Section V Boys Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2022


Brian Amick from Pittsford Mendon High School      Brian Amick was a 3-year varsity letter winner at Mendon HS.  It became evident very early in his career that he was a natural born goal scorer.  He had the innate desire to score goals and when the ball was in a scoring position, he would go to goal with passion and vengeance.  After playing one year on the JV team he started his varsity career as a sophomore.  In his first year he scored 14 goals and added 2 assists.  Eight of his goals were game winning goal’s including the state qualifying game and the state semifinal game. The goal against Long Islands Hauppauge HS would become the most memorable goal of the New York State Tournament.  It was scored with 4 minutes 8 seconds left on the clock on a field that was earlier covered by 2 feet of snow.  People never thought the game would be played but, due to the hard work from the people hosting, they turned the field into a playable surface.  At the end of the year his teammates voted Brian the teams Most Improved Player. Not a bad start for a player that only scored 4 goals in the previous year on the JV team.

Brian’s individual statistics continued to improve throughout his last two seasons. He started every game scoring 70 goals 15 assists and 24 game winners. In three years, he helped lead his team to 54 victories 9 defeats and 3 ties. In his three years the team was able to capture 1 Monroe County championship, 2 Section V Championships and 2 NYS Championships. At the end of his HS career, Brian held or shared 6 of the team’s individual offensive records.  Individual honors include making the Monroe County All-League Team, the D&C All Greater Rochester team twice. Brian went on to make even higher honors by being selected to the New York All-State soccer team.


Upon graduating from High school Brian enrolled at Geneseo State College where he completed 4 years of successful play. He is now a successful business man in the state of Georgia where he resides with his own family. 


Sean Loucks from Webster Schroeder High School

Sean Loucks graduated from Schroeder in 2013. He began his career playing midfield and by the end of his time with the team he played striker. Sean joined the varsity team his sophomore year and helped his team to a Co-Championship at sectionals, after not advancing on penalty kicks.  The following season, Sean scored ten goals and helped bring the team to a sectional championship and state finalists. During his senior year, Sean scored 22 goals and 10 assists throughout the season where he again helped lead the team to another sectional championship. One of Sean’s favorite memories during his senior season was when he scored a hat trick against the Spencerport team, to send Schroeder to the New York State Class AA tournament for the second year in a row. Their team ended up making the final four in the state tournament. At the end of his senior season, Sean was named AGR player of the year, Section V Large School Player of the Year, and received All-American Honors. The Webster Schroeder Athletic Program provided Sean the opportunity to pursue a passion in which he was able compete and grow. It provided him the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with his teammates, many of whom still support him today. Sean wants to thank all of Webster Schroeder, especially head coach Dave Urbanksi and Assistant Coach Dave Coin for all of the support they provided him since he joined the Schroeder soccer program back in middle school.  His coaches helped provide guidance and direction to allow Sean to become more successful each year, and he often thinks back on these experiences with a sense of pride and joy. Sean is grateful to his teammates that supported him on the field, and those that continue to now that he’s no longer on it. Sean would also like to thank his family that have supported him tremendously. His parents and grandparents never missed a game, and they are here in the stands again almost 10 years later to support him in receiving this honor.

 Congratulations to Sean Loucks.

Fleming Kjoeller from Pittsford Mendon High School

In 1989 Pittsford Mendon soccer knew that they would field a very good team. They were returning 4 starters and 7 other key players from a team that finished 18-2, sharing the sectional title with Greece Arcadia.   A foreign exchange student enrolled at Mendon in the late days of October and wanted to try out for the team. After watching the team go through the early drills, everyone knew they were going to be a great team.

Fleming opened the season by scoring 4 goals against a very strong McQuaid Jesuit team.  A feeling of greatness was fulfilled as the team finished the regular season undefeated at 16-0. The wins kept coming throughout the post season. The team went through 4 sectional games by a 16-0 margin then continued through the state tournament with 3 more wins by a 13-0 margin.  The team finished the season with a 24-0 record.  Their ultimate honor came when they were selected the Number 1 High School in the country by the National High School Soccer Coaches Association/Gatorade soccer poll.  In this one wonderful season Fleming finished with 31goals, 19 assists, with 8 of the goals being game winners. He played 1,270 minutes of a possible 1,920 minutes. This means he scored a goal every 41 minutes he was on the soccer field. Fleming’s coach said, “I always had the feeling when coaching Fleming that if he had the ball in the box the results would be very positive. He seemed like he could score at will.”

At the end of the season Fleming was selected to the All Greater Rochester first team, the NSCAA First Team All-State, the NSCAA All -Region team and the NSCAA All-American team. Three of his teammates were also selected to the NYS All State Team.  After high school Fleming played 4 years at Division 1 Hartford University and upon return to Denmark played professionally with several teams.

Congratulations to Fleming Kjoeller.


