Founder "Mr. Guru"
Having over 40 years of soccer experience, all rooting back to my childhood, I played barefooted and unorganized without a coach at the age of six. My friends and I played football (soccer) the best way we could. Playing soccer against neighboring streets was my passion growing up. In secondary school, I was a member of the first eleven team. I went on to play for my college as extra curriculum. Today, I still play soccer. I play in an adult league, S.A.S.A (San Antonio Soccer Association). I am also a licensed coach. I have been coaching for 40 years and 25 of those years were for the league I currently coach for when it was called Northwest Youth Soccer League in San Antonio, now it is called A.C.Y.S.O (Alamo City Youth Soccer Organization). Advancing teams to playoffs at a 90% rate, over 8 championships (4 with S.T.Y.S.A, Mission city, Cobras, and A.C.Y.S.O.) have been one as a player and a coach. I coach my children and others at both recreational and competitive levels.
