RICHMOND, Va. - The resurgency of the VCU men's soccer program began this past fall under tutelage of Dave Giffard and his staff. The Rams' backline was the story of the season, holding opponents to just 0.79 to boast one of the best defenses in a very tough CAA.

Sophomore Brad Seymour was a big part of that stifling defense, starting all 19 games for the Black & Gold. Before heading into his offseason, Seymour sat down with VCU Athletic Communications Student Assistant Scott Wyant to let us know a little more about himself.
