  • How or who got you started up in soccer:
    My dad (who is Elevation’s Founder and Club Director). Needless to say, as soon as I turned 3, I was a goner.
  • Favorite before game meal/snack
    Oddly, I can’t eat before a game. I get a ton of adrenaline, so water is and was my snack.
  • Favorite aspect of youth soccer
    No matter what age they are, when player’s own up to the technical challenges, tactical movement and game obstacles, it really is the best development to watch. Settling for less and seeing players wanting more from one another and from themselves is the reason I coach. It’s something I had to deal with when I was younger and I want to be the resource and support for those players.
