If there’s one soccer broadcast analyst who has his finger on the pulse of both the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC and the University of Pittsburgh men’s soccer team it’s Devon Kerr.

Following this week’s Riverhounds SC’s draw vs Charleston and the Pitt Panthers big win vs West Virginia, two matches which he was on the call, Kerr joined Pittsburgh Soccer Now‘s John Krysinsky on the latest edition of Sounding Off on Soccer.

Among the topics Devon shared his insights included:

  • Impact of Pitt’s new addition have in making the Panthers a legit ACC and NCAA College Cup contender
  • Pitt Head Coach Jay Vidovich’s tactical foundation and ability to build around talented players
  • 21st Century College Soccer Model — will it ever happen?
  • Looking back at Riverhounds SC disappointing draw vs Charleston and their current run of form against teams they’re expected to beat
  • Does Bob Liley overthink things too much?
  • Can the Hounds finish strong against a tough schedule?

 

John Krysinsky has covered soccer and other sports for many years for various publications and media outlets. He is also author of 'Miracle on the Mon' -- a book about the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, which chronicles the club, particularly the early years of Highmark Stadium with the narrative leading up to and centered around a remarkable match that helped provide a spark for the franchise. John has covered sports for Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, DK Pittsburgh Sports, Pittsburgh Sports Report, has served as color commentator on Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC broadcasts, and worked with OPTA Stats and broadcast teams for US Open Cup and International Champions Cup matches held in the US. Krysinsky also served as the Head Men’s Soccer Coach at his alma mater, Point Park University, where he led the Pioneers to the first-ever winning seasons and playoff berths (1996-98); head coach of North Catholic boys (2007-08), associate head coach of Shady Side Academy boys (2009-2014).
