Why do you coach for ESC?  
"I coach for ESC to provide players of all ages and abilities the opportunity to learn and play the game that has been part of my life for over 35 years.  Growing up and playing soccer in Omaha I was fortunate to play for many wonderful coaches, some of whom are still coaching today and it is those experiences that I want to share with future generations of soccer players.  Coaching soccer for ESC is more than coaching one team - it is coaching a culture and a community of players."
