Playing Experience

  • I have been playing soccer all my life. I migrated from Jamaica

In 1979 and played for Miami Norland Senior High School. 

  • Played for St. Thomas University for three years where we became the first

group in school history to win the Sunshine State Conference.

  • Played many years at the amateur level of which I learned valuable lessons from

former coaches and players. 

  • Most of my experiences came from playing with Thunderbolts FC here in Miami, which I then

Coached and managed for three years.

Coaching Philosophy


As a Coach I have learned many things about the game and players. Most important I have learned that

coaching, is commitment to always educating yourself about the game and passing on that knowledge to your players. Maybe, they too will become coaches.  Thus preserving our “Beautiful Game”.
