Regional Director

As a Memphis native, "Coach Chris" grew up in Collierville TN and has been playing soccer in the community since the age of 6 years old.  His love for all things soccer, 20+ years of playing and coaching experience, and dedication to player development has been fundamental in his approach to coaching and mentoring.

 

Starting out in Collierville Soccer Association recreational program he soon transitioned into competitive soccer with the Lobos 89' boys team until his highschool years, where he joined the Memphis Futbol Club '89 Boys.  

His travel soccer career has taken him to many of the top youth tournaments around the world.  All his hard work got him an opportunity to play NCAA Division 1 Soccer at Howard University.  With a major in Psychology and a minor in Human Development, he initially ended up taking a job teaching early childhood education.  However his love for all things soccer combined with his education led him back to the soccer field in order to provide children with a similar experience. 

Coach Chris is our Program Director.  As a former NCAA Division 1 Athlete, he graduated from Howard University with a major in Psychology, and minor in Human Development. He currently holds a USSF C License.
