Division 1 Men

A page for tracking Programs and Players. The Table below lists the players by School and then by graduation date, favoring seniors. There is also a list of current commitments, either verbal or written, at the bottom of the table as noted by graduation date. As players graduate, I’ll move the information to a table at the bottom below the listing of Missouri and St Louis metro area schools competing at this level.

rr-hermann-stadium-slubillikensSt Louis University Billikens, A10 Conference

The Billiken’s play soccer at Hermann Stadium. The facility has hosted seven eight conference tournaments and has been an NCAA Tournament venue in nine of the 12 years since the renovation. Most notably, the facility was the home of the 2006 NCAA Men’s Soccer College Cup, which SLU hosted in conjunction with the St. Louis Sports Commission.

The stadium is located one block east of Grand Boulevard on Laclede Avenue, just behind the Busch Student Center. Game parking is available a short walking distance away in a 2,000-car garage at the intersection of Olive Boulevard and Compton Avenue. The Billiken Sports Center’s baseball and softball diamonds are adjacent to Hermann Stadium, and Chaifetz Arena, which opened in April 2008, is located to the southeast.

The Hermann Stadium renovation began March 17, 1999, with the removal of the synthetic surface. The sod for the natural-grass field was laid May 25. The state-of-the-art surface is a mixture of blue grasses that cover 155,000 square feet. The Billikens play on a regulation 120×75-yard soccer pitch.

The surface sits upon an 8,400-ton root zone composed of 90 percent sand and 10 percent peat moss. A four-inch gravel drainage blanket is composed of 3,100 tons of pea gravel. The drainage system is capable of filtering 10 inches of rain in an hour. The grass is watered by a sprinkler system that features 70 sprinkler heads connected by approximately 1.5 miles of piping.

The addition of permanent seating on the east side of the stadium, along with expansion of the main grandstand, increased the facility’s seating capacity from 2,400 to 6,050.

The SIUE Cougars play at Korte Stadium. The facility was named for Ralph Korte, a 1968 alumnus who has given generously to the University. The stadium, which seats 3000, is home to both the SIUE soccer and track programs. Bob Guelker Field, named in his honor after he served as soccer coach from 1967-1986, is situated inside an oval track, creating a European-style atmosphere. The track itself is eight 400-meter lanes and is made of the same surface used on the track in two recent Olympic Games.

The 1994 U.S. Olympic Festival was held at Korte Stadium, and in July 1998, Jackie Joyner-Kersee competed in a highly televised track and field event hosted in the stadium. Each summer, the Prairie State Games return to the SIUE campus for competitions held in Korte Stadium. The soccer field and track also serve as venues for a variety of high school, collegiate, national amateur, and international athletic events.
