Dan Rothert, Founder, Top Student Athlete Recruiting

-Before retiring from college coaching after the 2019 season, Dan Rothert, was one of the most successful college soccer coaches in NCAA history at any level. One of the few coaches with over 500 collegiate wins, Rothert’s 613 wins at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa, between the men’s and women’s programs, puts him in rarified company. Rothert built Loras College into a NCAA III powerhouse for both men’s and women’s soccer. In his 22 years with the men, his teams won 12 conference championships and made 12 NCAA tournaments, while advancing to 8 Sweet Sixteen’s and 5 NCAA Final Fours (including finishing as national runner-up in 2015).   

Rothert also spent 5 years as Associate AD overseeing recruiting where he learned the in and outs of admissions and financial aid and uses this knowledge to help his clients find great fit opportunities and save money on college costs.

His company, Top Student Athlete Recruiting helps high school soccer prospects and families find the right-fit college to attend and compete at – academically, athletically, socially and financially.  Click here to learn more.
