My most memorable moment as a coach:
-heading into the last few games of the season, the teams started to pick up what it meant to play as a team. The players played two touch and completed about ten passes before sending it in as a cross which resulted in a diving volley goal. Couldn’t have been more proud of team at this moment as a coach.
My most memorable moment as a player:
-My last year as a senior captain, my University was in the first round of the Conference Tournament. We went into penalties after a long battle. It was my turn to take one of the last penalty kicks to hopefully take our team to the next round. Never had I missed a penalty in my college career and what happened next lead us out of the tournament and out of the chance of a National Title.
What you can expect from me as a coach:
-You can expect a tough but fair coach that loves to focus on teamwork and skills. The development of their skills leads to the development of the game. Knowing how to control the ball can control the game.
What I am looking for in players that tryout for my team:
-Players who are hard workers and love to play the game. Also looking for players who have that drive to win and want to learn more of the game. Winning isn’t everything but winning as far as being a great person on and off the pitch. I’m not looking for players who have been brought to play because of their parents.
