Men's Soccer Adds Gillon to Staff as Goalkeeper Coach
SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College has announced the hiring of Josh Gillon as an assistant coach with the men’s soccer program. Gillon will serve as the Indian goalkeeper coach. "I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to come to Catawba and be a part of such a storied soccer program,” stated Gillon. “The chance to come back to this area to join Liam Farrell and the entire athletic department will be a very exciting time in my life."
Gillon comes to Catawba from Saint Leo University in Tampa, FL, where he spent two seasons with the Lions’ men’s soccer program, serving as the goalkeeper coach and recruiting, fundraiser and academic coordinator for the Lions. In one of the top soccer conferences in the country, the Sunshine State Conference, with Gillon on staff the Lions were 16-16-2, including wins over #14 Lynn University in 2009 and the 10th ranked Spartans of Tampa University in 2008.
"I also owe a great deal to the wonderful people at Saint Leo University that have done so many good things to put me in this position, especially Joel Harrison and all of the players at SLU,” added Gillon. “I will be forever indebted to the Lions' athletic family."
Gillon, a native of Morganton, NC, went to Saint Leo from Lees-McRae College. He was the Director of Coaching for the Burke Soccer Association from 2006-2008, where he created both the BSA College Combine and Johnny Barron Memorial Friendlies. In 2008, Gillon led the ’90 Burke SA Blues to a 9-0-0 record and their first promotion to the North Carolina Premier Division. He helped place twelve different players at eight different college soccer programs. Gillon is currently on staff at the Carolina Soccer Camp at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill for the 5th year.
In Gillon’s career, he was a member of The Highland Football Club ('85 Red) competing in the NCYSA State Cup Final. He was named the one of the top goalkeepers at Brad Friedel's Premier Soccer Academy in Cleveland, OH, during the summer of 2003 and was also a summer training player for the A-League VA Beach Mariners in 2004. He was an NCSCA All-State, All-Region, & All-Conference selection at Freedom High School where he played for Head Coach David Fletcher and goalkeeper coach Amber Fox.
