FAVORITE SOCCER MOMENT: Becoming South Central Champions in 2016 with the Dutch Lions FC NPSL squad is on top of my list, this because it was our inaugural season in the NPSL. The players were collectively a great group to work with and so incredible difficult to defeat, amazing summer.
2nd spot is reserved for the Championship with the Houston Dutch Lions FC U12’s in the EDDOA back in the spring of 2015, amazing group of boys and girl we had that season which resulted in a more than deserved Championship. Also great was winning the Texas Cup with our TPSL team in November 2013, we beat the Hurricanes after penalty kicks. Very proud moment and great for the club, the first piece of hardware for the Houston Dutch Lions FC!

The moment i got accepted in the professional academy of Sparta Rotterdam as a coach of the U14, i’ve had many great moments during my time there and learned from the best coaches, thankful and grateful for my time there, it made me who i am as a coach!
