Jerry Seiner Coach of the Month




UYSA Coach of the Month

December 2014

Coach:  Erwin Petilos

Current Team: Heber Valley Storm U15 &U16 boys, U16 girls.

Coaching Experience: 2 years at Rye NY Soccer Club, almost 2 years at HVSC

Playing Experience: Started at age 8 and played for both school and club teams in NY.  Also played in College as a Goal Keeper                                                                                            
Favorite Soccer Teams: Manchester United and Roma

Favorite Soccer Player: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus and Italy keeper) and Roman Weidenfeller (Dortmund and Germany keeper).

Most Memorable Soccer Experience(s): In 2011, I played on a beach in Sierra Leone south of Freetown with a bunch of kids using a super old football and driftwood for goals.  It was pure fun in the universal language of sport.

In 2007 and 2009 I also played in an indoor league in Pristina Kosovo with a group of Albanian Kosovars.  I was the only American and probably the oldest player at 45, everyone else was in their 20’s.  It was so much fun.

Coaching Philosophy: I think the game is a way to teach things that will be important in life:  strategy, team work, perseverance, hard work, mental toughness…

Favorite Movie: Cinema Paradiso

Favorite Food: Paella

Special Interests: Skiing, snowboarding and surfing
