Looking to revitalize its boys soccer program, Glenelg Country School has announced the hiring of Glenn Hayman as the new varsity boys soccer coach. He replaces Cliff Walcott, who led the program in 2011.
Hayman grew up in Howard County and played soccer, basketball and lacrosse for Oakland Mills High School. He was on two Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association state championship boys soccer teams (1998-99) at Oakland Mills and was named All-State as a senior.
In college, he was a four-year starter at Roanoke College (1998-2002) and earned All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference honors as a junior and senior.
He was team captain his senior year and was recognized as an NCAA All-South Region player. While at Roanoke, his teams won back-to-back ODAC championships and advanced to the NCAA Division III men's soccer tournament in 2001 and 2002.
Hayman has been an assistant men's soccer coach at Roanoke since 2007. He was in charge of player development, opponent scouting and recruiting.
From 2007-2009 he also coached the varsity soccer team at Lord Botetourt High School, leading the team to two of its most successful seasons (13-4-2 and 14-3-3). In 2009, Hayman was named District Coach of the Year.
"Glenn's experiences in the soccer world translate perfectly to GCS and what we are trying to see in our soccer program," said Glenelg Country athletic director Nan Hambrose in a press release. "His familiarity with the county, the recruiting process and his documented success as a head coach at the high school level will serve him well as he takes on the challenge ahead."
