Two more strong, VC Alum begin college soccer seasons for ranked teams.


With Jeff Coggan and Ben Hansen joining the college ranks, the list now stands at six active college players who played their high school soccer at Valley Christian. 

 

 

Donny Dequine: MF, Azusa Pacific University.

Entering his senior year with APU, Donny will look to build on success that has seen him score 4 goals, and 4 assists in 57 games played.  The team is ranked #2 in the Nation (NAIA) after a trip to the national championship game last season.  Dequine, who started in the final, played for the San Jose Firecrackers in the offseason

Brandon Stirm: MF, Azusa Pacific University.

Entering his Junior year with APU, Brandon already has racked up 10 goals, and 20 assists for the Cougars in 45 games.  Of Stirm's 10 goals, 4 of them were game winners. After a successful offseason spent with the Firecrackers, Brandon will look to join Dequine in helping APU back to nationals.

James Coggan: F, Seattle Pacific University.

Entering his Junior year with SPU, Coggan will be a starter for the NCAA DII's 9th ranked team.  Last season, Jimmy had 5 goals and 5 assists, and led the team to a second round berth in the NCAA tourney. The team is off to a great start with a 3-0 pounding of Chico State. James also played with the Firecrackers in the offseason, leading the team in goals en route to the O'Connor Cup title.

Chris Zambataro: F, Dominican College.

Entering his sophomore year with Dominican, Chris will look to get time with the first team.  Last year, the team lost in the regional playoffs, but was the CAL PAC champs! Chris will factor in as the team makes a push for a repeat.

Ben Hansen: GK, Azusa Pacific University.

Valley Christian's all-time leading goalkeeper takes his show down south to APU to join Stirm and Dequine in the attempt to win a National Championship. Ben joins three other goalkeepers in a competition that promises to keep him on his toes. 

 

Ben will also be fighting for the starting job on the football team, ranked #11 in the country.  Hansen will attempt to become the first athlete in ten years at APU to play both soccer and football at the same time (last was coach Basanese in '96).

Jeff Coggan: MF, Santa Clara University.

Valley Christian's all-time leader in goals, assists, points, and game winning goals has joined one of the nation's most prestigious soccer programs, Santa Clara.  In his first two games, Jeff's team has taken on Stanford, and Cal, and is ranked in the top 20 of NCAA Division I soccer.

 

Jeff will battle with other top players from around the country to win a job in the midfield.
