Hey all, wanted to give a shout out to the team here at mikeandmattsports for bringing me in. I look forward to bringing soccer news and analysis to this page and of course you the readers.
So this post is mainly going to be so you all can get to know me. My name is Eric Powers, my loving wife (Jessica) and I have two beautiful little girls (Haliee and Tobin). I started a little late with my love of soccer compared to most. I did not start playing or following the game until I was around 12. I quickly fell in love and it become my first passion. A year or so later I was on my first traveling team (FC United). That season we went on to place second in the state of Arkansas. A couple years later I began playing for the school teams, winning two Scholastic Cups while playing Goalkeeper. I was a two year letterman at my high school while being a three sport athlete.
My senior year would be cut short due to injuries causing me to lose most scholarship opportunities. I went on to play one season at Rockford College in Illinois. There I would spend most of my time as the starting striker. I would go on to have a few opportunities for tryouts at larger schools but I ended up deciding to head back home where I started coaching. I’ve coached for three seasons at different age groups.
Well all thats a little about me. I’m sure we will all get to know each other more in the coming future. If you wish to follow me on Twitter you can do that by adding me @soccerwithEric. You May contact me by email with questions about things at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all for reading. I will have predictions and analysis up in the coming days!
