I have been involved with football in Russia since I finished college in the US in 2014. In addition to organizing and running camps for local players, I have coached the Moscow Spartans, an amateur club with only Russian players and coaches. Last year, we became the first Russian club to ever win a game in Europe and won the CEFL Cup, upsetting the Bolzano Giants, and have managed a record of 32−3 in the last three seasons.
This was the result of putting into practice what I had taken away from the experience of working as an assistant for Curt Kuntz, now with the Miami Dolphins, and my father, a longtime coach in Northeastern Ohio, at a high school during the 2015−16 seasons. In Russia, I had to get even more creative to get results from local players and coaches, battling a language barrier and a lack of equipment in particular.
In 2011, I graduated valedictorian from Struthers High School in Ohio, where I was team captain in football (playing OL and DL) and a multiple-time state qualifier in the shot put and discus throw.
I relish the opportunity to grow myself as a coach and student of the game by working with players in Europe.
