Five Towns College continues to grow its soccer program, and on the men’s side has named Brendan Wells as the team’s assistant coach. He joins the staff of Jason Fiscina, who was named the team’s head coach in December.
No stranger to the Long Island soccer scene, Wells during his MacArthur High School playing days was named All-Conference and All-County and played in the Exceptional Seniors game.
During his collegiate playing days at SUNY Cortland, he was a three-year member of the men’s soccer team. During the 2008 season, Wells was a member of Cortland’s SUNYAC Championship team.
After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Economics, he spent a season in Rome, Italy, where he played semi-pro ball.
“Brendan’s playing experiences at both the collegiate and semi-professional levels will make a great impact on our program,” Fiscina said. “Brendan’s work ethic and high soccer IQ will be a great asset. We are lucky to have him on our bench.”
Since being named coach in late 2018, Fiscina has been charged with recruiting in an effort to have a team for the season this fall. Currently the girls varsity basketball head coach at Friends Academy, he works as a special education teacher for the New York City Department of Education.
At the high school level, Fiscina has been an assistant coach in lacrosse and soccer at Friends Academy and head coach for Plainview JFK Middle School’s boys soccer team.
As a high school athlete, Fiscina was 10th in Nassau County for goals in his junior year at Plainedge High School. He was named captain of the varsity team for his senior year and was a United States Army Reserve Scholar Athlete.
He was a member of the Molloy College Men’s Soccer team from 2007-2008, where he was a part of the East Coast Conference Championship team that appeared in the NCAA East Regionals.
