Idaho State Soccer Camps
Neal Ozmun joins the Idaho State University women’s soccer staff after a standout career as a player and assistant coach at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.
Ozmun spent the last three years at OBU, an NCAA DII school, where he was responsible for training the goalkeepers, coordinating recruiting, and organizing team travel for both the men and women’s programs.
Of the three keepers he coached on the women’s team, two of them were named to the all-conference team. The third posted back-to-back clean sheets and led the Tigers to a Great American Conference tournament championship.
All three keepers posted a .800 save percentage or better with total saves being upwards of 90 each year.
On top of training goalkeepers, Ozmun was responsible for organizing the schedules for both the men and women’s programs. With the staff members coaching both programs, scheduling was quite the puzzle. He was also responsible for transportation, lodging, and food on away trips.
He helped coach one All-American, eight All-Region players, thirteen All-Conference players, and eleven All-Conference Academic players. The Tigers posted a 3.66 team GPA while he oversaw academics.
Ozmun played four years at Ouachita Baptist University as a goalkeeper. He is the career leader for total saves. His senior year he helped lead the team to the Gulf South Conference Tournament for the first time in program history.
He graduated from OBU in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications. He obtained his Master’s Degree in 2013 in Sports Administration from Henderson State University.
