Coaching Philosophy: “I want to teach players a good brand of soccer. Where the ball is mainly on the ground and players are having to solve problems all over the field rather then aimlessly kicking it up the field. I encourage and teach players to be skillful and creative, with good off the ball movement to create moments for themselves or others. Good positional play to open up the game creating time and space for themselves and for their team mates.”
Eugene enjoys spending quality time with his wife Tonya and their 2 children Maddox and Tia.
