Akin Records Milestone in Victory over Piedmont
Oglethorpe University men's soccer coach Jon Akin became the all-time leader in coaching victories in the school's history on Tuesday night after topping Piedmont College, 3-2. Akin, who was named Oglethorpe's head coach in 2003, won his 58th all-time contest to surpass former Stormy Petrel coach Bucky Reynolds.
In eight seasons from 1980-1987, Reynolds compiled a 57-64-11
record for the Oglethorpe University soccer program. Akin surpassed
that mark just halfway through his seventh season with the victory
over Piedmont and now stands at 58-55-7 in the Stormy Petrel record
As an undergraduate, Akin attended Saint Leo University in Florida where he was twice named an All-American and was voted a four-time First Team All-Sunshine State Conference performer for his outstanding efforts on the soccer pitch. Akin became only the second soccer player in Saint Leo school history to be inducted into the Sunshine State Conference Hall of Fame in 2006.
