Jay Martin | Head Coach | Men’s Soccer | Ohio Wesleyan University

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

  • Good student
  • Good citizen
  • Athletic
  • Passionate
  • Loves to play
  • Good sense of humor
  • Good guy
  • Achievement motivation


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

The athletes/people who score high in achievement motivation do well here – and everywhere. I try to find players “flying under the radar” who have great potential that others may not see. I have MANY stories after 37 years about “rags to riches” players, that’s what we do best.
