Way Back With Baxter

An eagle-eyed reader spotted some accolades for Wyoming alum, Patrick Baxter on the Cincinnati State Surge Athletics site

"Throughout the upcoming school year, Cincinnati State will be celebrating the numerous accomplishments of the past & present.

This week, we take a look at soccer player Patrick Baxter.

Baxter came to Cincinnati State with an impressive high school resume. Playing forward for nearby Wyoming High School, Baxter set the school record with 40 goals as a senior and was selected to the All-Conference, All-City and All-State Teams in 2003.

Suiting up for the Surge in 2004, Baxter set nearly every statistical record including goals, assists and points. Leading the Surge to back-to-back OCCAC titles, Baxter tallied 54 goals, 43 assists and 151 points in two seasons which still ranks No. 1 in the college record books. As a sophomore, Baxter set single season records with 27 goals, 27 assists and 81 points. After leading the NJCAA in scoring, Baxter was named an NJCAA & NSCAA All-American.

“When you look at all the individuals that have come through our program, Pat’s name is at the top of the list,” Head Coach Mike Combs says. “He made the most of his opportunities at Cincinnati State and helped set the standard for our student-athletes.”

After graduating from Cincinnati State, Baxter went on to play and start at the University of Cincinnati, helping the Bearcats to the 2006 Big East Conference title.

After earning his degree from UC, Baxter served as the head coach for youth soccer club South Carolina United FC, a position he held until 2011. Baxter currently resides in Chicago working as a Business Development Analyst at CIT."
