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? All 3 of my sons play soccer and I love this school. Working with the CAL soccer team and seeing the boys and their heart for God was impactful. To mesh my faith with my favorite sport is something I’ve always wanted.

What is your vision for the boys’ soccer program? I hope to bring integrated consistency in our coaching and style of play at all levels. I hope to make the transition from middle school to JV to Varsity smoother and more effective.

How has soccer, coaching or playing, impacted your relationship with Jesus? As my walk with the Lord developed, I was able to see how soccer and my relationship with God go hand in hand.

What do you love most about coaching soccer? I love the competitive nature of it and have had a huge passion for the sport since I was a little boy. I especially like that it’s a ‘thinking man’s game”…it’s more than just physical, it takes creativity to play as well.

Why do you think soccer is the most popular sport in the world? I think it offers a good balance of physical and mental play. You aren’t limited by size or height and it is accessible to everyone...all you need is a ball.

Best World Cup Matchup? Holland vs. England. I’ve always enjoyed Holland’s style of play.
