Alex was part of ODP as a player from ages 14 to 17. Alex’s favorite soccer memories are playing in Spain for several months as a tryout for the mini Barcelona teams.
Alex’s favorite part of coaching is when a player learns something new and it clicks. Alex bleeds blue as a coach and has only coached for MVLA!
The coach who most inspired Alex was his Evergreen coach Joe Silvera, who was playing in their college practices at over 60 years old and still beating college players on the dribble. He inspired Alex to become a coach.
