College Placement

College Placement Program

Overview and Director

The LG Celtics College Placement Program (CPP) assists all players and their families with the college application and recruiting process. 

We will assist in generating a list of schools to work with, provide seminars, and focus on making the process easy and enjoyable. In addition, we know not all players will choose to continue to play soccer in college and have designed this program to provide benefits for any player going through the college selection and admissions process. 

The College Placement Program will foster and develop relationships with university and college programs to create a consistent avenue for LG Celtics’ players to achieve their goals.

The College Placement Director’s role is to help parents and players navigate the process through online resource guides, quarterly workshops, ACT/SAT test prep, and individual consultations. 

Kevin has experience as a Head and Assistant Coach at the NCAA DI, DII, and DIII levels and as a professor and Admissions Director at the Junior College and University levels. He is the current First XI Director for LG Celtics, has experience as a Talent ID Scout for the United States Soccer Federation, and has a proven track record of placing players at colleges all over the United States, from Junior College to Division 1.
