Danish Dynamite

Goals for a trip to Denmark: Prepare for the season. Flex muscles.

Heading to Denmark with the men’s soccer team this past summer, head coach Cam Rast ’92 had three goals: One, prepare for the season. Two, have the players flex their muscles in a competitive setting. (Rast says, “We now know what teams can do and how to organize ourselves. We just have to do so with a higher intensity.”) And three, include cultural immersion. With the World Cup going on, Denmark was ablaze with national pride. After getting past the jet lag, the Broncos were jazzed to see their sport take center stage—and they pulled out a win toward the end of the trip. Hosted by the professional club HB Køge, the Broncos also saw teammate Valdemar Andersen ’18 try out for the Danish team. He’s a native of Aarhus, Denmark, and studied accounting at SCU—while captaining the team his final two seasons. Bonus for the Broncos: They returned home to open the season with a win over San Diego State.
