Okay, so he briefly coached for Notre Dame.  That being said, John Stollmeyer will remain a Hoosier in my heart forever.

Stollmeyer played two seasons in Major Indoor Soccer League and one each in both the American Soccer League and AmericanProfessional Soccer League.  He also earned thirty-one caps with the U.S. national team from 1986 to 1990 and was a member of the U.S. team at the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

Stollmeyer set the IU career assist record and currently ranks third on IU career list.  He played professionaly with the Cleveland Force and was rookie of the year in 1086 and 1097.  In 1987, he was also a member of the Pan American Games team and the World University Games team.  In 1988, he went on to the US Olympic team and the 1990 US World Cup Team.

At 47, Stollmeyer is retired from professional ranks but still keeps in great shape by playing men’s indoor league.

When asked about soccer, Stollmeyer says,

We still don’t lose.  We look like a bunch of old bums, but we still know what we’re doing.

The love of thegame never really dies.  Today, Stollmeyer is Vice President of investments for Raymond James in Indianapolis.

And, of course, his children all play soccer.
