Pete Milich

One needs only to check the record books to discover what caliber of soccer player Pete Milich was during his four-year Akron U career spanning the years 1960-1963. Milich still owns six of the eight individual standards: most goals one game - 7 vs. Frosburg State, 1962; most goals one season - 31, 1961; most goals career - 85, 1960-63; most assists one season - 13, 1961; most points one season - 44, 1961; and most points career - 119, 1960-63. Lettering all four years, the 6-0, 175 pound talent broke into the Zip starting lineup as a freshman and he earned first team All-Ohio all four years, first team All-Midwest three years, and in 1962 and '63 was selected to the All-American squad. During Milich's tenure as UA's right inside, the Zips captured the Ohio Collegiate Soccer Association Championship in 1960, '61 and '63. Needless to say, he was inducted into UA's Sports Hall of Fame in 1979.
