3. NSCAA: Martin takes Honor Award
January 17th, 2007 1:55AM



Ohio Wesleyan men's coach Jay Martin received the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's Honor Award at the NSCAA's Awards Banquet held on Friday in conjunction with the NSCAA Convention in Indianapolis, Ind.

In his 30 years as coach of the Battling Bishops, Martin has led his teams to seven NCAA semifinals, a pair of runner-up finishes and the 1998 national championship. He reached the 500-win milestone faster than any other men's coach.

Martin (career record: 515-99-41) also served as the chair of the Department of Physical Education for 17 years and as athletic director for 19 years. He also coached lacrosse for eight years, posting a 104-34 record with six NCAA tournament bids. He was the NSCAA president in 1996 and became editor of the NSCAA's magazine, Soccer Journal, in 2003, becoming only the third person to hold the title in the 51-year history of the publication.

Other coaches honored for their long-term contributions to soccer:

Anson Dorrance, University of North Carolina (Bill Jeffrey Award)
Bill Holleman, Peachtree Ridge, High School, Ga. (Robert W. Robinson Award)
John Ellinger, Real Salt Lake (Youth Long-Term Service Award)
Jeff Vennell, Cranbrook School, Mich. (Mike Berticelli Award)
Lothar Osiander, San Ramon United, Calif. (Walt Chyzowych Award)
