Men's soccer / NJAC
« on: August 29, 2017, 09:03:08 am »
In looking at the NJAC this year there are a couple of things to know as there has been a lot of changes since Montclair State won the conference championship last year. Some of the best players to ever play in the NJAC are gone. Colofranson from Stockton is gone and the trio of Terci, Olla and Damian graduate from Montclair. There has also been some movement inside the conference with Ramapo's first team all conference forward Ryan Campbell having transferred to Rowan along with another former Ramapo stand out Modou Sowe.

Top Returners


Rowan returns six all-conference players from its 2016 NCAA Tournament squad, including junior forward Shane Doherty, senior forward Travis Ward, senior midfielder Jake Conners, senior midfielder Tyler Logar, junior goalkeeper Kyle Dennis, and the 2016 NJAC Defensive Player of the Year in junior back Will Sjaastad. Also, first team all conference forward Ryan Campbell having transferred to Rowan along with another former Ramapo stand out Modou Sowe.

Rutgers-Newark returns six all-conference players from its 2016 NJAC regular season championship squad, including senior back Arek Szoldrowski, junior midfielder Breno Lustosa, sophomore goalkeeper Andres Medina, senior midfielder Carlos Castro, senior back Isaiah Kuris, and the 2016 NJAC Rookie of the Year in sophomore forward Fabio De Sousa. 

The Red Hawks return a pair of all-conference players from their 2016 NJAC championship team in junior midfielder Rafael Terci and senior back Mike Taranto.

Rutgers-Camden returns four all-conference performers from its 2016 ECAC Tournament squad, including senior forward Aaron Muse, senior midfielder Brad Maine, senior midfielder Darnell Brown, and the 2016 NJAC Goalkeeper in the Year in junior net minder James Brett.

The College of New Jersey return one all-conference player from the 2016 season in junior goalkeeper Dan Walsh.

Kean returns one all-conference player from its 2016 NCAA Tournament squad in junior back Nicholas Sica.

Ramapo returns a pair of all-conference players from its 2016 ECAC Tournament squad in junior midfielder Trevor Albrecht and sophomore back Justin Charkowski.

WPU returns four all-conference performers from its 2016 ECAC Tournament squad, including sophomore forward Keysean Brant-Sharp, sophomore midfielder Darwin Cruz, senior midfielder JP Gonzales, and junior back Zach Perez.

Men's soccer / 2017 Classes

Rowan has absolutly loaded up this offseason! In the 4th season of the new regime Coach Baker and his staff have put together a team that will have a legit chance to win a national title in 2017. Last year the Profs made a nice run. They spent time at #1 last year and only lost 3 games all year. Losing to eventual champion Tufts 1-0 in the tournament.

Next year the profs are brining in some of the best players in the country!

New players coming in:

Ryan Campbell          1st team all NJAC and all Region transfer from Ramapo
Modou Sowe              2013 NJ POY & All American
Matt Hendrickson       11 goals as a freshman at Montclair
David Devries           
Eric Checkur              6'8" gk
Brendan Mcfarlane     Red shirt Junior (back from injury)
Kevin Primich            started 16 games as a freshman (back from Injury)
Derick Carpio            All American High School player
Blake Czajowski       
Justin Curtin
Matt Fahey                Williamstown    South Jersey POY
Alex Nicol                 
John Delsandro         Washington Twp.
Mike Shoener            Jackson
Gregg Johnson          Old Bridge
Victor Figueroa          Mainland
Aaron Robertson       Christian Brothers Academy

With 2 sophomore all americans already on the roster adding these guys is scary. Campbell, Sowe, and Hendrickson are all american talents.

Men's soccer / Spring Games...Signs of things to come
« on: April 19, 2017, 09:36:14 pm »
I know that it's the Spring and there are several months until teams are  playing meaningful games again but let's go. Rowan just beat Division 1 Delaware 6-0! Rowan looks incredible, this game could have been much worse. With 10 returning starters and all region transfer Ryan Campbell added to the mix. This team is looking scary for the fall!
