Read the ESPN article on FSU soccer
For the second time in head coach Patrick Baker’s four-year tenure, the Florida State soccer team was the focus of a feature story on ESPN.com.

The article focuses on the turnaround of the FSU soccer program since Baker was hired in December of 1998. Russo questions the coach about building a soccer program in the shadow of one of the nation’s premiere football teams and how that affected the Seminoles rise to national prominence.
