Possessing a deft touch, skill and guile, Earl Cochrane was a mainstay with the Carleton Ravens men’s soccer team from 1989-1993.
Cochrane, a central defender, possessed a hard-nosed, yet creative style of play on the pitch where he excelled on the Ravens’ backline for half a decade. Cochrane, who served as team captain during his final two seasons at Carleton, was chosen as an OUA First-Team All-Star for four consecutive years from 1990-1993. Cochrane scored 16 goals during his career, which is the second highest total of any defender in program history, and his superb play earned him Second-Team All-Canadian in 1991 and First-Team All-Canadian in 1992.
Cochrane was named the Carleton University Male Athlete of the Year in 1991-92, as well as the Graduating Male Athlete of the Year in 1992-93. Following the conclusion of his highly-decorated university career, Cochrane played professionally in Asia. Cochrane has remained a prominent figure in the Canadian soccer community since leaving Carleton, holding a variety of roles in the professional ranks and at the national level with Canada Soccer.
