The latest guest on New England Soccer Journal’s “The Goal” podcast is Berkshire School boys soccer coach Tony Amolo.
In his first season as head coach at Berkshire in 2022, Amolo led the Bears to a final record of 14-3-2 and a trip to the NEPSAC Class A quarterfinals. Berkshire rediscovered the winning ways that led the program to Class A titles in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018.
Amolo, originally from Nigeria, was a graduate of Berkshire’s Class of 2013 and took over the soccer program after five successful years as the assistant varsity boys coach. Prior to returning to his alma mater, Amolo played for the Kenyon College men’s soccer team and helped them become a perennial top-10 team. As a player, he amassed a career total of 121 points (50 goals and 21 assists). Following his collegiate career, Amolo played in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) and the United Soccer League 2.
He joined host Matt Langone to discuss the Berkshire program and why the Sheffield, Mass. school is a powerhouse.
