3 QUESTIONS FOR WALLENSTEIN

Biggest soccer influences and why?

“My biggest soccer influence are my goalkeeper coaches who taught me all my skills and support me in bad times and my mental coach who helps me to deal with setbacks.”

Do you have an idol or hero?

“Soccer: Marc Andre Ter Stegen, Manuel Neuer, Bernd Leno

Other: Elon Musk, Steve Jobs” 

Why Yale?

“I decided to go to Yale because it is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to earn one of the best college educations in the world and I really appreciated the effort Coach Stannard made to recruit me. Moreover, I want to help bringing the soccer program back to the top again so that we can compete for the Ivy League Championship in the coming years.”

Stannard On Wallenstein: “Tom comes from arguably the best youth academy in Germany and a Bundesliga club that has skyrocketed to success at the top division in Germany.  He is in an extremely competitive and professional environment on a daily basis and this level of experience and background will be a great addition for our program as we continue to build a competitive soccer culture.  Tom gets excellent coaching in all aspects of the game and his work rate and attention to details of his position are excellent.  Tom reads the game at a very good level and has great understanding and connection with his back line which is critical for a goalkeeper.  His positional understanding is very good and he does a very solid job of organizing players in front of him to help make his job easier by getting guys in the right places to make plays.  When called upon, Tom’s positioning, reading of the game and technical ability usually allow him to make the necessary plays you want your goalkeeper to make.  Goalkeeping is the toughest position in the game to adjust to from the youth level to Division I college soccer but we expect Tom to come in immediately and push our other GKs for the starting position.”
