Growing up, Coach Jon was fortunate enough to have many great soccer experiences but one of his favorites was his first ever international travel, with his youth team. Jon's team traveled to Amsterdam, Holland when he was 13 years old and had the opportunity to play against top youth clubs such as Ajax and PSV. His team toured the Ajax complex and academy and it is something he will never forget.
Jon's favorite soccer player play growing up was Mister Zinedine "Zizou" Zidane. He thinks the BEST player is probably "El Fenomeno" Ronaldo (Brazilian) but since Jon played in the midfield, Zizou was his favorite. Jon said, "kids today will never know what is was to see those two in action."
When he's not coaching Jon is working his full-time job, but in his spare time he enjoys training his 6 year old son (he loves soccer!) and also relaxing while watching sports. Jon describes himself as a "griller by heart and spirit" so he loves grilling — favorites to grill are ribeye/short ribs, Argentine sausage, and good steaks in general.
