Moulton brings winning background to Chesapeake
New men’s soccer coach has been part of successful high school, JuCo programs
WYE MILLS Mike Moulton knows what it takes to win. That’s a great starting point for the new Chesapeake College men’s soccer head coach.
Moulton, a two-time all-state and all-region selection when he played at Montgomery College/Takoma Park, was an assistant coach with Montgomery College/Rockville’s 2004 state and Region XX championship team. He was also on the staff at Magruder High School when the Colonels claimed the 2007 Maryland Class 4A state crown.
"I’ve been very fortunate to be in winning situations," said Moulton, who also served as head coach at Montgomery College/Takoma Park. "Everyone has certain skills I know how to evaluate talent and motivate kids. And I enjoy being around young people on a campus setting."
Chesapeake College Athletic Director Frank Szymanski said he is impressed with Moulton’s commitment to building a winning men’s soccer program.
"It’s great to bring someone in who knows the league, understands the competition, and knows what it takes to run a successful program," said Szymanski. "It’s good to get Mike aboard. I’m really impressed with Mike’s knowledge of the game, his passion, and the fact that he wanted to be part of this program."
Moulton already understands what it will take to improve the Chesapeake College program, which hasn’t had a winning season since 1993.
"First, you need a coach that’s very excited and happy to be there. After visiting (the Eastern Shore) my wife and I have fallen in love with that part of the state," said Moulton. "After that, you need to get a bunch of kids interested in playing. Usually if you start with a lot of people, you can find those diamonds in the rough and kids who will give you 110 percent that you need to be successful. After you find the players, you put them in a system that’s fun and can improve their skills."
Player turnout has been a problem in recent years for the Skipjacks, but Moulton is optimistic he can recruit enough players to make the program more competitive.
"I know the talent level and the high standards in Maryland JuCo. I want to bring in as many players as possible we just need to go out and find them," said Moulton.
