USF Teams Are Unveiled At 2007 Soccer Media Day

Tampa, Fla. (August 15, 2007) – Women’s head coach Denise Schilte-Brown and men’s coach George Kiefer unveiled the University of South Florida  soccer teams Wednesday afternoon at the 2007 Media Day held at the USF soccer practice fields in Tampa, Fla. 

Schilte-Brown and Kiefer, along with their assistant coaches, first-year Bulls and returning players, were under watchful media eyes – including local print, television and internet media outlets - as the 2007 teams held intrasquad scrimmages.

Schilte-Brown, who enters her first season as the head coach of the women’s team, comes to Tampa from Virginia Commonwealth, where she led the Rams to a 77-51-17 record and two appearances in the NCAA Women’s Soccer College Cup. Schilte-Brown will look for leadership in three seniors this season, including Autumn Browning (Orlando, Fla.), Paulina McIntosh (St. Petersburg, Fla.) and Jeannette Dyer (Punta Gorda, Fla.). Junior forward Lindsay Brauer (Cape Coral, Fla.) returns for her second season with the Bulls after garnering a 2006 Third Team BIG EAST All-Conference award and leading the Bulls with 22 points from nine goals and four assists. 

Kiefer enters his sixth season at the helm of the men’s team and owns a .597 winning percentage in that time. He returns a solid group of players including senior forward Simon Schoendorf (Karlsruhe, Germany), junior midfielder Kevon Neaves (Petit Valley, Trinidad), junior defender Yohance Marshall (Malabar Arima, Trinidad) and junior forward Jordan Seabrook (Indianapolis, Ind.), who led the BIG EAST in scoring two seasons ago. The men’s team played its final match of the 2006 season against West Virginia in the quarterfinals of the BIG EAST Championship. The game was the 700th in the history of the program and although the Bulls were denied a return trip to the conference title game with a 1-0 loss, head coach George Kiefer is determined to return USF to its status as one of the Southeast’s premier teams.

The Bulls open the 2007 season Saturday, August 18 in a cross-town exhibition match up with the University of Tampa. The women’s game will kick off at 5 p.m. and the men’s Rowdies’ Cup game will follow at 7:30 p.m., both at the USF Soccer Stadium.

USF Women’s Soccer Begins First Year Under Coach Schilte-Brown

Tampa, Fla. (August 15, 2007) – The University of South Florida women’s soccer team opened the 2007 campaign early Wednesday morning with a 7 a.m. practice at the USF Soccer Stadium. 

The team ran through various drills in preparation for the upcoming season which kicks off with exhibition play this Sat., August 18 at 5 p.m. against the University of Tampa at the USF Soccer Stadium. 

“I am excited about this team,” said Coach Denise Schilte-Brown. “Right now we are trying to figure out how to maximize our limited time in preseason to prepare for the regular season. We have a unique situation in having half of a returning team and half of a new team. Our staff must maximize our time in terms of bonding the team and getting the team chemistry together. Then we have to get them to understand our tactics quickly, buy into it and get them to accept it as their own, then execute it well.”

Schilte-Brown who enters her first season as the head coach of the women’s soccer team, comes to Tampa from Virginia Commonwealth, where she led the Rams to a 77-51-17 record and two appearances in the NCAA Women’s Soccer College Cup. 

Schilte-Brown will look for leadership in three seniors this season, including Autumn Browning (Orlando, Fla.), Paulina McIntosh (St. Petersburg, Fla.) and Jeannette Dyer (Punta Gorda, Fla.). Junior forward Lindsay Brauer (Cape Coral, Fla.) returns for her second season with the Bulls after garnering a 2006 Third Team BIG EAST All-Conference award and leading the Bulls with 22 points from nine goals and four assists. 

The regular season opens August 31 when the Bulls travel to DeLand to play Stetson at 4 p.m.

Our men's soccer should get at least 10 wins, no problem.
