Like most about soccer: I love soccer because it is a beautiful game of passion, fun, skill, endurance and smarts! And it truly commands the respect of the whole world! I love the way it feels when you beat a team by 1 goal, in overtime and you know those 2 extra sprints you ran in practice were worth it. I love the friends, the practices, the memories, and the pain, it is a GREAT game!
Favorite Soccer Player: Landon Donovan- he shows Americans that there is still a sport for middle aged Americans. He plays the game the right way and plays hard every match.
Coaching Philosophy: My philosophy is to help kids enjoy soccer the way I do. Attempt to make it fun, while teaching the finer aspects of soccer!
