Coaching Staff / 2018-19

Team: Girls Varsity Soccer
Position: Head Coach

I have been coaching club soccer in Riverside since 2009. I am currently the President of Riverside MGFM SC. My greatest achievement as a coach is to see the success of my players both at high school and college. I gain the most joy watching my former players transition into great young adults. I have many players continuing their soccer career in college and it is great to see them enjoy the wonderful experience of playing collegiate soccer

I have been married to my wonderful wife Maureen for 23 years. We have three daughters, Caitlin, Erin, and Delaney. Caitlin and Erin both played at King and my proudest moments were to see the academic success they had while playing high school soccer. They both have continued to play soccer while in college and I still treasure going to their games.

We are members of the Grove Community Church and I have had the honor of volunteering with the Children’s Ministry for the past 14 years.

My goal as coach is to provide a positive learning environment where my players can be educated, encouraged, and inspired to be the best students that they can be. I will stress the importance of character, compassion, and courage at all times.
