Bio: Player and Coaching Experience – Learning and volunteering more each year – 18 years
I was able to play (and referee) youth soccer in Memphis, TN, Yuma, AZ and Warrington, PA growing up (1973-84) because my father was a volunteer coach and FIFA State referee. Many children were able to play soccer because my father volunteered, I feel it is very important!
When my daughter started playing with AYSO in Sahuarita, AZ at age 5, I felt it was time to volunteer and be available for any youth that needed a coach and or team (even a referee). Some of my best memories growing up were of soccer played around the country. Many of the local parents also wanted to help provide great memories and experiences for the children of our area so we have done this by building a new competitive club (Southern Arizona Soccer Club) and are growing/teaching local coaches to become licensed coaches and at higher levels each year. With the help of a great League, SASC coaches develop players.
I am a Marine, Project Manager, Fire Sales Engineer and Fire Fighter (FF-Chief) and love aviation and flying. I also love my community and soccer in Pima County.
