Men’s Soccer

Men’s Soccer

The King's College men’s soccer team, started as a club team in 2010, is now in its second year as a varsity program competing in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) and National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCAA).

For the Fall of 2013, The King's College Lions, as well as all of our varsity teams, are the newest members of the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC). The team got off to a slow start this season with a new coach and a young roster of 14 freshmen and sophomores. But they did win two of their last three games to close out the season, and they are looking forward to 2014.

Sophomores Isaiah Contu-Owen and Robert DeWitt, and junior Seth Parks made the USCAA Academic All-American Team and freshman Noah Schiers was First Team All-Conference in the HVIAC. Connor Christiansen, Amir Tolbert and Jeremiah Gill earned Player of the Week recognition during the season. They are a group of men dedicated to the team and excellence of every kind, and strive to serve the Lord in the classroom as well as on the field.
