Bill Jeffrey College Long-Term Service Award

BILL JEFFREY COLLEGE LONG-TERM SERVICE AWARD

The Bill Jeffrey Award, recognizing long-term service to United Soccer Coaches and intercollegiate soccer, is named for the former Penn State coach who played a major role in shaping soccer and the association.  Jeffrey was the head coach of the 1950 U.S. World Cup team that defeated England, 1-0, in one of the greatest upsets in the history of soccer.  He was the coach of Penn State for 26 seasons, winning 10 national collegiate championships, and is a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame.  A founding member of the association, he served as its president in 1948. Each year, United Soccer Coaches presents this award to a person who has raised intercollegiate soccer to new heights through his or her long-term dedication to the game.
