Joshua said, “I am excited and proud to join your team and wish to thank Principal, Kenny Collopy and Athletic Director, Jeff Schulkens for this opportunity. I am eager to meet with all the players and parents and share the passion, love, and joy I have for soccer. Coaching is an opportunity to support the athletic skills and personal development of aspiring athletes which involves key areas of training, sportsmanship, and leadership development.”
