Ben Naseman spent his life moving around, living in different locales before settling in Richmond in 2002.
That childhood led to a passion for soccer.
Now, he will transfer that passion to a coaching position leading the Richmond girls soccer program.
“I am the most excited to contribute to the pride and growth of these student athletes on and off the field,” Naseman said of taking over the program. “Soccer is a beautiful game, and I am looking forward to sharing that beauty with the players, fans, and Richmond Community.”
Naseman is a 2006 graduate of Seton Catholic and he played at St. Francis in Fort Wayne on a scholarship. The Belden employee has coached numerous youth programs over the years before landing the head coaching job with the girls program.
He lives in Richmond with his wife and nine-year-old daughter.
The Red Devils are set to take the field in the coming weeks and Naseman is excited to get to work with his new team.
“I am dedicated to nothing but the best for my athletes and RHS,” he said. “We will work diligently every day to grow and succeed through hard work, fundamental excellence, team play, and sportsmanship.
“We want to bring pride, fun, and excitement every time we step on the field.”
Naseman looks forward to being a part of the overall Richmond athletic tradition.
“If I am not at work, or on the field, you will find me at other Richmond sporting events,” he said. “On behalf of myself and my family, I thank the Richmond community for the opportunity and we look forward to making you proud! WeRRichmond! Let’s get to work!”
