Coach Wade Southwest Baptist head women’s soccer coach Benjamin Wade is one of 16 contestants on the 18th installment of the popular CBS reality series Survivor.  The 37-year old is one of eight men, who along with eight women will be vying to be the last one standing in Survivor: Tocantins — The Brazilian Highlands , which premieres Thursday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m., CST.

Wade will be a part of the Timbira Tribe, as the series producers have separated the cast into two groups to start the show.

Now look I have to admit, I’m in that small percentage of people who don’t like the show and haven’t watched since the first show.  I still can’t get Richard walking around naked out of my mind.  Anyway, I need a fan of the show who can help keep my updated on what happens with coach Wade.  E-mail me and keep me in the loop.  I might even let you provide updates here on the Missourinet website.

Wade, who recently completed his fourth season at SBU, has a 32-27-15 (.534) record coaching the Bearcats. He’s been a collegiate coach at the four-year level for eight seasons with a mark of 74-49-17 (.589). Wade started two collegiate programs at schools in California and also coached two seasons at the junior-college level.
