Coaches Corner with Al de Lachica – Week 8 Coach Okpodu

Sam Okpodu enters his sixth year as the head coach of the Newberry mens soccer team after five successful seasons at the helm of the scarlet and gray. The 2008 season saw Okpodu take the program to new heights with a third place finish in the South Atlantic Conference with a 5-2-1 record in conference play and a 5-11-1 record overall, the best finish in the SAC standings in team history. Forward Debola Ogunseye was selected to the All-SAC first team, while senior midfielder Shane Abbott and defender Jeff Bell was named to the second team. Ogunseye was also named to the DAKTRONICS All-Southeast Region first team. Coach Okpodu lead Newberry to a 9-10 record overall in 2006 and a 2-5 record in the South Atlantic Conference, finishing sixth. Three total players were placed on the all-SAC first and second teams. In 2005, Newberry went 7-9-2 overall and 1-6 in SAC play. Okpodu led Newberry to a 9-7-2 overall record and a 3-3-1 South Atlantic Conference record in 2004, both tops in school history. The men also finished fifth in the SAC, what was then their highest conference finish ever. The success found in 2004 included two all-conference selections and one all-region selection. Newberry finished the season ranked eighth in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Appalachian Region rankings, also a first for the program. In addition to compiling the best overall and conference records in program history, the men also racked up an eight match unbeaten streak
