Hope all is well! Not sure if you remember me but I went on the NSA tours to Europe when I was 10 and 12. I’m the one 2nd from left in the photos.
l also played in a billion of the 7 v 7 tournaments. The whole NSA experience was very formative for me and was a key factor in my soccer career, which took me through ODP into the National Pool, on to play at UCLA with a scholarship, and then as a semi-pro in Europe until injuries made me give up the game. So for that I want to say thank you because I don’t believe I would have got that far without NSA!

I’m now a lawyer in Silicon Valley, but having been away from the game too long I have now gotten back into coaching, currently working with U8-U14 boys for Sunnyvale Alliance. I completed an NSCAA National Diploma last year and will be continuing on with my NSCAA degrees this winter in Sacramento and switching over to the USSF track.
