Bio: I am a retired US Air Force disabled veteran who has been conducting Professional Soccer Analysis since June 2012 and most recently returned to the world of coaching soccer after a 14 year break, I am an Assistant Coach with Forest Grove High School Varsity Boys Soccer as well as Aloha United Football Club. During the summer I also work as a Portland Timbers Regional Youth Training Program Coach. My philosophy is advocating controlled possession-based soccer. I teach players 'how' to play soccer once they've mastered the technical skills needed to control and pass the ball on the pitch. My background in soccer started in the United Kingdom, where, as an American, I was the General Manager and President of an English Youth Football Club just outside of Thetford, England. (Barnham Bulldogs FC). I also served as a head coach for Boys U-11/12's, and obtained my English FA Youth Team Managers' License Certification through Norwich City FC in 1995. Upon returning to the U.S., for three years I was an Assistant Coach and eventually a Head Coach within the Ajax Youth Football Club organization, Kent Washington. I currently offer up my own brand of soccer analysis on my web site http://www.possessionwithpurpose.com My work/research has been published as an academic paper in London, England (International Science & Soccer II) 2016 and has been twice presented at the World Conference on Science & Soccer (2014 & 2017). In previous years I appeared regularly on Comcast Sorts Northwest "Soccer City PDX" TV show - wining a regional Emmy Award in 2016. I retain COPYRIGHT on The Possession With Purpose ideas and research published on these sites.
