RICHMOND, Va. – Less than eleven months after being named the new Head Men's Soccer Coach at Virginia Commonwealth University, Head Coach Dave Giffard has already built a solid foundation for the future of his program.
By securing a birth as the second seed in the 2010 Virginia 529 College Savings Plan CAA Men's Soccer Championship, Giffard is already making steps towards excellence.
In August's Colonial Athletic Association Preseason Coaches' Poll, VCU was picked to finish tied for seventh in the conference. Flash forward three months and the Rams silenced doubters with a second place finish.
During the regular season, there were eight Rams who didn't register a single minute of playing time. Another five Rams played in three or less matches this season. As the saying goes, "There are some things that don't show up in the stat book."
