How did you get involved with CAL girls’ soccer? All three of our daughters went to CAL and played soccer so I’ve been around girls soccer for quite a while. I’ve been blessed to have coached the past 8 years at CAL and have coached some incredible young ladies.

How does your relationship with Jesus affect your coaching style? I remind the girls that everything they do in athletics during a season is a chance to glorify God with their talents and abilities. They have the opportunity to point others to Christ throughout the season, while honoring and glorifying God.

In what ways does your team try to be distinctive? We play at the highest level of competition with humility and our faith always at the forefront. When competing, we try to encourage our players to share and represent their faith with everyone they come into contact with...referees, opponents, coaches, etc.

Which Bible verse do you rely on most? Zechariah 4:6. It has been a verse our team has adopted over the last couple years. We reference it throughout the season and at times the girls write “BHS” (by His spirit) on their hands or tape as a reminder that no matter how much God has blessed them with their ability and talent, it is only possible “by His spirit” that we can achieve much.

What makes you laugh out loud? Our granddaughters, Brooklyn and Ava. They are such a blessing and full of joy and life!

What motivates you to coach? Watching a player put into practice what we have worked on in training, to see the when, where and whys click in their head and execute it on the field.

What is your vision for the boys’ soccer program? To build a culture that expects to win. To make CAL THE place to want to play so that kids and parents know the boys will grow in their faith while learning to become a better person and soccer player.

How has soccer, coaching or playing, impacted your relationship with Jesus? Jesus has impacted how I see the game more than the other way around. I look at what He did for us through the crucifixion and what the Spirit continues to do, and I realize that it’s only a game and that there are a lot more important things in life. That doesn't mean you don't do the very best you can ...Colossians 3:23-24 says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord..." there is no reason to not put up a full effort.

What do you love most about coaching soccer? The impact I can have on the players. Coaching as long as I have, I have players I coached 15, 20 years ago come up to me and say I impacted them in some way or another.

Why do you think soccer is the most popular sport in the world? Mainly because it’s cheap and all you need is something round and a flat spot and you can get a game going. One of the reasons I love it is because it is decided on the field, by the players in real time... unlike football where every play is decided by the coach or basketball that stops every 4 minutes for a time out and the coach again decides what plays need to be run. In soccer its just general ideas...we as coaches can convey but the players must adjust to the fluidity of the game at all times.

Best World Cup Matchup? Portugal vs Spain: its the 1st meaningful game of the tournament. I also want to see Argentina vs Iceland.
