Ross enters his first season as an assistant coach for the Men’s Soccer team.
He has a plethora of experience in soccer, both as a player and a coach. From the time he was five years old he played soccer until he finished college. A native of Waldorf, MD, he played for a number of soccer clubs, including the La Plata Blackhawks. He would attend La Plata High school, specializing on defense, playing center and right-back.
While receiving scholarship offers during his high school career, he decided to attend CSM because of their reputation of helping their players attend four-year schools in order to continue their athletic and academic careers. In his two years at CSM (2010-2012) he developed his skill set, playing alongside (now head coach) captain Jake Shelton in his first year, and became captain the following season of the 2011 team that reached the National Tournament. He would finish his collegiate career at Houghton College in Upstate New York.
Ross has coaching experience with players of all ages, from four year olds to young adults. With his experience on what it takes to be successful at the JUCO and Collegiate level of soccer, his leadership and player development skillset will be invaluable as an assistant coach for the Hawks Men’s Soccer Program.
