HUNTINGTON, IN- Huntington College announced today that Tom Datema will join the Huntington College coaching staff as head coach of the women’s soccer program. Datema, who spent eight of his childhood years in Sierra Leone, West Africa, grew up playing soccer. After returning to the United States, he attended Huntington College and was a four-year starter on the soccer team. After graduation, he served as an assistant coach for the men’s program for a year and a half. He also has served as the women’s assistant for three of the past four years. Currently, Datema pastors the Zanesville United Brethren Church and is a District Superintendent for the Fort Wayne District of the United Brethren's Central Conference.
“We are excited to have Tom join our coaching staff. He has been involved in soccer at a variety of levels and brings a great enthusiasm for the sport to HC. His soccer experience and knowledge give him the tools to build on the successes of last season and his connection with the program as an assistant will help him make a smooth transition to his new role. We are looking forward to having Tom and his family involved again in the HC community”, says Athletic Director, Lori Culler.
