Overview

William and Mary Men's Soccer (Images of Sports Series) by Al Albert


From its humble beginnings as a club team with hand-me-down football jerseys, William and Mary men’s soccer team has become an exemplary intercollegiate program. Whether judged by their 30 consecutive winning seasons or the success of their graduates—including Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and MLS stars Wade Barrett, Steve Jolley, and Adin Brown—Tribe soccer has become what college soccer should be. For almost 50 years, William and Mary has not only developed outstanding individuals and teams, but has also exerted an amazing amount of influence on soccer in their community by contributing to the growth of youth, high school, and women’s soccer.
