ALBANY, Ga. –Director of Athletics Sherie Gordon announces the hiring of Kennedy Kabiru as Albany State University women's soccer head coach.

Kabiru was chosen as the head coach after a national search. He most recently spent the last two years leading the women’s soccer program at Salem University in Salem, West Virginia.

Salem women’s soccer program was also ranked first in Division II in points per game and was also the leading scoring offense in the country last season. The program was ranked second in the nation in assists per game, total goals scored, total points.

Kabiru is the second women's soccer head coach in program history.

"Kennedy is a great coach, recruiter and competitor that student-athlete experience. We are excited to have Kennedy lead us into our new era of women’s soccer in the Peach Belt," Gordon said. " I look forward to introducing Kennedy to Golden Ram Nation."
Last season three of the women’s soccer student-athletes were named Eastern College Athletic Conference defensive player of the year, offensive player of the year, and rookie of the year. In addition, two student-athletes were named to first and second All-Region teams.

Kennedy is excited for the opportunity to officially take the helm of the ASU women's soccer program.

"Creating a high-performance environment with players that embody a growth mindset is so important to me, so I am excited to lead a group at ASU that are driven by positive values and determination," Kabiru said. "I would like to thank Sherie Gordon for her support and confidence in me. I am excited to get to work and be a part of the Golden Ram Family."

Kabiru earned his bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Mount Aloysius College in Cresson, Pennsylvania.

Kabiru holds a US soccer grade seven referee certification.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
