Davidovicz Added to Bobcat Soccer Coaching Staff

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - The Georgia College & State University soccer team and head coach Juan Pablo Favero announced the addition of Chris Davidovicz as graduate assistant coach.

Davidovicz will work primarily with the Bobcat goalkeepers, his area of expertise both as a player and coach.

He most recently served as the head coach for the Nation Ford High School men's squad, in Fort Mill, S.C., also working as the head coach of the Charlotte United Futbol Club. No stranger to working with Favero, Davidovicz was his assistant at Newberry College as well for one school year.

"Chris is someone who has already worked with me and that I trust, so when he said he was interested in getting back into college coaching, I was ecstatic," said Favero. "His work ethic, high energy, recruiting experience, and the fact that he can work with our goal-keepers are all tremendous qualities he brings to the program that will add a lot of value to our players and team."

Davidovicz got his degree in business finance from Virginia Tech in 2003, and also lettered as a goalkeeper for the Hokies in 2002.

2007 was a breakthrough season for the Bobcats, the most successful in the program's four-year history. The team shattered the school mark for wins (13) and junior forward Hayley Ferrell (Hampton, Ga.) set the individual season marks for goals (16) and points (34). Jamie Nevin (Grovetown, Ga.), Ferrell and Morgan Cobb (Cataula, Ga.) all earned All-PBC Team selections for their efforts. The team also scored the most goals (46) and gave up the fewest (17) in school history, while Cobb became the first all-region performer for the Bobcats.
