Although it is rarely covered by the traditional media giants of the state, Nebraska is filled with exciting and competitive collegiate soccer programs. In fact, Nebraska contains a grand total of THIRTY programs for men and women. Those thirty programs compete across a wide variety of collegiate levels including Division I, Division II, Division III, NAIA, and junior college.
Nebraska Soccer Talk is here to examine, cover, and promote all of these teams. This task has been made a bit more challenging by the circumstances created by COVID-19. Depending on the playing level, conference, and school, the season outlook changes drastically. Roster information can also be in flux, depending on the school. Despite these challenges, our staff attempted to put together the best program summaries possible. To our knowledge, we are the only outlet providing such coverage to our state’s college programs.
Just like Nebraska Soccer Talk, this column will grow and become more in depth as the years pass. In the future, we hope to provide sideline coverage of games, facility features, coach and player interviews. We look forward to the journey ahead. Thank you for being a part of our community. The sport of soccer is growing in Nebraska, and we intend to see it thrive.

Northeast Community College
Head Coach – Chad Miller
Assistant Coaches – Nathan Broekemeier
Mascot – Hawks
|Year||Regular Season Record||Conference Record|
Nebraska Homegrown Players On Roster – 5/23 = 22%
NEST Analysis – The Hawks are a newly established program, still seeking stability in all aspects of the program. Improvements in terms of skill level, organization, and facilities have come at the cost of tireless work from those within the program. Those behind the scenes improvements have translated into rays of progress on the field, specifically in 2017 and 2018. Coach Miller has taken over head coaching responsibilities for both the men and women’s programs, which is uncommon regardless of the playing level. Under his leadership, both programs will continue to grow and soon compete at the JC level. Northeast CC is a growing educational institution that seems to be constantly putting more and more resources towards campus enhancement. If the same approach is applied towards the soccer programs, the Hawks can fly high.
