I’m a well traveled player. When I was young I played in academies in Bosnia, Germany & Holland. I also competed in UEFA competitions for Bosnian Youth National Team. Having been around players from different cultures, I appreciated learning new things from multicultural people. That is one of the reasons I love coaching players in Houston, it is so diverse here that it reminds me of when I used to play. I take bits and pieces from everything I’ve learned and share that with my players. I know that in order for the players to develop that I need to be able to create fun, positive, and informative practices. That is my commitment to your player. I am motivated by the energy at RISE and the enthusiasm and commitment the players show.
