The latest guest on New England Soccer Journal’s “The Goal” podcast guided a New England Division 3 men’s soccer program to a historic season last fall.
Connecticut College head coach Reuben Burk joined the podcast with host Matt Langone for a compelling discussion that dove deeper into the Camels’ run to their first-ever national championship in 2021, how the program got to that point, the Division 3 pathway, and how Burk goes about trying to land recruits in a competitive league and region.
Burk’s Connecticut College side defeated NESCAC rival Amherst in the national championship game in a dramatic penalty kick shootout on Dec. 4 in Greensboro, N.C.. A native of Westford, Mass., he played at Hobart College, before graduating from the school in 2013. The 2022 campaign will mark his fourth season at the helm for Connecticut College, where he has posted a career record of 33-8-4, which included a pandemic-influenced 2020 season.
