As an ex player I have loved the sport since I was 4 years old. Soccer has always been part of my life, both on and off the pitch. From my early years as a 4year old playing in my dad’s pro team peanut programs for kids, to the older training sessions, through high school, college and eventually going back to Europe and playing at the pro level I have loved the game, and the lessons it has taught me both on and off the pitch. The relationships with fellow players and coaches are priceless. Passing the knowledge of the game and teaching kids the love of the game, watching them develop, both on and off the pitch, watching their love for the game grow, leading with the game being the best teacher and showing them how to play a complete game is a great passion.
