Soccer coach Anthony Adams given honorable award

January 26, 2013 by  

Anthony Adams, a native of Dundalk and the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) associate head men’s soccer coach, has been given his sixth award for being one of America’s top assistant coaches.

Beginning in the year 2000, Adams has been continuously receiving this award by College Soccer News. According to a recent press release, this past season, UMBC fell in the second round of the NCAA Tournament and won a game in the America East Conference.

UMBC plays at the Division I level, and Adams was one of 15 assistant head coaches picked at this division. In 2003, AFLAC named Adams and 27 other college coaches Assistant Coach of the Year. He was last honored after the 2010 season.

The school has stated that Adams played soccer at the same college he coaches at UMBC from 1992 to 1995 and began his career by coaching under head coach Pete Caringi, Jr. in 1997. Based in Catonsville, UMBC has proudly won three conference titles with the three NCAA Tournament berths also being worthy of poster printing.

It is likely that Anthony Adams will continue to win awards for his hard work and coaching efforts, as he has formed an obvious pattern of receiving top assistant coach awards throughout the years. The UMBC men’s soccer team no doubt appreciates his impact on the team, as his coaching skills helped to win its three conference titles in the NCAA Tournament.
