Longtime River Ridge girls soccer coach Skip Glover confirmed to the Tampa Tribune on Thursday that he will step down from his position that he held for 10 seasons.
“I’m stepping down to spend more time with my family,” Glover said via text message.
Glover, who holds a 154-37-15 career record with the Royal Knights, saw the early exit from the Class 3A-District 8 tournament on Wednesday evening, when No. 3-seeded Hudson upset River Ridge 4-1.
“Over the last four years that I’ve coached against him, Skip has set an example for class and excellence that will be hard to follow at River Ridge,” Hudson His girls soccer coach Stephen Jones said. “He’s always had a high work ethic and treated my team with respect — in victory and defeat. He will surely be missed in girls athletics in Pasco County.”
Glover was the second-longest tenured girls soccer coach on the county, behind only Land O’ Lakes’ Vicky King, who started the program in the 1980s. Last season, Glover lead River Ridge to a region final berth and also led the Royal Knights to five-straight district titles from 2006-10.
This season, the Royal Knights were 15-4-2, even after standout senior Sarah Olin decided not to play her senior season, as well as Glover rostering just three seniors. Sophomore Darien Davis would lead the team with 19 goals.
