“I am humbled and excited to join Emmanuel College and driven to build EC Men's Soccer to compete at the highest level on and off the field while creating an impactful experience to equip student-athletes to impact the world for Christ,” says Starr.
Starr comes to Emmanuel after serving as the Head Coach at Malone University of the Great Midwest Athletic Conference.
During his time at Malone, he helped the program reach milestones that they had never seen before. Starr helped guide the Pioneers to their first-ever Great Midwest Athletic Conference playoff appearance in program history. In Starr’s only full season at the program's helm, he led them to the highest overall win percentage of a season since 2011, a five-game unbeaten streak in conference play, and All-Conference performing athletes.
Before Malone, Starr spent three seasons as the Head Coach of Sheridan College, in Sheridan, Wyoming, from 2016-2019. Starr led this program to new heights as well, guiding the Generals to their first winning season in school history and a berth in the NJCAA Region IX Tournament. In three seasons as head coach, Starr turned around the Generals from three conference wins in three years, to a second-place regular-season standing in 2017 & 18, and a Conference Tournament Finalist in 2018. He guided the program to an overall record of 19-13-5 in three years as the head coach.
Starr began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant for the women’s soccer team at his alma mater, Colorado Christian University. During his playing career with the Cougars, he was twice named Impact Player of the Year.
Starr graduated from Colorado Christian University in 2010 with a Bachelors in History. He received his Master's degree in Recreation and Sports Science from Ohio University in 2015.
Starr played soccer professionally for two seasons in the Austrian 2. Landesliga for SV Hirschstetten in Vienna. As a midfielder, he led the club in goals and minutes played.
Along with his coaching and playing experience, Starr is also a board member for InSoccer Outreach, based in Vienna, Austria, which uses soccer as a platform to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He serves as a Board Member with the organization and as a Camp and Tournament Director.
