Jory Kahan – recent 2010 graduate – Jory arrived at Wesleyan as a 5’11, 145 pound center back who wasn’t very fast, wasn’t particularly technical, but loved the game and loved to compete. His work ethic, determination, and leadership led our program to unparalleled heights. He captained the 2009 squad to an undefeated regular season (10-04), the first in 70 years of the program. He made those around him better, not just better soccer players, but better people; and he made me a better coach.
