PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s the ultimate week of spring exercises for the Division II West Chester College soccer staff as they put together for his or her annual spring recreation on Friday night time.
The Golden Rams are coming off an eight-three 2016 season and head coach Invoice Zwaan is happy with how issues have gone over the previous few weeks.
“We’ve had a reasonably good spring,” Zwaan tells KYW Newsradio. “A number of the locations the place we felt like we needed to get higher, we’ve gotten higher. Some locations we’ve felt fairly good about, they’ve executed a great job of (persevering with) to work arduous and guys which are returning starters are pushing one another. And we’ve received a very good group of leaders. So, normally, it’s been a reasonably good spring for us.”
Take heed to the whole interview with West Chester’s Invoice Zwaan:
West Chester has an terrible lot of expertise returning in 2017. However Zwaan talks about one space that was a little bit of a query mark coming into the spring.
“We graduated 5 guys within the secondary final yr,” Zwaan says. “Each starters and again-ups, and particularly on the security place. Certainly one of our safeties is a returning starter in Nydair Rouse and he had an amazing yr for us final yr. The opposite two guys are going to be younger guys, however each of them performed in our nickel and dime packages. In order that they have been ready to step up and play they usually each have had actually good springs.”
On the quarterback place, Andrew Derr had a high-quality 2016 season, however Zwaan says he gained’t be again in 2017, forgoing a remaining yr of eligibility to pursue his profession within the working world. The Golden Rams do have an skilled starter again although in rising senior Pat Moriarty. Paul Dooley will probably be a redshirt sophomore in 2017 and he received some work within the “wildcat” position final season and he’s anticipated to push Moriarty.
West Chester’s spring recreation on Friday night time is about for six:00pm.
