I am 23 years old. I recently just signed with SA United this summer. Previously I worked with Austin Texans and Alamo Fire, and currently, as well work with Soccer Shots during the day coaching 2-7-year-olds at local schools and parks. I have also done and still do private training in Austin and San Antonio with some of the best players in the state/country.
I have played at some of the highest levels, from club, ECNL, DA Academy, I was part of the Region 3 Olympic Development Team, playing against Mexico and Costa Rica. When I was 14 I was scouted by Watford FC who recently was just relegated from the Premier League in England. I played 3 years of college soccer at East Texas Baptist University. I was recently playing in the UPSL and USL leagues here in the United States, training with the El Paso Locomotives, and having interest from New Mexico United. Unfortunately, I tore my ACL a year ago while in training, so I am back home rehabbing and focusing on coaching.
My goal is to make a positive impact on players lives on and off the pitch and spreading as much of my knowledge as possible.
