Why I coach for TKO Premier SC: I spent my last few years playing club soccer for the original TKO Premier. I loved the experience and the coaches all around the complex daily. To see what it has become now with all the opportunities and great coaching we have within the club has created a great culture that promotes positive development and success from the youngest age all the way up to the kids ready to go off to college. I love the families and players I get to work with each and every day with a great group of coaches.
Fun fact about me: I played 6 different varsity sports in high school and earned 14 varsity letters. I was also inducted into the South Haven High School Athletic Hall of fame in 2018. However, one of the few sports I didn't play in high school is now the one sport that I love to play the most, golf.
