[AWARDS] Former William & Mary coach Al Albert is the 70th recipient of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s Honor Award.

The Baltimore native graduated from William & Mary in 1969, only to return as an assistant coach for men's soccer and lacrosse. He became the head coach for both sports in 1971.

In 1977, Albert elected to focus exclusively on soccer. In his 33-year career, he had an overall record of 401-187-64 (.664). At the time of his landmark 400th career victory, he was only the eighth men’s coach to achieve the plateau, and only the third to amass all of his wins at one school. He retired from coaching the Tribe after the 2003 season.

At one point, the Tribe had 29 consecutive winning seasons and 26 in a row with 10 or more wins. Tribe alumni include former MLS pros Steve Jolley and Adin Brown and comedian Jon Stewart.

Albert was also influential in youth soccer in the Tidewater area and served as head coach of the U.S. men’s team at the 1981 and 1985 Maccabiah Games , leading them to the silver medal in 1981.

He was the NSCAA president in 2008 and has played a key role in the growth of the NSCAA Foundation, the Association’s philanthropic arm.
