The life of a soccer defender can be a lonely one.
Chances to get in the scorebook are few and far between, and often the only time the defender gets noticed is when a defensive breakdown leads to a goal for the opposing squad.
But Aaron Maynard, a standout defender for the Millersville Marauders who once played for the Chambersburg Trojans, has defined how the position is played during his time on the field. The 6-foot-2, 160-pound has started in all 16 games for a Millersville defense that is allowing less than one goal per game.
And while there are few stats to Maynard’s name, he has more accolades than we can count. In 2022 alone, he was named the PSAC East Defensive Player of the Year, All-PSAC East First Team, CSC Academic All-District Team, D2CCCA All-Atlantic Region First Team, and D2CCA Third Team All-American.
Maynard could be up for recognition again this fall as Millersville has just two losses in 15 games this season for the Marauders, who are looking to make some noise this postseason.
In College Corner this week, we’ll take a look at how Maynard and other Chambersburg athletes are performing at the next level. After thoroughly scouring the internet, we’ve found former Trojans playing soccer, football, field hockey, volleyball, rowing, rugby, cross country, golf, and western.
Next month College Corner will shift its focus to Waynesboro before rotating to Greencastle and back to Chambersburg. Have we missed anybody? Please send additions for College Corner to Andy Sandrik via email at [email protected].
Below is a player-by-player look at Chambersburg athletes competing at the college level:
