Sam Wilson

Sam Wilson begins his first year as the head women's soccer coach at the University of West Alabama.

Wilson comes to UWA after spending the last six seasons at nearby Meridian Community College (Miss.) as the head coach of the men's soccer program. He began his collegiate coaching career as an assistant with both the men's and women's programs for the Eagles during the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

"I am very excited to be a part of UWA Women's Soccer. It is my mission to continue in the great traditions and successes of previous teams, as well as grow the program in the classroom, the community and on the field," said Wilson.

Prior to his time in Meridian, he served as the head boys soccer coach at Newton County High School for six seasons, advancing to the postseason four times and reached the state championship match once. He was also recognized by his peers as district coach of the year three times.

Away from the college game, he also worked with the Alliance Futbol Club as its Academy Director.

"I look forward to getting started and hitting the ground running with the girls. We have lots of hard work in front of us, but with the returning talent and our new recruits, I have the upmost confidence in our team," added Wilson.

Graduating from Meridian High School in 2006, he played men's soccer at MCC for two seasons, including garnering All-Region status his freshman year and being a team captain the following season.

Wilson graduated from Mississippi State University in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. He holds a USSF C, D and E licenses with the United States Soccer Federation and a National Diploma and Goalkeeper 1 Certificate with the United Soccer Coaches.

I have had a profile on SINC Soccer for 4 years, and it helped me to organize my information so that I was ready when the recruiting process started. I had selected some schools using your site when I was 13 and that helped to start the conversation with those schools and find out about their ID camps, and when UNC made an offer I was prepared.
