LONDON — After seven seasons, Joey Marcum has stepped down as head coach of the South Laurel High School Boys Soccer Team. He leaves the program with a record of 102-51-6 with three region championships and three region runner-ups. This led to two Sweet 16 and one Elite 8 appearance in the state tournament. During that stretch the team also had three district championships and three runner-ups.
“I started coaching in 2014 with a group of kids that are now grown men,” Marcum said. “Some are teaching, some are coaching, some are in pharmacy and medical school. I have graduated young men that are in college, in the military and some are now playing soccer at the collegiate level.
“Over the years, I have been blessed to work with amazing young men and been supported by great parents and administrators,” he added. “I am proud every day, that I was able to be part of their growth and development. What they have accomplished and will accomplish in life, means more to me than anything we accomplished on the pitch.”
