I think it is important for a team to become a caring social unit. I try to get all players to reach their highest potential as an individual while playing as a team and having a great time.
The first team I head coached was my two oldest sons U-8 team in Macon, Georgia. We won the City championship after going .500 in league play. I still have the little trophy that says "Champions".
My favorite English Premier team is Everton. I also like the LA Galaxy in the MLS. Sir Alex Ferguson of Manchester United is my favorite coach. We both believe in a strong defensive line.
I have 4 grown children, 3 sons and a daughter, all of whom played high school soccer and one who played in college. One son and my daughter played lacrosse in both. My hobby and passion is coaching soccer but I do find time for golf, my antique Pontiac, renovating houses and did I mention, I have a brave wife Mary who says I don't spend enough time at home? Dan has also been known to sing Irish ballads and country and western songs to his teams.
