QUOTES FROM THE COACH
“When this opened, to come back to Columbus and work for this athletic department, and continue to build this program is a dream opportunity. It’s an honor to be back.”
“I met with them this morning and chatted with them. It’s finals week and then it’s summer time. I’m eager for August to come and for us to get after it. Believe me, I am ready to go.”
“The talent in this state is very, very good. The state of Ohio produces some of the best players in the Midwest, and in the country. One of our main focuses is to get the best kids coming out of Ohio.”
“I want people to say it is hard to play Ohio State. The key word for me is effective soccer. It’ll be tough to stop us offensively, and defensively we’re going to get after teams.”
