Description

"The Kickin' Hoosiers" chronicles Coach Jerry Yeagley's 41 years of successful men's soccer at Indiana University, culminating in IU's sixth NCAA Championship in December 2003, which marked Yeagley's final year as IU men's soccer coach. At his retirement at the end of 2003, Yeagley was the winningest Division I coach of all time with a record of 544-101-45. The IU soccer team won back-to-back titles in 1982-83 and 1998-99. It also won a championship in 1988 and then surprised the country when, after a slow start to the season, it won it all in 2003. "The Kickin' Hoosiers" covers 41 years of determination, celebration, success, and class. It profiles IU's All-American players, the Hoosier soccer family, and the challenges that came with building the program into the powerhouse it is today. Packed with photos, memories, facts, and figures, it celebrates a winning tradition at Indiana University.show more

Review quote

"I think [The Kickin' Hoosiers] is great and needed. Indiana soccer is such a class program and can be a model for any college sport. To see what Coach Yeagley did, how he did it, and the family he created is incredible." - Brian Maisonneuve, Columbus Crew midfielder and former Hoosier soccer star"show more
