Coaching Philosophy: We will teach and encourage players to play possession style of play in our attack, with quick combinations and fast attacking sequences. Defensively we will be organized, good one vs. one and understand roles for team defending; high pressure, compact and able to shift as a team to deny penetration from our opponents.
Personal Note: Favorite food is Italian.
