  • What position did you play? Goalkeeper
  • Best goal you ever scored? Didn't score many. Scored an unbelievable goal during CFC training on Nestor Chacon from about 40 yards away. Absolute laser. There was nothing he could do.
  • Coaching Experience (Youth, High School, College, Professional) I have coached at the youth level at Rockdale Youth Soccer (GA), North Mecklenburg Youth Soccer (NC) and Carolina FC. I coached one season of HS at Franklin County HS in TN. I have coached collegiately at Sewanee (TN), Springfield (MA), Davidson (NC), Wofford (SC) and Limestone (SC). I coached professionally as the head coach of the Georgia Revolution in the NPSL.
  • Coaching Highlight: My coaching highlight was beating Chattanooga FC in an NPSL match in Chattanooga. At that point, no one has ever beaten them at home. The atmosphere of the match was awesome!

  • What is your favorite soccer team? US National Team and Manchester United
  • What is the most rewarding aspect of coaching kids? Making the connection between lessons that you learn on the field and how those can be applied off the soccer field. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing players that you have coached in the past grow up to become fine young adults.
  • Interesting Fact: I have an awesome wife, Jenni, and 3 great kids...Jackson (13), Sophie (6) and Selamu (4).
