Bill Juergens '87
A four-year letterman at stopper for the Grove City College men's soccer team from 1983 to 1986, Bill Juergens punctuated his stellar career by earning Second Team All-America recognition as a senior.
Juergens helped lead Grove City to an 11-2-1 record in 1986, which tied the program's single-season win mark. Following the season, he earned First Team All-Presidents' Athletic Conference and First Team All-Western Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Soccer Conference honors.
Juergens also received All-Region from the National Soccer Coaches Association for the Mid-Atlantic Region. He then became the fifth all-time All-American in program history. In addition, he earned the College's David Brian Henson Memorial Award for the 1986 season.
In his junior season, his teammates selected Juergens as the team's Most Valuable Player after Grove City posted a 9-4-1 overall record. He also earned the Bill Buchanan Junior of the Year award.
A native of Elkton, Md., Juergens also earned First Team All-PAC in both 1984 and 1985. He co-captained the team in each of those seasons, becoming just one of a select few Grove City College athletes to have served as a three-year team captain.
The College inducted Juergens into its Men's Soccer Hall of Fame as part of the inaugural class in 2001.
He graduated with a bachelor's degree in business and is owner, president and chief executive officer of Burns Industrial Roofing Services and MBMR, Inc., in nearby Mercer.
His wife Mara, a 1990 Grove City graduate, entered the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2007 as a member of the 1985 volleyball team.
