U17 MNT win against Brazil

With full credit to the young men on the field, their coaches and the USSF a big result today for the u17 team. It goes to show that developing talent from the grassroots level up is so important. Keeping teams and groups together to develop cohesion so players know the strengths and weaknesses is vital. Well done men. You made the country proud. I also applaud the USSF for encouraging strong competition. Nothing builds success like success.

No posts lately

Sorry everyone, I have not posted recently due to some other priorities at home. As I type this I am sitting at CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) in the ICU with my 7 year old daughter Abby. She is in critical/stable condition after some major complications from some minor surgery 10 days ago. My wife and I have been taking turns spending time at the hospital. It is my shift for the weekend and will go home Sunday night.

I will post some coaching thoughts later this weekend and some thoughts on some soccer that I have watched while Abby has been around.
