GREENVILLE – Ethan Cundiff takes over the Greenville boys soccer program after several years assisting Coach Dave Ernst with the Lady Wave soccer program.

“I spent the past two years coaching with Coach Ernst with the girls program and was called about a month ago about what my thoughts were on this position,” said Cundiff. “I talked it over with him and said – it’s a full go.”

“For soccer in Greenville – both entities, both the girls and boys have to be successful,” said Coach Ernst. “Anything I can do to help Coach Cundiff he knows that I will help him.”

Cundiff brings a wealth of experience having play four years for Cincinnati’s Oak Hills High School where both boys and girls soccer is known as a hotbed for some of the best soccer in the country.

“I’m excited for this group of boys,” Cundiff noted. “We have eight returning players. We lost three seniors to graduation that were key parts of the group but I am ready to fill in with younger players and teammates and put forth the effort.”

Coach Cundiff looks to build the Green Wave boys soccer program and invites all interested GHS boys to come out and give it a try even if they have not played soccer before.

“We are really going to be working on soccer skills this summer,” said Cundiff. “Come out to give it a go, see what you like.”

“We want players,” he continued. “If you are interested in soccer, come out. We train from 6–7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday in June and July (off for July 4th week).

Coach Cundiff took time to talk about his thoughts and plans for Greenville high school boys soccer going forward.

“We are working on soccer and life lessons,” he stated. “I want to make these kids not only good soccer players but better people, better for this community.”

“What I love about soccer is the teammates that I made. I played 18 years and I still talk to teammates that I played with 14 years ago. You create those relationships and you build off them moving out into the real world, not just on the field.”

“If you listen you can learn something,” Cundiff added. “Every day you’ll learn something. As long as you listen and really work on communicating and take up that challenge we can improve.”

“Love to have kids come out,” he concluded.
