College of Charleston assistant men’s soccer coach Troy Lesesne was honored as one of the top-15 assistant coaches in the nation by CollegeSoccerNews.com, a leading publication on NCAA Soccer.
CSN releases its list of the most-impactful assistants annually and this is the second time Lesesne’s dedication and tireless work ethic have gotten him recognized.
“Troy is extremely committed to the Cougars and his energy is amazing in all areas of our program,” said head coach Ralph Lundy. “He keeps growing and demonstrating great expertise which is well received by our players.”
CSN annually recognizes the assistant coaches across the country who are excelling at their work and impacting the game and their respective programs. The criteria are based on efforts and dedication toward the coaches’ respective programs but additional weight is also placed on the teams’ success on the field.
The 2012 season was Lesesne’s fifth as assistant coach and eighth as a member of the CofC men’s soccer coaching staff. Lesesne serves the program in a wide range of capacities such as leading training, monitoring academics, coordinating recruiting efforts, maintaining alumni relations, scheduling, budgeting and managing equipment. His continuous efforts greatly alleviate the responsibilities of his fellow coaches and members of the athletic department.
Lesesne was a standout player for CofC and an integral member of the 2004 Southern Conference champion team which advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. He was named to the NSCAA/Adidas All-American team as well as the NSCAA/Adidas All-South first team.
