A message from JR:
I was given my first opportunity to coach soccer at Hope Middle School. l coached for three years and helped direct their new soccer program. I have been coaching at AUFC for the last eight years starting at the U17 age group, then moved to the U12’s and have continued to move up with them now at the U14 age level. I have played competitive soccer since I was 7yrs old through Duke City League, high school, then adult league premier division. I enjoy teaching our youth the game of soccer, to have the passion and desire to better themselves, and to have lifelong skills to become positive influences as they enter the game of life.

William grew up in Houston, Texas and played soccer at the club and high school level. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Earth Science from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and studied abroad at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, United Kingdom. After settling back in Houston and working for six years in chemical manufacturing, he transitioned to a career in education as a sixth and seventh grade reading and writing teacher. In his first year of teaching, he started the Northbrook Middle School Soccer Club, an after school program open to all students interested in soccer, and he became the Head Eighth Grade Boys’ Soccer Coach. He moved to New Mexico in the summer of 2022 and completed his US Soccer D License certification. William was fortunate enough to have youth coaches who helped him fall in love with the game, and he wants to be one of those coaches for the next generation of young players.
