Neumann University graduate student Johanna Gelber recently won the Soccer Coaches of America Association Award for 2010 College Assistant Coach of the Year in the Middle Atlantic Region.
Gelber is the assistant soccer coach with the women’s team at King's College and is currently a graduate student in the sport management program at Neumann. She coaches with Frank Carozza, the head women’s soccer coach at King’s.
Gelber didn’t even know she was nominated for the award until she got an email telling her she had won. “Coach Carozza didn’t tell me about it. It feels neat to know that I was chosen by my peers, most of whom don’t know me. I am glad to know that others see that I am working hard and trying to do good things,” she said.
“Coaching at King's this year with Coach Carrozza has given me the opportunity to be involved with all aspects of our growing program. This opportunity, combined with the classes I have been taking at Neumann, have helped prepare me to take over my own college soccer program one day,” she said.
She will attend the 2011 NSCAA Convention in Baltimore, Maryland, on January 13, 2011, where she will receive her award and the Glenn “Mooch” Myernick National Assistant Coach Award-winner will be announced.
