Tampa Prep girls soccer coach Cindy Schofield has already accomplished a lot in her four years as the head coach of the Terrapins. Compiling a 64-17-9 record, winning four district titles and advancing to the state final four twice.

However, those accolades still haven’t matched up to Schofield’s on-field credentials. Schofield will be honored for her time on the pitch as she will be inducted into the Florida State University Athletics Hall of Fame in September.

Playing for Lakeland Jenkins, Schofield (class of 1999) became the state of Florida’s all-time leading scorer with 238 career goals, including setting the state’s single season goal record at 70.

From there Schofield went on to play forward at FSU (1999-2002) setting more than 31 school records including all-time goals (40), assists (22) and total points (102).

“When I heard I almost fell over,” Schofield said. “I am beyond excited and honored.”

“There have been some great athletes in the history of Florida State so to be honored in this way is wonderful.”

She will be inducted in a ceremony on Friday, September 13 and further recognized with other inductees prior to the Seminoles Sept. 14th game against Nevada. Schofield is the first soccer player to be inducted into FSU’s Athletics Hall of Fame.
