Paul Eichfeld was awarded the 2012 South Dakota State Soccer Recreation Coach of the Year. Dave LaCombe, a member of the SDSSA Board of Directors presented the award to Paul during the Yankton Youth Soccer Association Annual General meeting.
Eichfeld has coached for the past 8 years, with 5 year being in Yankton, SD. He started playing soccer at the age of 5 and continued playing in Pennsauken Youth and High School levels in NJ, and went onto Philadelphia College Of Textiles and Sciences in
Philadelphia, playing Division I in 1983.
Eichfeld continued playing as an adult, and always had a passion in teaching young children in the dynamics of soccer, and tried to keep the sport alive in all areas. He moved to Yankton in 2007, and quickly became involved in the Yankton Youth Soccer Association, and met some very dedicated people in the program. Eichfeld quickly joined in and tried to assist wherever he was needed and worked hisway to U14 Boys Travel teams, and ended up now teaching his youngest daughter, Bryn, in the U8
Girls Recreation League, and hopefully will follow her and her passion for soccer until she reaches the High School Level.
Eichfeld wishes to say Thank You to everyone who believes in what he does, and wants
to express his sincere humbleness in accepting this Distinguished Award. Thank You!
