"I came to love the beautiful game when I entered high school. My coach at the time noticed my passion for but I needed direction. He was the first of many great coaches to always push me to make myself better on the field but more importantly as a person. Skills like leadership, value of effort and being a great team player. I try to pass this on to all my fellow players the same way my coaches have done for me. Soccer is unique and special on one way, and that is in bringing people closer together. Throughout my many years of playing/coaching, the game has allowed me to meet and connect with many different people. Many of them happen to be very close to me and I am most grateful that I have a great team of friends in my life. Thanks to soccer I have found my Legion and it is a privilege to return what my coaches have given me back to our community.
