CHICKASHA – The target remains on the USAO men’s soccer team’s back as they sit atop the Sooner Athletic Conference preseason poll.

In the poll, which conference coaches vote on, the Drovers were the unanimous pick for first, despite graduating some key players.

“We are very honored that our team is picked to finish so high in a conference as tough and loaded with quality programs and coaches as the SAC,” Head Coach Jimmy Hampton said. “It will be very tough to win the SAC, and we just hope to compete well.”
