Coach

Coach Sam has been part of the Soccer Shots coaching team since Spring 2020.

From Sam: “I graduated from Timberland High School in 2019. I will be starting my second year at Maryville University as a Psychology major. I started playing soccer in 2005, at 4 years old. I played all throughout high school and decided not to play in college, so I played for 14 years. I started coaching at Soccer Shots spring of 2020, but I have helped with younger teams in the past. I have worked multiple summer camps (VBS, College for Kids, etc) and worked some summer school. My mom is a 1st grade teacher, so I learn from her every day. I have gone to help in her classroom and I have so much fun with her students! My favorite thing about Soccer Shots is the bond that I build with the kids. They are always so excited when I walk through the door and they always want to learn. Seeing the progress that these little kids make in just 10 weeks makes everything worthwhile! Fun Fact: My favorite fast food restaurant is Freddy’s. Nothing beats their burgers and fry sauce!”
