Butler Adds Six Men’s Soccer Recruits

Butler men’s soccer coach Kelly Findley wrapped up his 2010-11 recruiting class with the signing of six talented prospects.  The class of Butler newcomers includes three players with national championship credentials and two players with high school state championship rings.

Set to join the Bulldogs next fall are Austin Oldham of Greenwood, Adekunle Oluyedun of Westfield, Jamie Vollmer of Westfield, Adam Glanzer of Harrisburg, S.D., Andy Holte of Iowa City, Iowa, and Adam Tormoehlen of Highland Ranch, Colo.  Oldham, Oluyedun and Vollmer each played for USSF Academy National Champion Carmel United.  Glanzer and Holte each played on high school state championship teams, while Tormoehlen was an all-state performer in Colorado.

“We are very excited about this group of incoming players,” said Findley.  “Each of them brings a high level of talent and great character to our program, as well as a history of success coupled with the determination to achieve excellence.”

“Butler has a rich tradition of academic and athletic excellence, and, because of that, we recruit character and integrity, not just talented athletes, and each of these players fits that profile,” continued the Butler coach.  “We expect this group of players to help our program continue to achieve excellence and success on and off of the field.”

Oldham, a forward, helped Carmel United to USSF Academy national championships in 2008 and 2009.  He was named to the USSF Academy Team Starting XI and the USSF Academy Great Lakes Conference Starting XI in 2008.  He was on the U17 U.S. National Team in 2008, the Region II ODP Regional Team, 2006-08, and the Indiana ODP Team, 2005-08.

Oluyedun helped Shattuck St. Mary’s to the 2009 U.S. Club National Finals, a 2009 U.S. Club Regional Championship and a 2009 Disney Showcase title.  The standout midfielder was a member of 2008 USSF Academy Conference and National Champion Carmel United, and he was on the ODP Region II Team and the Indiana ODP Team in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Vollmer is a two-time All-State performer and three-time All-Hamilton County pick as a defender.  He earned all-conference and all-district recognition in both 2008 and 2009 and All-Indy North honors in 2009.  In 2009, he was named Noblesville Ledger Player of the Year.  A two-time Academic All-State performer, Vollmer helped Carmel United to USSF Academy national championships in 2008 and 2009.  He was a member of the ODP Indiana State Team in 2006 and 2007.

Glanzer, a midfielder and two-time first team All-State performer, helped Harrisburg High School to the South Dakota Class A state title in 2006 and played on State Cup championship teams, 2003-07.  He was a team captain for Shattuck St. Mary’s, helping lead the team to a U.S. Club regional title, the U.S. Club National Finals and a Disney Showcase Championship in 2009.  The Shattuck St. Mary’s Newcomer of the Year in 2008, Glanzer played on ODP state teams in both Kentucky and South Dakota.

Holte was a starting goalkeeper on Iowa City’s state championship team in 2009 and state runner-up squad in 2007.  He helped Eastern Iowa United to three State Cup championships (2007-09) and the USYSA Region II Semi-Finals.  He was on the Region II ODP Regional Team for three years (2007-09) and the ODP Region Team Interregional All-Star team in 2009.  Holte played on the Iowa ODP State Team, 2004-09.

Tormoehlen, a midfielder, earned first team All-State recognition in Colorado in 2009.  He was first team All-Colorado, first team All-Centennial League and a team captain in 2009, and he’s a two-time Academic All-State pick.  Tormoehlen helped Real Colorado to the USSF Academy National Finals in 2008 and 2009 and a USSF Academy Western Conference Championship in 2008.  He served as team captain for Real Colorado in 2009. 

Butler is coming off one of the most successful men’s soccer seasons in school history.  The Bulldogs posted a 14-3-2 record, a regular season championship in the Horizon League, a “Top 25” national ranking and a berth in the NCAA Tournament in 2009.  Butler, ranked as high as No. 17 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America national poll, advanced to the championship game of Horizon League Tournament, where they wound up with a 0-0 tie against Green Bay.  The team’s 14 wins matched the third-highest victory total in Butler men’s soccer history.
