Welcome Jeremy Sullivan!

Jeremy Sullivan joins Starkville Soccer Association as the Technical Director.  He just joined the Bulldog family in 2018 after spending 11 seasons at Austin Peay as an assistant and, later, associate head coach. With the Governors, he coached goalkeepers and coordinated recruiting. He will continue working with goalkeepers at MSU.  At SSA, Jeremy will be working mostly with our recreational and academy programs.  
 
In 2010, the Governors advanced to the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament championship game after leading the league in goals against average (.687), which ranked No. 23 in the nation, and shutout percentage (.591), which was eighth in the country. Austin Peay set a single-season program record with 13 shutouts.
 
While at Austin Peay, Sullivan played a large role in recruiting the 2010 class that produced the program’s first OVC Freshman of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year, Tatiana Ariza. Her sister, Natalia, was also a three-time first team All-OVC selection and the pair played together for the Colombian national team at the 2012 London Olympics.
