Bobby Adkins | Assistant Coach | Men’s Soccer | University of Indianapolis

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

The qualities our program looks for in student-athletes are a desire to come and enjoy the game everyday as well as a hard work ethic on and off the field. Taking the time to prepare properly to be at ones best when it comes to the game.

 

Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

This year we had a player who came onto the team last fall as a walk-on and didn’t get a chance to see the field once. Spring season came around and we as a coaching staff were on the verge of letting him know that he will most likely never play for the Hounds. Over the summer he took the time to put in the extra work and made the most out of his opportunity. Ended up starting the majority of the season and became a very important part of our team.
