VESTAL, N.Y.—The Binghamton men’s soccer program has announced the hiring of Steven Blackwell as an assistant coach. He arrives from Ithaca College, where he was an assistant coach with the Bombers the previous two seasons.
At Ithaca, Blackwell was involved in training, recruiting and community relations. He also oversaw the academic plan for the program.
Since October 2010, Blackwell has also been a professional staff coach with B.C. Fusion/United F.C. He was in charge of developing and executing strategic practice sessions and training athletes ranging in age from 8-18.
A 2008 graduate of LeMoyne, Blackwell was the Head JV Coach at nearby Owego Free Academy in 2008 and 2009. He led the squad to a two-year record of 22-4-1.
During his undergraduate career, Blackwell was a four-year letterwinner for the Dolphins, who were nationally ranked each year at the NCAA Division II level. LeMoyne made the NCAA tournament in 2005 and 2007 and captured the Northeast 10 Conference tournament in 2005 for the first time in school history. As a senior in 2007, Blackwell led the Dolphins in goals and total points.
In the summer of 2007, Blackwell played In the Premier Development League (PDL) for the then Albany Admirals.
“I’m excited to have Steve join our staff. I have known Steve since his high school days when he was a key player for Owego and then at Lemoyne in college,” Binghamton head coach Paul Marco said. “His energy and passion for the game as well as his desire to grow as a college coach is outstanding and one of the first things you notice about him.
