The Burr and Burton Boys Soccer program was started by math teacher John Eckhart in 1963 and achieved prominence under history teacher Ed Latz in the 1980s, when the team won two state championships.
Head Coach Pete Mull began working with the boys soccer program in 1990. After taking the Varsity position in 1991, he led the team to a third state championship in 1993. Coach Mull left the program to administer the Norshaft Youth Soccer program, where five of his children played. During those years, the team won another five state championships under Coach Pete McNealus and Coach Dan Favreau.
Mull returned to the program in 2005 and assumed Head Coach duties in 2007. In 2009, the team went to the Div. I State Finals and then won back to back championships in 2011 and 2012. The 2012 team went 18-0 by defeating another unbeaten team in the finals.
Under Coach Mull, the program places a high premium on sporting behavior, on team play, and on making continuous improvement, regardless of ability.
Assistant Coach Brenton Pinkus has been with the varsity boys soccer program since 2004, winning 2 state championships with head coach Pete Mull in 2011 and 2012.

An ex-professional player from South Africa, he enjoys staying connected to the game and often organizes practice games with the local players to keep the varsity team sharp during the season. He is also a local Chiropractor and father of 3 daughters who all play soccer at a high level. Coach Pinkus played professionally with the Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa, and Crystal Palace in the UK.
