Alex Trent enters his first season as a coach with the Reivers, after playing at Iowa Western in 2014 and 2015 under former head coach, Jordan Carver.
As a student-athlete and Presidential scholar at Iowa Western, Trent's teams finished with a combined 40-2-6 record along with 3rd and 5th place finishes at the NJCAA national tournament.
After his playing career at IWCC, Trent transferred to Ottawa University in 2016, where he would go on to become captain and a KCAC All-Conference performer.
He spent time in the USL League Two and went on several professional trials, but repeated injuries and surgeries over his collegiate career have put his playing career on hold.
Trent was named an Academic All-American at both IWCC and Ottawa and also received various other academic honors.
Coach Trent has spent the past three years coaching at Sporting Kaw Valley soccer club in Lawrence, Kansas, as well as interning and growing in the field of sports performance.
He is currently working on a master's degree of science in health and human performance, the NSCA Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist certification, and the USSF "D" Coaching License.
Coach Trent is the Director of N.E.S.T. and coaches the U11 girls select team for Council Bluffs Soccer Club.
Coach Trent had this to say about joining the Reivers, "Iowa Western has always been home for me. I'm thankful for this opportunity to rejoin the program and again be part of the culture of excellence that is the Iowa Western Men's Soccer program."
