Bio

Married my high school sweetheart and father of 2 fantastic kids (older daughter; younger son) that are now adults. I've played soccer for 38 years and coached for 18 years. Coaching Middletown for almost 14 of those years developing both of my children through the game. After they moved on I looked to continue my coaching path at a higher level working in Ohio South District 1 ODP for over 4 years and furthering my coaching education through classes and seminars.

Birth Place

Dayton, Ohio

Coaching Education

I have completed the National USSF D, National USSF E, National USSF F, and Youth National license courses.

Coaching Experience

Coaching in Middletown Select '02-'15 developing my 2 children in the game. Then moving to CUSA from '15-Present. During that time I've been coaching in Ohio South District 1 ODP '14-Present.

Coaching Philosophy

A player that is comfortable with fundamentals can then be introduced to building blocks that should be presented in a simple manner. Combining these simple building blocks of the game can then be used in any system or formation to achieve an elite level of play. Attacking and defending as an entire unit as opposed to only trusting one end of the unit with defensive or offensive responsibilities.

Quote

If one of your skills is not the ability to change or adjust what you thought was better or right. Then be prepared to get left behind stuck in your old concepts.
