Topic - Taylor Kemp
This was how Sasho Cirovski and Taylor Kemp wanted it. The longtime Maryland soccer coach and one of his program's anchors sat side by side Saturday, savoring their first trip to the College Cup together.
Maryland's last College Cup appearance was its 2008 national title, which is hardly an eternity. For a program that's reached the national semifinals six times between 1998 and 2008, though, it's a noticeable drought.
"When I stopped being on the field so much, I just felt like I had to still be able to help the team," Kemp said. "I would just think of what can I do to make sure I'm still making a big influence on the guys."
"It's almost like the stars aligned this past weekend for us in the way we were playing Louisville, the team that sent us home [in 2011]," Kemp said. "For me personally, because I could finally play and the way it just all worked out. ... Just for the team to finally break through and get through. We're not done. We have a lot of work to do. But to get to where we are just felt good."
