Coaching Philosophy 


Born in country that the sport mean everything to us and what everybody calls the best game in the world. Born in Ghana which is located in West Africa all I ever knew was the game. My father played on the Nigerian national team, his brother played on the Ghana national team - its in my blood. Not only that, but how much this game means to me having played in conditions that only a few other country's would know. It's why I bring that desire and passion to the game and to desire of being the best player you can be. It takes a lot to get to that level of the greatest players out there but it's not impossible. Being on a team means more then just playing with a group of people but it becomes your family and the way I was brought up - you do anything for your family. Hard work, passion, commitment, work ethic, desire, and never stop getting better. One of my favorite quotes from in my eyes very simple:


" I learned about life with the ball at my feet" -Ronaldinho
