Coaching Experience: I started coaching soccer when my daughter decided at a young age, to follow in my footsteps and play the greatest game on earth. She is now 22 years old, so I have been at this for a while.  I have coached both of my other kids and many other teams of all levels in multiple sports.

Playing Experience: Cougar Club. UFC.  Weber State for 5 minutes.  Various indoor leagues. 

Favorite Soccer Teams:  Any team my kids are playing on or that I coach.

Favorite Soccer Player:  Abby, Hank and Jed Holbrook.  Alexi Lalas is ok too.

Most Memorable Soccer Experience(s): Winning regionals in 1995 with my UFC team and being the first team from Utah to play in the National tournament.  Having dinner with Alexi Lalas.  Traveling to San Francisco to play the U20 German National team and tying as U19.  Winning State Cups, High School and club. Hosting several players from Korea one summer and training and playing friendlies with them.  Traveling with my kids and wife to various soccer tournaments.

Coaching Philosophy:  Development over results.  I am not out here to win every game.  I like to win, but an occasional loss I feel is a good lesson to players to strive to improve themselves to compete better.  Technical skills, having fun, brotherhood, and pushing to be our best will be what we focus mainly on with my teams.

Favorite Movie: A few good men. The Hunt for Red October.

Favorite Food: Crab legs and most meat.

Special Interests: Camping, hiking, fishing, and hunting with family, and enjoying a night out with friends.
