Georgetown College men's soccer plays a lot of tough competition throughout the year with four or five teams inside the Mid-South Conference usually in the rankings or receiving votes. So why not test the Tigers in the spring season coach Derek Willis decided.
He set up spring games with University of Kentucky, Centre College, Southern Indiana and Spaulding.
Nathan Noble, a recent Georgetown College assist men's soccer coach, is another step closer to splitting the uprights of his dreams. The former Woodford County High School standout goalie and military veteran began to ‘kick' around the idea of playing football with one year of athletic eligibility left.
While coaching the Tigers he would occasionally find himself kicking field goals after practice with random football left on the practice surface. What he found was that he could still kick really well.
Georgetown College men's soccer assistant Nathan Noble has been creating a buzz recently over his contemplation on trying to kick for a college football team. The 28-year-old Versailles native served his country on multiple tours after high school and enrolled at University of Kentucky in 2009, giving him one year of NCAA eligibility left.
The cost is $90 and campers will be exposed to the recruiting process - how it works and what each player should be doing to get recruited - as well as several practice sessions and large-sided games. Nearly 50 percent of the Tigers roster comes from players who have attended this camp.
Georgetown College men's soccer played its third Top 5 opponent Tuesday night when defending national champion Lindsey Wilson College came to town. The Tigers (2-11, 2-5) got behind early and could never recovered in an 8-0 loss as the No. 2 Blue Raiders (12-1, 8-1) were hungry to bounce back from a recent setback to then No. 2 University of Rio Grande.
"We knew it wasn't the most optimum situation for us to be going against such a powerful team," said Tiger coach Derek Willis. "They had nine days rest, we had two, and they were looking for a statement after losing the top spot to Rio."
