6 SEASON PREVIEW C 2009 Men s Soccer Outlook The 2009 soccer season has arrived with the high expectations. A veteran group has been joined by a group of gifted newcomers to give Stanford a strong array of talent. The Cardinal is looking to be nationally competitive with a goal of returning to the NCAA playoffs for the first time since 2002, when they made it all the way to the national final. The expectation is that the team will be nationally competitive again, said head coach Bret Simon. The reason that the expectations are so high is the higher level of talent and the increased depth. Stanford will also be bolstered by the return of two of the team s top players, Evan Morgan and T.J. Novak, who missed the 2008 season due to injuries. Evan and T.J. are exactly the kind of players and leaders that all teams need in order to be successful, said Simon. They ve both overcome adversity. They both care deeply about the program, and of course they are both very talented players. The team returns seven starters, including five seniors who have been mainstays of the program (Novak, Morgan, Michael Strickland, Thiago Sa Freire and John Moore). A trio of juniors (Bobby Warshaw, Ryan Thomas and Cameron Lamming) are former youth national team members who have the potential to make a major impact this season. Both Warshaw and Strickland were first team All-Pac-10 performers in 2008, with Warshaw also earning third team All-America honors from TopDrawerSoccer. com. Although Warshaw has been Stanford s leading scorer the last two years, he took on a defensive role during the spring season. This should bolster an already strong defense, anchored by Moore, a four-year starter in the net. Last season, the Cardinal allowed just 21 goals in 18 games. Among the 12 other returners are the spring s leading scorer, Dominique Yahyavi and dynamic midfielder Garrett Gunther. Attackers Daniel Leon, Cullen Wilson and Alexander Binnie will be vying for starting positions. Clayton Holz seemed to find a home as an outside defender in the spring season. Kevin Huang, Shaun Culver, Ben Grafentin and Tommy Ryan all showed well at times over the past year in defensive roles. Adoni Levine and Taylor Amman showed promise and the ability to play more than one midfield or attacking position in Simon also believes that an outstanding spring has made the Cardinal ready for a breakout 2009 season. The spring was the beginning of the coming of age for this team, he said. We have lots of talented players who now have a year or two under their belts. They have a better understanding of their roles on the field and they ve been gaining confidence in their ability to create and score goals. The strong spring season also may have renewed the focus of a team that now believes it can compete at the national level. The entire team has really put in the preparation including having all players pass the preseason fitness test which is the first time that s happened since I ve been at Stanford, said Simon. In addition to the group of returners, six new faces will join the 2009 squad as incoming freshmen. All have impressive credentials and have played for some of the top youth soccer programs in the country. They are goalkeepers Jason Dodson (Lakeridge H.S., Ore. and Lake Oswego SC) and Galen Perkins (Westbrook H.S., Maine and Seacoast United SC), defender Hunter Gorskie (Marlboro H.S., N.J. and PDA), outside midfielder Eric Anderson (University H.S., San Francisco, Calif. and Marin FC) and strikers Adam Jahn (Jesuit H.S., Calif. and San Juan SC) and Dersu Abolfathi (University H.S., Irvine, Calif. and LA Galaxy). Position By Position Preview Forwards Sixth-year senior Evan Morgan leads a young group packed with potential. Morgan returns from two separate knee injuries and is ready to regain his 2006 form when he led the Cardinal in goals. Junior Daniel Leon also should make a major impact. The youth comes from a trio of sophomores: Taylor Amman, Cullen Wilson and Alexander Binnie, and freshman Adam Jahn. Amman has shown skill playing wide and with the ball at his feet, while Jahn enters the collegiate ranks as a two-time Gatorade California State Player of the Year. Central Midfielders Returning All-Pac-10 first team player Michael Strickland leads this deep and talented group. Strickland will man the middle of the field from his holding midfield spot. He will be joined in the middle by fellow senior Thiago Se Freire to give the Cardinal a dynamic and experienced central midfield. Adoni Levine returns for his sophomore season and has shown lots of skill on the ball. Also joining the mix in the middle is heralded freshman Dersu Abolfathi, who should push for immediate playing time. Wide Midfielders Junior Dominique Yahyavi returns with the most experience and has shown great one-on-one skills. Sophomores Garrett Gunther and Clayton Holz saw significant time as freshmen and are key components to the 2009 squad. Freshman Eric Anderson enters the mix with ability to play right away. Central Defenders Leading scorer and All-Pac-10 first teamer, junior Bobby Warshaw settles into a new role leading the Cardinal defense. He will be joined in the middle by a pair of juniors, the exceptional passing Kevin Huang and the big and tough Shaun Culver. Sophomore Ben Grafentin has also showed toughness in the