Men's Soccer End of Season Report
Nov 30, 2004

The Farmingdale State 2004 Men’s Soccer team had a down year under second year head coach Chuck Schimpf. Despite the 2-15-1 record, a very young Rams team showed enough promise to be optomistic for the future.
Individually, the team finished the year with a number of accomplishments. Starting goalkeeper Patric Santiago, a tri-captain, was ranked 15th in the nation among Division III goalies with an average of eight saves per game. In the Rams season opening tournament, freshman midfielder Bryant Rodriguez and senior defender Trevor Thompson were named to the Swarthmore College Garnet Classic All-Tournament team. Thompson, the teams lone senior and tri-captain, will be tough to replace after becoming an integral part of the defense during his two-year tenure at Farmingdale. Junior tri-captain Brett Southard left his goalie position and became a starting forward and second leading scorer for the Rams. Junior Carlos Proano returns next season after leading the team with seven points from his midfield position. The Rams will look to bounce back next fall, when they will return 18 of 19 players along with many talented recruits.
