Why did you choose to play soccer?
When I was around 10 years old, I started playing soccer at school for the first time. I didn't know much about the game, but I knew that there was one way to win and that was by kicking the soccer ball in the opponent's goal. After my first experience, I continued to play because I loved how competitive it was and how much fun I had. It brings joy and it takes teamwork to win games. Also, my family are big aficionados of the game & they encouraged me to keep playing.
Why did you choose to coach soccer?
After realizing I wasn't going to make it to the big leagues, I knew I wanted to stay involved with soccer as much as possible. First, I started to referee soccer games to stay involved, but it made me realize that referring soccer games was not what I wanted. Also, it made me notice how many coaches out there do not know enough about the game. Then, I knew that all my time spent playing club ball and watching soccer games on television weren't for nothing. I want to pass my knowledge to players and want to help players become a better person.
