Favorite Player :  My older brother is high on the list. I grew up traveling around the Pacific NW either playing or watching him play. He was an unselfish player and a leader on the team and I admired that and aspired to do the same. Professionally, Kasey Keller showed similar traits throughout his career. Pelé (Edson Arantes do Nascimento); I will never forget the first time seeing him perform a bicycle kick on film at soccer camp.
Favorite Team :  I will always love the NYSA Angels/Angels FC. NSC Spectre rocks. Seattle Sounders FC of course!
Favorite Quote :  “I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion” – Mia Hamm
     
Personal Note :

 Circa 1982 I received an award for “Most Improved” player at Northwest Soccer Camp at Camp Casey on Whidbey Island. The award meant a lot to me at the time and afterwards I continued to work hard to play on competitive teams through high school. I think as players and coaches there is always the opportunity to improve our skills and reach the higher goals we set for ourselves.
