Honoring Three Greats

Bronco soccer stars commemorated in SCU Athletics Hall of Fame.

SCU men’s soccer marked the 50th anniversary of the program last fall by honoring a trio of Bronco soccer greats and members of the SCU Athletics Hall of Fame.

David Palic ’89 ended his career as the Broncos’ all-time assist leader and an All-American, then went on to play pro for the San Francisco Bay Blackhawks and won the U.S. Open Cup with the San Jose Oaks.

Goalkeeper Terry Weekes ’76 was selected in the first round by the San Jose Earthquakes and went on to coach the Broncos and the UCLA Bruins.

Paul Holocher ’91, one of only two Broncos with 25 goals and 25 assists in their careers, was the 1990 West Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Year and first-team All-American. He helped the Broncos to the school’s first-ever national title. He finished his Bronco career second all-time in points, a spot he still maintains today. He played pro eight years in the U.S. and Europe before turning to collegiate coaching at UC Santa Cruz and Cal Poly.
