of talent,” Assistant Coach Daniel Whelan said. “And, all of those returning players got a taste of the Round of 4 last year and can hopefully lead the team back there.”

Midfielders Returning in the midfield are Bernardo Zamora, Stephen Okai, Kyle Kimbrell and Eoin Dolan. All five of those players saw action in 20 or more games last season, while Okai was a 1st-Team All-American.

Goalkeepers One of the key losses is goalkeeper Jason Williams, who logged 40 wins and 17 shutouts in his Mobile career. Vying to replace Williams is senior Kyle Buxton, who is seen action in 12 games over three years with Mobile, and a pair of newcomers in Xavier Audergon and Elijah Gibson.

“Okai is brilliant at setting up the offense, Kyle provides a defensive presence and a powerful leg, and Bernardo had some very nice games for us last year,” Whelan said. “Then you have Eoin, who helps supplement our attack from the midfield.”

“Elijah and Xavier should provide plenty of competition with Kyle to fight for the goalkeeper spot,” Whelan said. In front of the keeper, will be a stout backfield that returns Josh Shields, Jubril Lawal, Chris Dillon and Marc Bowron. They combined for 82 games played last season.

11

“We’ve got two seniors back there in Josh and Marc, who should provide plenty of leadership and some stability, while Lawal is one of the more athletic players on the team,” Whelan said. “Chris was named 1st-Team All-American last year and he was only a sophomore, we expect big things from him again this season.”

Defenders

www.umobile.edu

That group combined for 8 goals and 12 assists last year. Newcomers will also have a chance to impact the team. “Michael Azira won a National Championship at Lindsey Wilson, while Kaleb Williamson is a standout from Satsuma,” Whelan said. Rounding out the roster at midfield are Alain Nshamamba, James Hayley, Ebenezer Amoha and David Belser.

Forwards Finally, up top, the Rams return 28 goals and 11 assists from the trio of Sam Blackburn, Deshorn Brown and Marc Joseph. Brown tallied 21 goals and was named 1st-Team All-American and ran away with numerous conference honors. “Deshorn is a different class,” Whelan said. “He’s just brilliant at finishing and is still only a sophomore. Marc and Sam both flashed a lot of finishing potential last year, and now we just have to see them do it over a full season.” Aiding in the offensive efforts will be four newcomers; Cameron Troutman, Gunnar Steindorsson, Camilo Salcedo and Alvaro Pichardo. “Gunnar, Cameron and Alvaro will bolster the attacking options, while Camilo, along with returnee Frank Nshamamba will add quality depth,” Whelan said. The Schedule Awaiting the players and coaches will be a schedule featuring 12 SSAC contests, now that the Divisions play each other. Conference play will begin Sept. 23 and 24 with home contests against Shorter and Lee University at 6 pm and 7 pm, respectively. “The SSAC is probably the top conference in the NAIA, and having to play all of the teams just makes our schedule that much tougher,” Whelan said. “We like that though, it will help prepare us for postseason play.” Some key non-conference foes are Embry-Riddle, Mississippi College, UTBrownsville and West Florida. “We have some tough non-conference games to prepare us as well,” Whelan said. “Embry is always tough, UTBrownsville beat us last year, and the guys always look forward to testing ourselves against West Florida.”

2011 UMOBILE MEN’S SOCCER

“Our guys really came into their own down the stretch, winning a very tough conference and performing well in three one-goal games at Nationals,” Assistant Coach Daniel Whelan said. “In the Notre Dame game, both keepers were stellar and we got off 16 shots, but we just couldn’t finish.” The Rams out shot Notre Dame 16-10 with eight shots in each period, but put only four shots on goal. Luke Holmes scored the game-winner in the 58th minute on a miss-kicked cross that found the far corner of the net. In the first game of the tournament, the Rams were pitted against Southern States Athletic Conference foe Belhaven, and prevailed in a back-and-forth 4-3 contest despite having to play a man down in the final 13 minutes. Deshorn Brown and Ruben Diaz each tallied two goals, while Stephen Okai finished with a pair of assists. Diaz knocked home goals in the 71st and 72nd minutes to seal the deal. Mobile got off 23 shots in the offensive showdown. “Our offense was really good all game long, and we needed it to overcome some defensive lapses,” Whelan said. “Deshorn and Ruben were huge, and it was a big win against a team that was familiar with what we try to do.” Next up was Bethel University (Tenn.) who knocked Mobile out of the Round of Eight in 2008. Bethel jumped on top with a pair of first half goals, but

the Rams used second half goals from Chris Dillon and Onesimus Ikungo to grab the win, with Ikungo knocking in the game-winner with under a minute left in regulation. Jason Williams made seven saves in goal. “After facing a conference foe, we had to battle a team that won it all just two years ago and we started out a little rusty, giving up five shots on target in the first half,” Whelan said. “Getting the tying goal just eight minutes into the final half helped calm our guys and then O’s late goal was brilliant. It was a huge win.” Prior to Nationals, the Rams swept through the SSAC Tournament with wins over Lee, Shorter and Southern Poly by a combined 8-2 margin. They blanked Southern Poly 2-0 in the finals. “Our guys performed really well all season in a new and very tough conference, and that performance in the tournament gave us a lot of momentum heading to Orange Beach,” Whelan said. Heading into postseason play, Mobile went 12-3-2 in an impressive regular season showing, including running out of the gates with a 7-1-1 start that showcased wins over Bethel, Southern Poly and Shorter.

“It was good to get tested some heading into postseason play, because you know all tournament games are going to be a battle,” Whelan said. As you would expect following a trip to the Round of Four, postseason honors poured in for several UMobile players.

2010 REVIEW

Serving as the host school for the 2010 NAIA Men’s Soccer National Championship, the University of Mobile men’s soccer team advanced all the way to the Round of Four, before falling by a 1-0 score to Notre Dame College and ending the season with a 17-4-2 overall record. It was the team’s 14th alltime appearance at the tournament.

Deshorn Brown, Stephen Okai and Chris Dillon were named 1st-Team NAIA All-Americans, while Brown was named the SSAC’s Player of the Year, Offensive Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year. Jason Williams, Dillon and Okai joined Brown as All-Conference selections. The SSAC West AllDivision team added David Maddren as an honoree. Brown, Ruben Diaz and Dillon were named to the NAIA All-Tournament Team for their work at the National Championships. “We had so many guys turn in invaluable performances,” Whelan said. “Jason, Maddren and Dillon anchored our defense, Okai patrolled the middle of the field and helped set up our offense, and then you have Deshorn and Ruben providing scoring threats on the outside. They were fun to watch.”

“We knew the early schedule would test us, and when the guys responded with seven wins in nine games we knew it could be a special season,” Whelan said. After that opening stretch, the only regular season losses came in the form of a 1-2 loss at UT-Brownsville and a 2-3 loss to NCAA-II West Florida. Mobile tied Belhaven 1-1 and squeaked out 1-0 wins over rival Spring Hill and always-tough William Carey.
