When I was young, there was a professional soccer player named Luu Dinh Tuan and he was 17 years old. He was a well known soccer player who commanded a big paycheck and lots of respect from the people in my country. He had nice cars, fancy clothes and the biggest house in the land. His name was always on the front page of the town newspaper and the sport magazines. I remembered one time Mr. Luu came to my class and spoke to us about how to become a good soccer player.
This great coach brought out so much more in my game than I could have possibly imagined just because he knew how. It is these little pieces of gold that help make good soccer players, great ones, and it is my dream to be able to pass this knowledge onto college players in the game that has been so very good to me.

It is my professional soccer experience, technical and academic knowledge, and love for the game that will make me a great collegiate soccer coach. There is so much more involved than just being a soccer coach at the college level.

This is why I choose to write about the champions league final in Barcelona, 26 May 1999. I started off following Manchester United football club from about the age of six (when I first heard of real league football) and - as you can expect - it was mainly their successes that drew me in. Despite this, it did not take me long to decide which club would be my number one choice for life. When my dad was young he was a supporter of Aberdeen and Manchester United.
