My favorite sports event/memory/moment is ...  traveling to Belgium with my youth team to play in an international tournament. My favorite coaching memory is winning the qualifiers with my 5v5 team and traveling to England to represent USA in the Gatorade 5v5 world championships. We made the quarterfinals and lost to Mexico.
