Nice recognition for our coach, who has really done a lot to turn this program around. http://woffordterriers.com/news/2018/2/ ... -fame.aspx

I am not sure why I did not post this when it came out http://athletics.wofford.edu/news/2018/ ... -four.aspx


And the most recent recruiting news http://athletics.wofford.edu/news/2018/ ... s-two.aspx

So we have six new recruits. All look exceptional and look like they can contribute as freshmen. Two from Ghana, one from Bahamas, one from England, a transfer from UCF and another who was invited to play in Holland even though he is from the US.

Sorry to be the one throwing water on this fire, but I am not in favor of recruiting a lot of foreign players. Generally they are just "hired hands" and will not be supporters of Wofford once they are gone. The various US Soccer factions have worked very hard to generate a good product in the US, and for the most part have been very successful. There are plenty of very good soccer players, both male and female, in the general recruiting area of Wofford. I know that there is a lot of competition for the better players from many other American colleges, but IMO that is where we should be headed. I'm sure there is the occasionaly foreign player who will fit in at Wofford, but I, for one, don't give my money to the Terrier Club expecting that it will go to scholarships for foreign players who may or may not care one whit about Wofford.
Soccer is perhaps the one sport (with basketball rapidly changing) that a coach with foreign connections could recruit a virtually all foreign team and be very competitive. I may be wrong and completely politically incorrect, but that is the way I see it.

Good point boulder. I had not thought of it that way. I will keep that thought in mind