Steve Burke from Fillmore HS - Fillmore Central School, 1971-74

Quite simply, Steve Burke was one of the greatest athletes in Fillmore Central School history. He was a four-year starter in baseball, and led his teams to two Sectional Titles, batting an incredible .545 average his senior year. But it is for his superior soccer prowess and for the influence his abilities had on the enduring soccer culture of excellence at FCS that we recognize him in the Section V Soccer Hall of Fame. From 1971-74 he played varsity soccer. His combined teams’ record for his varsity career were 42- 8-3 and only a 3-2 overtime loss to 70’s Section V Superpower Red Creek robbed him of a Sectional title and a trip to the State Tournament. Nevertheless, he was a team and Allegany County MVP for two years and he lives on in the top echelons of the FCS Boys’ Soccer Record Book. He is 5th in goals scored in a season with 31, and his 70 career goals topped the charts for two decades; now he is 3rd. He is also 3rd in Most Points in a Career with 170, and 2nd all-time in Most Points in a Season with 170.  When the majority of even elite Section V soccer players’ careers are winding down, Steve’s was just beginning. From Fillmore, he traveled to national NAIA juggernaut Wheaton College, where he was named MVP his freshman year and named to the Illinois All-State Team. For the next three years, he returned to play for his father Doug Burke, who in his own right is an NAIA Hall of Fame Coach for Houghton College. As a Highlander, Steve was twice more named team MVP and also selected for the New York Collegiate All-state team. As the MVP of the National Tournament, he led his team to the NCCAA National Championship. His playing career culminated in being the #1 Draft Pick of the Buffalo Stallions of the MISL.  But even then, Steve was just beginning an unparalleled college coaching career.  At Judson University he would build one of the most successful NAIA men’s soccer programs in the country. He coached his teams to 20 Conference Championships and 7 trips to the NAIA National Tournament Finals. His 6 National Championships in the NCCAA are the most ever by one coach, and he is the all-time leader in wins in NAIA soccer history with 556. Sixteen times, he was the District Coach of the Year, and 3 times was named the NCCAA National Coach of the Year. He has been the Man of Character from Judson University and is already a member of the Halls of Fame of Judson University, Houghton College, and Allegany County as a representative of his alma mater Fillmore Central School. He even earned the respect of the referees by being named a Merit Award by the National Intercollegiate Soccer Officials Association.

Currently, Steve and his wife Sharon are modeling the servant-leadership that has been their lives’ mission by serving in a Christian non-profit in Uganda.

Congratulations Steve Burke.


Coach Chris Mandarano from Gates Chili High School.

Chris played his High School soccer at powerhouse Spencerport HS where he graduated in 1982.  He is a member of the Spencerport Hall of Fame for his playing years.  He went on to study Technology Education at SUNY Oswego where he was a four-year starter and a two-time All SUNYAC team member.  After college Chris was hired the Gates Chili School District as a middle/high school Technology Teacher.  He started his coaching career at the JV level from 1987- 1991 and took over the Varsity in 1994 which turned out to be a very successful transition.  In his first year as head coach of the varsity, Chris led the Spartans to a Section V Championship, Western Regional Championship, and a New York State Championship. He had a similar experience in 2003 as he led a number six seeded Spartans to an unlikely Section V Championship.  That team continued its underdog ways and claimed the Western Regionals.  They went on to win a thrilling overtime victory to give the Spartans and Coach Mandarano their second New York State Championship.  Coach Mandarano headed the Spartans from 1994-2004.  In that time, they accomplished three Number 1 Seeds in Sectionals allowing him to be named the D&C All-Greater Rochester Coach of the Year two times, and multiple Section V Coach of the Year Awards. 

In-between his JV and Varsity coaching, he was an Assistant Coach at RIT under legendary coach Doug May (1991-1994).  That relationship is one that Chris treasures and credits much of his soccer coaching knowledge to that experience.  Chris was an Assistant Coordinator for Section V Boys Soccer for many years and also coached in the Rochester Futbol Club as his daughters (Katie and Jenny) excelled as players themselves.  Chris and his very supportive wife Kelly reside in Avon in their dream home Chris built himself.

Congratulations to Chris Mandarano.

Coach Jamie Mullen from Fillmore HS.

Jamie Mullen, Fillmore Varsity Soccer Coach, 1990-2021


A proud Fillmore Central School Eagles player, captain, and county all-star in high school, Jamie continued

his soccer career at Houghton College where he was a captain, chaplain, and three-year starter for the

Highlanders, earning NAIA Academic All-American and District 1st-Team all-star honors. As a player/coach

he organized Fillmore United, earning several Southern Tier Amateur Soccer League Titles, and played in

the Rochester Soccer League, 1st Division, earning titles with both the Geneseo Rangers and the Lima

Christians. His best contribution to Section V Soccer, however, came as a coach for his alma mater

Fillmore Eagles from 1990-2021. In that span Fillmore ruled Allegany County Soccer, winning 25 County

Titles, and dominated Class D Section V Soccer with 6 Sectional Titles, 4 New York State Semi-final, and 2

NYS Final appearances. His record of 465-98-43 places him #6 in the Section V Coaching Ranks in both

career wins (16th in New York State) and winning percentage (82.6 %, 11th in NYS). He ranks #1 in

Allegany County Boys’ Soccer in both career wins and winning percentage. Ten times, he has been

named the Section V Soccer Class D Coach of the Year (2x in basketball) and four times earned Small-

School COY honors. Twice he was awarded the Olean Times Herald Doug Burke Big 30 Soccer Coach of

the Year (named after his beloved Houghton College soccer coach), and in 2008, was named the Paul

Vienna Allegany County Coach of Year. A former Fillmore and Houghton College valedictorian, he takes

the most pride, however, in one banner hanging in the FCS gymnasium; in 2005, besides capturing a

Section V Championship and an appearance in the NYS State Semi-finals, his team earned the #1 ranking

in academic average in all classifications of New York State Boys’ Soccer. Besides coaching soccer,

Mullen led his teams to two Section V Championships in basketball and titles in both Section V Singles and

Doubles in tennis. He was recently inducted into the Allegany County Sports Hall of Fame. Now retired, he

is still coaching modified boys’ soccer and celebrates a slower pace of life with Darice, his wife of 35 years,

who is both a Section V and Allegany County Service Award recipient for her life-long support of Fillmore


Congratulations to Jamie Mullen.
