JFC 's Trey Langois - Mr Soccer Award
All-First Coast boys soccer: Trey Langlois' season features 62 goals, State Mr. Soccer Award
Jacksonville athletes have captured their share of Mr. Football, Mr. Track and Mr. Swimming awards when state award season rolls around — but never soccer.
Until Trey Langlois.
The Bishop Kenny senior scored an astonishing 62 goals in the 2014-15 campaign, becoming Jacksonville’s first winner of the Florida Dairy Farmers Mr. Soccer award and earning local honors as the Times-Union’s All-First Coast boys soccer player of the year.
Knifing through defenses with turbocharged acceleration and blasting home dozens of loose balls around the box, Langlois set a new bar for Jacksonville soccer in a season that dispelled all the doubters.
“I’ve always been looked at as an underdog,” Langlois said. “Even when I was being recruited by colleges, the biggest thing was, ‘With your size, you might not be able to play at the Division I level.’”
Too small for prime time? Not anymore.
Two big decisions, one personal and one tactical, helped prepare Langlois to lead the Crusaders to the District 4-2A championship.
Langlois had previously split his time between soccer and football — his last game on the gridiron was the Crusaders’ epic 74-73 loss to Clay in 2013 — before committing to soccer full-time after ACC champion Clemson came calling.
“They said if you’re going to be committed to us, you’ve got to commit yourself completely and wholly, and that comes with sacrificing football,” he said. “I was willing to make the sacrifice.”
Then, Bishop Kenny coach John Auldridge decided to post Langlois on the outside of a three-man front line, where he was able to escape the attention of taller defenders and use his elusiveness to maximum effect.
“When you’re coming straight at something from up top, it’s much more difficult than from a wider position,” Auldridge said. “So I think that switch helped him quite a bit.”
After a December tournament in Tampa, where Bishop Kenny hammered traditional powers St. Petersburg Catholic 8-0 and Shorecrest Prep 9-1, the whole state had to take notice.
Along the journey, Langlois learned to handle every crunching challenge that opponents sent his way.
“His feet are so quick,” Auldridge said. “Most teams had to resort to hacking at him, fouling him to slow him down. It made him a target, and it’s very difficult to match for most teams.”
Now, Langlois becomes the latest to tread the pathway from the First Coast to the South Carolina foothills, following Nease standouts Nathan Sturgis (currently with the Houston Dynamo in Major League Soccer) and Michael Melvin in wearing the orange of the 1984 and 1987 NCAA champions.
At Clemson, he’s expecting to change positions again, this time to an outside fullback position where he can use his lightning launch to zoom upfield into the attack.
But even though his new role is defensive in name, Langlois isn’t planning to stop his goal-scoring ways anytime soon.
“At the collegiate level, that’s one of the main attacking players,” he said. “They like to get them up forward. ... I’m trying to start as a freshman. I’m going to work my tail off in order to get that starting spot.”

Proud Partners Armada & Jacksonville FC
Armada FC and Jacksonville FC announce major youth soccer partnership
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (February 3, 2015) – The Armada FC, Jacksonville's new professional soccer team, announced an innovative and exciting partnership with one of the city’s biggest youth soccer clubs, Jacksonville FC, which will see both clubs come together to establish a dynamic structure of soccer progression in Jacksonville from youth to professional level.
The wide-reaching partnership, which includes co-branding of both clubs, will see Armada FC and Jacksonville FC team up to create a continuous “player pathway” soccer structure that seeks to develop the city’s best young male soccer talent at the competitive level of the game, starting immediately with JFC’s Boys U14 DA team and the JFC U12-U18 Elite level teams feeding into the Armada’s growing soccer development program. The new elite teams will be re-titled the JFC Armada. Through the efforts of Armada FC, JFC and JFC’s strategic partners, the goal will be to identify and develop future Armada FC reserve and first team players while nurturing some of the region’s best young soccer talent.
To aid in the development of the partnership, Jacksonville FC Executive Director Eric Dade, will join the Armada FC staff as director of soccer development. Both clubs plan to work together in their pursuit of earning all age groups of the United States Soccer Federation’s Development Academy.
Commenting on the partnership which marries the fourth-largest youth soccer club in Florida to Jacksonville’s professional soccer representatives in the growing North American Soccer League, Armada FC owner Mark Frisch, said: “We are excited to announce this extensive partnership between Armada FC and one of the best youth soccer programs in the country in JFC. We are looking forward to combining our resources to develop some of our region’s best youth soccer talents and to provide a pathway from recreational youth soccer to the professional ranks through the Armada.”
JFC President, David Proehl, said: “JFC is excited to be partnering with Armada FC to help elite level boys aged 12-18 achieve their soccer goals through the USSF Developmental Academy Program. Teaming up with a professional soccer club of the standing and quality of Armada FC has been part of our strategic vision and more importantly, provides players, coaches and referees a proven pathway not offered anywhere else on the First Coast.”
Armada FC General Manager, Dario Sala, added: “We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Eric Dade as our first director of soccer development. Eric will become an integral part of our coaching staff and brings decades of experience not only in playing and coaching soccer but also specifically in developing youth talent.
“We are excited about the possibilities that teaming up with JFC will provide in not only finding future players for the Armada reserve and first teams, but also in further developing the depth of youth learning in our region.”
In addition to his new position at Armada FC, Eric Dade will continue to serve as JFC’s Executive Director and US Development Academy Director said: “Having the opportunity for JFC to partner with Armada FC is extremely exciting. I am thrilled to be in a position to bridge the relationship between Armada FC and JFC’s youth development. Furthermore, Armada FC’s ownership, front office and soccer staff have demonstrated a passion for the game and are committed to seeing the sport grow. This in every way mirrors who JFC is and what we stand for. This partnership shows that both organizations are dedicated to having a significant impact on players, coaches and soccer enthusiasts in our community”.
Dade comes to the Armada with over 28 years’ experience in professional and youth soccer development. A college standout at Virginia Commonwealth University, he went on to play professionally in the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) with the Dallas Sidekicks and Baltimore Blast before moving to the Dallas Burn/FC Dallas of Major League Soccer.
Dade has coached at all levels including the US Men’s and Women’s National Team programs at U18 and U14 level. The former JU Women’s soccer assistant coach currently serves as the Director of the US Market Training Center in Florida and the US Club Soccer PDP Director (Florida) & Id2 Staff Coach.
