Jon Anderson ’75, who was inducted into the Babson Athletics Hall of Fame in 2013, enters his 32nd season as the Beavers’ head men’s soccer coach in 2017.

Anderson, who ranks ninth among active Division III coaches and 21st all-time in wins (381), has posted 28 winning seasons while winning .669 percent of his games over the last three decades. He has led the Babson to the postseason 21 times, which includes 16 NCAA Tournament appearances. The Beavers won a school-record 18 games on their way to reaching the national semifinals in 1991, and advanced to the third round in both 2010 and 2011, when Anderson’s squad posted a school-best 20-game unbeaten streak.

Anderson has earned nine conference and three regional coach of the year honors, and has led Babson to 12 league titles. The Beavers won three consecutive NEWMAC Tournament championships from 2008-10 and went unbeaten in 40 matches against conference foes between 2008-13.

Anderson’s players have earned 23 All-America honors, 68 NSCAA All-New England awards and 109 all-conference accolades. He also has seen eight players collect league player of honors.

Entering 2017, Anderson has led the Green and White to 13 consecutive winning seasons and at least 11 victories in 19 of the last 21 years. The Beavers have also reached the NCAA Tournament in eight of their last nine campaigns going back to 2008.

Anderson was a three-year starter for the Beavers, who went 56-5-4 and earned three NCAA Tournament berths between 1972-75, culminating with Babson’s first national championship in his senior year. The Beavers went 17-0-1 to record the only unbeaten season in program history, and defeated Brockport, 1-0, in the 1975 Division III title game.

A well-respected lecturer and director of the popular Babson and Perfect Touch Soccer Academy camps, Anderson resides with his family in Scituate, Mass. Two of his four children, Eric ’13 and Emily ’13, played soccer at Babson. Eric graduated as the all-time leading scorer and only two-time first-team All-American in program history.
