Michael is the founder/director of coaching for Real Kansas City, a youth development academy that continues to oversee the football development of over 200 children in the greater Kansas City Missouri area.
Michael is a former Missouri Olympic Development Program (ODP) staff member and graduate of Butler University (2011). Whilst playing for one of the nation’s top college football programmes he earned a bachelors degree in Kinesiology and Sports Science.
“Michael adds a new dimension of depth and quality to our current staff of trainers. His experience working with some great people at the NSCAA and his qualifications as a youth trainer will certainly raise the bar at the academy and breathe new life into our current programmes. Michael’s ties to the university game at various levels (D1-D3, NAIA, JUCCO) throughout the United States add a boost to our university placement sector. His background in sports science and kinesiology will have him overseeing the physical development programme for academy players.”
