I played 4 years in college (Grace College, Ind.), where I had a chance to play in the NAIA national tournament, and the NCCAA national tournament.  Coached and played in California one year working with U-15’s, then moved back to Ohio.  I started at Copley as the Head boys coach in 1988 and coached for 20 years.  We went to the Regional Final in 90, the State Semi in 91 and won the State Championship in 94.   I hold a "C" coaching license.  I have coached with the ODP program, run many camps for youth soccer, and just finished my second year as an assistant coach at CVCA.
