The “OHS” boys varsity soccer team has a different look this year. Jordan Klipsch is the new head coach after legendary coach Dave Robben retired last season.

Klipsch has had a lot of experience playing soccer. He was a four-year varsity player for OHS and was on the team that finished second in the state in 2011. Klipsch graduated from The University of Memphis, where he was a starter on the Memphis soccer team for all four years.

Robben won over 500 games in his coaching career. Robben coached boys and girls varsity soccer for over 50 years. Robben won many awards such as the National Soccer Coaches Association Midwest Region Coach of the Year Award for secondary schools and the St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame and Missouri Soccer Coaches Hall of Fame.

“Expectations are very high,” Klipsch said. “And I know I have some very big shoes to fill.”

The returning soccer players had to readjust after being coached by Robben for so long. Zach Parum (12), a varsity player, noticed a change this year.

Parum mentioned that Klipsch gets on the field with the players and works with them just as hard as he makes them work. Parum said, “He brings a different vibe to the team and makes every practice good.”

Aldin Topcagic (12), another member of the varsity team, has a similar opinion.

“Klipsch is a lot more energetic and brings a whole new style,” Topcagic said. “They are both very good coaches, but you can see the energy Klipsch brings.”

The energy has helped the team to a successful season so far. The boys most recent win was (Sept. 21) against Chaminade at the Soccer Park. The boys recorded a 1-0 win, thanks to Brian Riordan (11), who scored the goal.

The boys are 9-6 this season with their most recent game at Marquette (Sept. 26), a 3-0 loss. The boys play Friday (Sept. 29) at 6 pm against Lafayette.
