Covenant Names Bosgraf Assistant Men's Soccer Coach

Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Covenant head men's soccer coach Nathan Pifer announced that Scott Bosgraf has been named the program's full-time assistant coach. Bosgraf replaces Drew Courtney, who left recently to become the head coach at Bryan College.

"I feel very blessed to have an opportunity to work full-time at Covenant College and specifically with the men's soccer program," said Bosgraf. "Covenant soccer has a great tradition both on and off the field and I look forward to working with coach Pifer and the returning and incoming players.
"

Bosgraf is no stranger to the Covenant men's soccer program. He played for the Scots from 1985-88, under longtime head coach Brian Crossman, and graduated in 1989. In his senior year, Bosgraf was a team captain, an All-NAIA District 24 and All-South third team selection while ranking 17th in the country in assists per game. In the late 1990s, he returned to be an assistant coach under Crossman through the 2004 season. After a short stint away from the program, Bosgraf came back to Covenant in 2009 as the goalkeeper coach for Pifer and held that position through the 2013 season.

He has been active in the coaching field at various levels for many years. Bosgraf is currently the head coach for the Chattanooga FC Club team and an assistant at Baylor School in Chattanooga. From 2009-11, he was an assistant for Crossman with Chattanooga FC. Bosgraf was a head coach at East Ridge Soccer Association from 2009-12 and led his U18 Boys team to a Division II state championship in 2011. Additionally, he has served as a coach, board member and director for the Lookout Mountain Soccer Association.

"It is rare to gain a full-time assistant with the experience Scott has and I am excited about him moving into a full-time status with the team," commented Pifer. "He brings a wealth of soccer knowledge and maturity that will help the Covenant soccer program immediately."

"Coach Nathan Pifer and Dr. Brian Crossman have had a great impact for Christ on many lives, including mine, and I greatly anticipate carrying that work on as a member of the coaching staff here at Covenant," added Bosgraf.

Bosgraf and his wife, Lansing, live on Lookout Mountain, Georgia and will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in August. The couple has three children, Alexandra (21), Hamilton (20, attending Covenant this fall) and Mya (15). They are members of Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Fourth Of July, 2015

As one who is about good and fed up with being “socially correct” so less than 10 percent of us can dictate how the other 90 percent of us ought to think, I am going to pause today in order to share a wonderfully fun email that has been around for a while. It is aptly called, “You Could Have Heard A Pin Drop.” Before I do, I got a sweet note the other day from my dear friend ... (click for more)
