New Central Community College men’s soccer coach Dave Silva did his homework before accepting his new challenge. After spending the last 12 years as a high school teacher and coach in Gainesville, Florida, Silva researched the Columbus area and found untapped potential.
“Columbus has a catholic school that has won state the last three years”, said Silva. “Columbus High School was number four in the state and Schuyler did really well this year. There is a lot of potential for soccer.”
The only down side of accepting the job in the summer is Silva won’t meet his entire team until preseason practice begins.
“August 10th will be the first day of practice and I am looking forward to getting started.”
Silva takes over a program that finished 5-11-1 a year ago.
