Grove City inducting two into Soccer Hall of Fame

GROVE CITY, Pa. -- Grove City College will induct two men into its Menís Soccer Hall of Fame during Homecoming Weekend October 4. Adam Headrick '96 and Sam Coffman '02 comprise the 14th class of inductees. Their induction brings the total number of inductees to 36.

A four-year letterman at stopper, Headrick earned All-Presidents' Athletic Conference honors in each of his four seasons at Grove City. After earning Second Team honors in both 1991 and 1992, he captured First Team All-PAC during his final two years. Headrick also received First Team All-Western Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Soccer Conference (WPISC) recognition in 1991.

He captained the 1993 and 1994 teams and also earned the team's Most Valuable Player award twice in his career. Additionally, Headrick's teammates twice selected him as the program's recipient of the David Brian Henson Memorial Award, which is awarded to the Grove City player who best represents the high standards of leadership, dedication and inspiration.

Like Headrick, Coffman lettered all four seasons at stopper for Grove City. He earned First Team All-PAC in both 1999 and 2001 while receiving Second Team honors in 1998 and 2000.

As a senior in 2001, he helped lead the Wolverines to a 7-1 conference record and a berth in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championship Tournament. Following the season, Coffman earned Second Team All-Region for the Mid-Atlantic Region from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Coffman also earned team MVP in 2001 and the team's Bill Buchanan Junior of the Year award in 2000. He co-captained the 2000 and 2001 squads.

Grove City established its Menís Soccer Hall of Fame in 2001. The honorees will be introduced and recognized before the annual Hall of Fame Game October 4, which features alumni against current varsity players.
