Liverpool Staff Coach




I've been a resident of the Dallas-Fort Worth area all my life with the exception of a few years in Los Angeles.  My family and I currently live in Allen, and both of our kids play for Liverpool, while my wife is a manager for one of the teams.  So this is definitely a family affair for us!  Before merging with Liverpool in April 2017, I was coaching with FC Freedom.

I've played soccer as long as I can remember, and continue to this day.  In addition to the thrill of playing the game, coaching young players holds its own excitement.  I love what I do, and seeing your kids grow by scoring their first goal, making that perfect pass that we've practiced for months, or gaining the confidence to step up and defend against an opponent about to shoot, is a feeling I know all parents can relate to.  For several years I've been coaching teams ranging from U4 up to U8.  I use fun games and activities to cultivate soccer skills, while teaching your kids good sportsmanship, confidence, and to never, never give up.
