3 2007 Season Outlook With 10 talented newcomers and nine returning letterwinners, the Georgia State men s soccer team is confident and ready to reach new highs in the Colonial Athletic Association in We had excellent practices in the spring and a great summer workout program thanks to our strength and conditioning coaches, noted Coach Kerem Daser, who enters his eighth year at the helm. The won-loss record may not show it yet, but we know we have improved since our move into the CAA. We have been through some fires now and know what it takes to win in this league. Daser knows the difference in becoming winners is attainable with slight improvement as he pointed to the seven one-goal losses last year. We have some impact recruits and with some injured players returning, we should have a quality team. We just have to play hungry from day one. We can t just play attractive soccer and possess the ball, we have to simply play effective and winning soccer. One major source of optimism for Daser is the addition of size and speed to the team, especially on defense. We must step up just a little more as I think we built some character after what we have been through. Spenser Sumpter Daser will also welcome the new home field in Panthersville. We are really looking forward to having this better field and having the support of our friends and former players to develop a home field advantage. Our priorities in looking at the schedule will be to try to get off to a good start with two home matches and really finish strong with six of our last matches at home, the eighth year coach added. The 18-match regular season includes nine home games, up from just six the team had last year. It features 11 matches in the CAA, a league rated ninth highest in the RPI of the 32 conferences. We have added some true impact players and our skill levels have improved with our returning players as well, so we are quite optimistic, Daser concluded. Forwards Junior Dathan Knott, who suffered an injury-plagued sophomore season, after his All-CAA rookie campaign will lead the four forwards. Knott had a 20-point freshman campaign that tailed off to just five points last year as a result of his injuries. I think Dathan can return to the outstanding level of his freshman year because he has worked hard in the spring and summer and is stronger now, Daser noted. The top addition to the front line is freshman Brian Forero, who may have been the best striker in Georgia prep soccer last year. This young man has the ability to get behind defenders and break a game open, Daser pointed out. Dathan Knott In addition, Patricio Pinto-Salinas comes from Middle Georgia College where he led his team in scoring and was a junior college honorable mention selection in the Southern Conference. Midfielders Getting Floreal Pedrazo back healthy will add a major missing piece to our puzzle, Daser mentioned in referring to his senior. Pedrazo transferred from Birmingham Southern where he had scored 45 points in his two seasons there. I expect Flo to become our team leader and a top player as well as challenging for All-CAA honors, Daser predicted. He is definitely one of the fastest players I have coached in 10 years at State. When he is on, I think almost all of our op- 2 Joe Devito five time conference champions

4 2007 Season Outlook ponents will have a tough time stopping him. A trio of returners and a quartet of newcomers give quality depth to this group. Coach Daser is counting on both juniors Joe Devito and Linus Warendh for key contributions. I think Joe has All-CAA potential and can have a break through season and Linus has an outstanding soccer mind and is a great passer. Daser also notes the emotional spark the team gets from returning vet Raymond Buck. Junior college transfer Eduardo Liza played on a national championship team at Georgia Perimeter College. He is one of the best I ve seen at services from the flanks, Daser added. Lalo will immediately make our team better. Joe Castaldo has a reputation for tenacious defense and could be a general on the field for us. Coach Daser expects contributions from freshmen Michael Clark and Shane McDougall. Defenders Linus Warendth This group could be a major strength for the team. Four newcomers will push for starting roles with three returning vets who have previous starting experience. Senior Justin Davis has improved every year he has been here and is one of our best servers out of the back, Daser commented. Spenser Sumpter has started two years for us and Tobias Nagy was one of our most fit and hardest working players in the spring after making the jump from NAIA to Division I. Justin Davis The incoming talent includes Tim Lonergan, who has one year left after his career at Vanderbilt. Tim is a defensive gem and a blue-collar type worker, Daser said. Transfer Javon Carrington was outstanding at his previous college and his international-level experience from Trindad-Tobago could make an impact for us. Francesco Barbera Ullrich has the size and ability to match up with the talented CAA forwards and he had a great training environment in Chile. Brett Cummins played at Reinhardt and has a great work rate to help us, too, Daser stated. Goalkeepers State has a pair of returning goalies to give Coach Daser great confidence at this crucial spot. I can not say enough good things about Filipe Carvalho because I think he is one of the top keepers in the country, Daser gushed. He is one of the best players to wear a Panthers jersey but he continues to work harder to improve. Our defenders around him have to help him more because he is not superhuman even though he led the nation in saves. Iain MacGowan gives us great security knowing he is here to help us win, Daser noted. He is one of the most improved players from day one that I have coached and I hope his senior year is special for him and the team. Before playing the games that count, State will have a pair of tough exhibitions. The Panthers will play at The College of Charleston and then play host to national power Clemson in Panthersville on Saturday, August 25. We hope to gain a lot with these two exhibitions. We expect a large and enthusiastic crowd to come see that one. Filipe Carvalho

