The 2018 season marks Scott Fridley's 28th year coaching Anderson University’s men’s soccer program.
He also has 28 years of club coaching experience and has taken his AU teams on eight European trips, including this past summer.
Fridley’s teams have won two regular season HCAC Championships (2000, 2004) and two HCAC Tournament Championships (2000, 2002). The Ravens made five straight appearances in the HCAC Tournament final from 1998-2002, and again made the finals in ’05, ’10, ’12 and ’14.
The veteran coach’s players have been named HCAC First or Second Team All-Conference 76 times, and he has coached three HCAC Most Valuable Players.
Under Fridley, the Ravens have been named to the NSCAA National Academic Team 19 of the last 20 seasons, and have won the NSCAA National Ethics Award five times, the only men’s program in the country to achieve this honor. In 2000, Fridley led the team to a school-best 13-8 record and the school’s first regular season and post-season HCAC Championship.
A four-year starter in net for AU, Fridley still holds many of the school’s goalkeeping records. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Business from AU in 1991. He minored in Christian Ministries.
Fridley resides in Anderson with his wife Wendy. They have five children: Aaron, Austin, Casey, Madison and Mason.
