How you got into football: Was introduced at the age of 5 to the game by my mom (Her favorite sport as well) and I fell in love with it instantly. Since that point, I have always either played or coached. To me, this is the greatest sport on the planet; the lessons of teamwork, dedication, hard work, and determination are on display more in one play in football than whole games in other sports.

In His Own Words:
Football has always been such an important part of my life. It has taught me more life lessons than I can count and it has provided opportunities for me that would not have been possible without it. My hope for women’s football is continued steps forward; better player development, better coaching, and a ton more exposure that these teams and players deserve. I originally got into coaching women’s football as a way to thank my mom for teaching me this sport as a child, but now I stay for so much more. The drive and passion of these women are incredible, and they are truly some of the best athletes I will ever be blessed enough to coach.
