Mark Trapp has been involved with Shawnee State men’s soccer since its earliest days as he was an assistant coach for the team during its inaugural pair of seasons. He returned to the sidelines at Shawnee State in July of 2003. During his absence from SSU, Coach Trapp coached high school soccer at Clay High School and became the school's all-time wins leader in the coaching ranks. He was voted SOC Coach of the Year three times, Southeast District Coach of the Year and State Runner-Up Coach of the Year. He currently holds the NSCAA Goalkeeper State and Regional Diplomas. Coach Trapp also heads up international recruiting for Shawnee State, with SSU's international recruits brought in under his leadership having a 95% graduation rate.
One of the most recent examples of Coach Trapp’s contributions to the Shawnee State goalkeepers has been 2013 senior Thomas Carbonari. Carbonari, a native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, broke the school’s single season record for goals against average in 2012 and graduates as the program’s career record holder in goals against average. Before Carbonari, Trapp helped mentor goalie Kevin Fischer to first-team All-MSC honors.
In 2014, Trapp continued to show his excellent work with goalkeepers at SSU as Brandon Pfeiffer stepped right into the spot vacated by Carbonari and obtained Second-Team All-MSC honors under Trapp's direction by recording a 1.87 goals-against-average, 54 saves, and a .711 save percentage in his freshman season.
Coach Trapp is also the director of the Shawnee Soccer Goalkeeper Academy.
He resides in Portsmouth, Ohio, with his wife Erin, son Kyle and daughter Brianna. Kyle was a member of the Shawnee State men’s soccer team from 2011-13.
