Frostburg, Md —
Frostburg State University has named John Witkowski assistant coach for the Bobcat men’s soccer program, first-year head coach Keith Byrnes announced today.
Witkowski, who graduated from Hartwick (N.Y.) College this past May with degrees in both business management and accounting, was a four-year letterwinner for the Hawks. He played for the legendary Jim Lennox in one of the top programs in the country.
Witkowski also earned numerous academic honors, including the Philip S. Wilder, Jr. Award for Academic Distinction three years in a row.
A former forward and midfielder, Witkowski’s past coaching experience includes serving as an assistant coach for the Pittsford Broncos Boys U-15 team from 1995-97, coordinating the Pittsford Mustangs soccer camp from 1998-2000 and serving as an assistant instructor at the Oneonta/Hartwick Soccer Camp from 1998-2000.
Witkowski, a member of both the NSCAA and USSF, is looking forward to beginning his FSU coaching career.
"I am very excited about the start of preseason and the team's high potential," he said. "Just coming out of college, I feel fortunate to have this opportunity and am anxious to pass on what I learned at Hartwick. I am happy to be part of the FSU family."
The Bobcats begin their preseason camp August 25 and open their 2002 schedule August 31 when they host St. Vincent at 3:00 pm.
