PASS4Soccer: A Year in Review
PASS4Soccer have always taken great pride in following the success of all of our clients, in the college and the professional game.
This past year, male and female players set off on a journey of a lifetime, starting their college lives. Meanwhile, others graduated and some even stepped up into the professional game.
P4S also took a large group across to the United States back in March for a Tour, which included visits to universities, games against DI, DII and NAIA opponents and also sight-seeing.
In this article, we take a look at some examples of male and female success stories from 2019.
After the success of having National Champions in 2018, our clients have made a real impact in the college game, once again.
Defender Adam Robinson and Assistant Coach Daniel Smee, his first year in the job, were part of the Charleston (WV) team that became NCAA DII National Champions.
Other players also made big impacts for their team across NCAA DI, DII, NAIA and NJCAA, with some of their respective teams making a good run in the National Tournament.
The tradition of players going on to sign professionally, after graduation, continued once again.
USL Championship expansion side New Mexico United announced the signing of UNC Charlotte alumni, Daniel Bruce at the start of the year, while Johnny Fenwick (High Point University) and Leeroy Maguraushe (UNC Greensboro) both signed for San Antonio FC.
