From coaching New River United to the head scout of Chelsea FC

When I coached the U-17 team in Blacksburg, it was because the coach at the time, Michael Emenalo, was helping scout players in Africa. He was the head coach of the Blacksburg team, but I was filling in as the temp while he traveled. Anyways, even though I was a coach, I was still learning a lot about soccer because Michael was such a good coach himself...you just knew he was going to go places. We worked together for 1 season coaching the local U-17 select team.

I heard rumors that he was now working for the EPL team Chelsea, so I decided to peep their site to find out what he did. And to my surprise he is the head scout at Chelsea now...pretty cool huh?
