While most students are relaxing over the summer, several of the Spartans men’s soccer players are hard at work honing their games in anticipation of the 2014 season under new head coach Simon Tobin.

Rory Knibbs, the leading scorer for San José State in his freshman season of 2013, hasn’t missed a beat with his summer team, the Midland/Odessa Shockers FC of the Premier Development League (PDL).  He leads the side with five goals and has assisted on two others.