middle, while freshman Hunter Gorskie could push for a starting spot. Wide Defenders Fifth-year senior T.J. Novak is back from injury and returns to his role as a wide defender. Juniors Cameron Lamming and Ryan Thomas also return after seeing major action in Sophomore Tommy Ryan rounds out the talented group that can both defend and get into the Cardinal attack. Goalkeepers Senior John Moore returns to complete his career as a four-year starter. Moore should be one of the top keepers in the Pac-10 and potentially the nation. Behind Moore will be a pair of freshman, Jason Dodson and Galen Perkins, who will be vying for the backup job. Schedule The season begins with a cross-country excursion to Lehigh and Rutgers, two programs with strong soccer traditions. The following weekend will feature 2008 NCAA tournament team Cal Poly in the Cardinal home opener. Local soccer powers and rivals will meet in the annual Bay Area Classic when Stanford plays at Santa Clara and home against San Francisco. The Stanford Nike Classic rounds out the nonconference season as the Cardinal takes on Air Force and New Mexico. The conference season will be challenging once again as all six Pac-10 opponents have legitimate expectations of reaching the NCAA tournament. The Cardinal opens conference play at Cal on October 2. Each conference team will be played twice, once home and once away, over six weekends in October and the first half of November. The NCAA tournament begins the weekend of November 21 and the Cardinal have high hopes of returning to the glory years of 2001 and 2002 where long runs in the tournament were the norm and the national championship is the goal MEN S SOCCER MEDIA GUIDE 5

7 COACHING STAFF C Bret Simon Head Coach Ninth Season Massachusetts 80 In eight seasons at Stanford, Bret Simon has guided teams to two a pair of College Cups, a Pacific-10 Conference title and has guided several players onto play in the professional ranks. Simon has already been at the helm for some of the biggest achievements in Stanford soccer history. But that s not surprising. Now in his 21st season as a collegiate head coach, Simon has a history of winning. He has an overall record of , including eight appearances in the NCAA tournament. In his 13 years in Division I, Simon has built a career mark, including an impressive (.620) record in NCAA postseason competition, thanks largely to four appearances in the College Cup. Since arriving at Stanford in 2001, Simon has compiled a overall record for a.519 winning percentage. Simon is one of only two coaches in NCAA history to take two different programs to the NCAA College Cup, and has been named Coach of the Year in two conferences.

Thirteen of his players have advanced to Major League Soccer, including three former Stanford stars -- Todd Dunivant, Chad Marshall and Andrew Kartunen who remain active. They are among six of Simon s former players in the league. Simon piloted the Cardinal to College Cup appearances in his first two seasons on The Farm, including a trip to the 2002 NCAA final. It marked the second time a Simon coached team reached the championship match, following an appearance with Creighton in The 2008 season was a tough one as the Cardinal suffered several key injuries and struggled offensively to finish with a record, his first losing season since In 2007, Stanford proved it was back on the upswing, earning Simon his 10th winning season in 13 years. Among the highlights of the campaign was a record against the top Pac-10 finishers, Cal and UCLA, and a doubleovertime draw with defending national champion UC Santa Barbara. During his first two seasons at Stanford, Simon had a combined record of , equaling the winningest two-year streak in the program s 94 years of existence. The 2002 club finished with a overall record on its way to an NCAA runner-up finish. Simon, who was a semifinalist for Far West Coach of the Year, led a hot team to four straight NCAA Tournament victories and six consecutive wins overall late in the season to reach the national championship game against UCLA. In his rookie season at Stanford in 2001, Simon garnered two coach of the year honors when he was named the NSCAA/adidas Far West Regional Coach of the Year and Pac-10 Coach of the Year after leading the Cardinal to its first Pac-10 championship. Simon guided Stanford to its best overall record ever (19-2-1) as the club advanced to its second College Cup in program history and made its fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. Simon achieved his 100th career Division I win in his first season with the Cardinal, a 3-1 triumph over Cal State Fullerton on September 9, Before coming to Stanford, Simon led Creighton to the 2000 NCAA final, completing an eight-year run in Omaha, the final six as head coach. His.769 winning percentage ( ) remains the best in school history. His final Bluejay team finished 22-4 and remains the program s most successful team. The team s appearance in the NCAA final was the first by any Creighton athletic squad. A four-time conference Coach of the Year honoree, Simon led the Bluejays to four postseason Missouri Valley Conference tournament championships, a pair of MVC regular-season titles and six NCAA Tournament appearances. Simon s 96 wins at the school ranks second on the Bluejays all time list.
