I was born in Oklahoma City in 1981, I have been playing soccer since 1986. Soccer has been much more than just a sport for me, it has also taught me life lessons and values, which are instilled in me to this very today. Those are the lessons and values that I want to pass on to the new generations a soccer players today.  Integrity, Passion, Respect, Leadership, Dedication, Self-Respect.
