Three former Aberdeen Eagles played a significant role in the success of the 1975 men's socer team at Pfeiffer University that recently was voted into the Misenheimer, N.C., school's hall of fame.
Robert Hinch and Roger Gompers both played on the attack and Alfred Kaye played defense. All three were four-year starters for Pfeiffer from 1975 through 1978.
In the history of the Pfeiffer men's soccer program, the 1975 team ranks at the top of some rankings. They rank first for goals scored in a season-90; goals scored in a game-15; and tied for most wins in a season-13. The team also won the Carolina Conference Championship and also defeated Duke and North Carolina State universities that season.
Hinch, now 37 years later, still holds career scoring records. Hinch had 49 career goals, 39 assists and 88 total points.
