Anderson University Men's Soccer

Dear Trojan Army, 

Greetings from Anderson University Men’s Soccer!  On behalf of our Trojans, I would like to thank you for supporting our mission of providing an exceptional academic and athletic experience for our student-athletes.

As Men’s Soccer coach, your generosity ensures that each student-athlete can have fun, explore their faith, form relationships, and build accountability within their teams.  Additionally, Anderson University Athletics continually leads the South Atlantic Conference in academic standing and set a school record in cumulative GPA for all of our teams this past academic year!

Gifts to the Trojan Athletic Fund and Men’s Soccer has supported us as we have made our second straight appearance in the South Atlantic Conference Tournament Championship and as Ryan Tyrer and Harry Ward were named Second-Team All-SAC. 

Anderson University Men’s Soccer thanks you and we look forward to seeing you at our games soon!

Go Trojans!

Coach Michael Zion

Men's Soccer uses the Trojan Stadium for practice and home games.