During his total 10 years as a Panther, Daser has been with teams that have claimed three wins over Top 25 ranked squads. He has built a strong alumni support group to help the future growth of soccer at Georgia State. State picked up a 3-2 road victory against CAA foe VCU last season, and eight of the Panthers losses in 2006 were by one goal. Sophomore Filipe Carvalho ended the season as the Division I leader in saves per game with 6.4. Carvalho recorded 96 saves in 15 games. Martin Zaluk and Aaron Shepherd were also named to the all-caa second team. In 2005, the squad fell one victory short of qualifying for post season play in their first year in the Colonial Athletic Association. Only six schools qualify for the CAA Soccer Championships. The team placed eighth in the league with a 4-7 conference record and 6-12 overall. State needed to win its last three games, all at home, but dropped the middle game 1-0 to Delaware. The Atlantic Sun Conference 6-3 record in 2004 was the best since the 2000 mark of 6-2 and marked a fifth consecutive winning record in conference play. The team has been ranked in the top 10 in the South region four out of the last six years. Daser also guided the Panthers to a conference title in 2000 by winning the Trans America Athletic Conference Tournament, their first title since Daser produced consecutive winning seasons along with the 2003 year for the first time since In 2000, Daser led the Panthers to a 12-9 overall record and a 6-2 record in the TAAC (now the Atlantic Sun). The team posted two shutouts during the TAAC Tournament and lost in a heartbreaking NCAA Play-In Tournament Match against Rhode Island, falling 4-3 in overtime. Coach Daser was named 2000 TAAC Coach of the Year. In 2001, he led the team to a 9-7 overall record and a 4-3 mark in the A-Sun after the Panthers upset No. 6 Clemson in a match at the beginning of the season that earned Georgia State its first national ranking ever. This ranking rose to as high as No. 15 in the Soccer America poll. In 2002, Daser led the team to its third straight winning conference record. Daser was also instrumental in the Panthers last championship, working as an assistant coach on the 1997 TAAC championship team.

20 2006 Season In Review Georgia State men s soccer wrapped up its second season in the Colonial Athletic Association after battling through one of the toughest schedules in program history. State finished 1-16 and 1-10 in conference play. The Panthers finished in 12th-place in the conference final standings. Head coach Kerem Daser s record improved to in seven years as a head coach. State began the season with a home match against the College of Charleston. The Cougars took a 2-0 lead until senior Alberto Villarreal scored his first goal of the season off penalty kick. The Panthers continued to battle until the final horn but came up short in a 2-1 loss. Sophomore goalkeeper Filipe Carvalho recorded a career-high 15 saves in the loss. The Panthers faced a formidable opponent in their next contest playing on the road against No. 5 Clemson. State was able to stay with the Tigers through the first half and entered halftime with a 1-1 tie after a goal from sophomore Dathan Knott. The Tigers came out ready in the second half and cruised to an 8-1 victory. State continued to play close contests over its next two tournaments but still came up just short losing to North Florida and Jacksonville at the Jacksonville Invitational, and posting losses to Eastern Illinois and Sacred Heart at the UW- Green Bay Nike Classic. The Panthers opened CAA action on the road against James Madison. Once again, State entered halftime with a 1-1 tie with the Dukes after Villarreal s fourth goal of the season, but the Panthers could not close the deal and Madison took the 2-1 victory. State s second conference match took place on the road at Virginia Commonwealth. This time, the Panthers were able to hold on and post their first victory of the season with a 3-2 win over the Rams. Junior Aaron Shepherd scored two goals in the win with sophomore Joe Devito adding another. The win improved the Panthers record to 1-7 overall and 1-1 in CAA action. The VCU win would be a sweet victory, but State would not be able to taste that success a second time as the Panthers dropped the rest of their remaining contests. Eight of the Panthers 16 losses were one-goal losses. State was able to keep every contest interesting including a classic battle at home against perennial CAA power Hofstra. The Panthers took an early 1-0 lead over the visiting Pride after Villarreal stole a defensive pass and went one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Villarreal deftly moved around the diving keeper and dropped the ball into the back of the net for his sixth of the season. State s defense continued to play solid and kept the 1-0 lead entering the half. Hofstra s Michael Todd tied the match in the second half after stealing a defensive pass. Regulation ended with the Panthers and the Pride tied at 1-1. Both teams continued to battle into the night through the first overtime still tied 1-1. The Pride were finally able to end the contest in the 100th-minute of the battle after Todd scored his second goal of the contest. Hofstra s win was not without controversy as Todd appeared offsides on the game-winner but no foul was called. Villarreal led the Panthers with six goals and 12 points. Graduate Martin Zaluk led the team in assists with two and finished second in goals with three. Two Panthers earned all-caa second team honors with Zaluk at the midfield spot and Shepherd at the defensive spot. Carvalho became the nation s saves-per game leader after he finished the season with 96 saves in 17 games. Other key leaders included Knott who finished with two goals and assist, sophomore Joe Devito, who finished with a goal and an assist and graduate Floreal Pedrazo, who missed seven games due to injury, but came back strong to finish with a goal and an assist. Pedrazo, Davis and Carvalho will be looked upon for leadership on and off the field in
