Murray, Ky., April 26——Jarad Rosa was named the new Murray High School Boys’ Soccer Coach during a special conference inside the Murray High School

Library. Teresa Speed, MHS principal, said MHS looks forward to the next chapter in Murray High Boys’ Soccer. “We have confidence that Coach Rosa

will continue to build on the success of Tiger soccer and we are excited that he has accepted our offer to mentor and coach our student

athletes,” she said.

Rosa has been coaching for 20 years, starting when he was 17 years old. The former head girls’ coach at Murray High, Rosa led the Lady Tigers to regional

tournament berths and state runner up in the All A State Tournament over a four year period. He then moved to Marshall County as an assistant coach over a five

year period, where teams he coached finished with a 75-17-10 record.

Rosa has played the game of soccer since he was five years old. A native of Marshall County, Rosa played in the Marshall program from eighth grade

through his senior year. He was part of three regional championship teams and two Elite 8 teams. Following graduation, he continued his soccer career at Mount

Mercy University in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Rosa holds USSF and NSCAA Coaching licenses and has served as Soccer Association President for a short time. Following high school coaching, Jared has

continued to work with and mentor youth and club programs in West Kentucky. He currently coaches and provides leadership with the Revolution Soccer Club in

Murray. Rosa has enjoyed his time away from high school soccer devoting time for his family. However, when the boys’ soccer position opened up with the

Tigers, he decided the time is right to get back into coaching at the high school level.

Rosa received his degree from Murray State University, where he met his wife, Maria. They have two children, Max and Oliver, and reside in Murray.

Speed said Rosa is replacing Martin Son who is moving to the St. Louis area this summer. “We would like to thank Martin Son for his dedication and

contributions to our program. We wish him and his family well as they make their move to the St. Louis area this summer,” Speed said.
