Coach Mario

I was born in Colorado Springs and have lived here all my life. I am a Senior Engineering student at UCCS studying for my Bachelors of Science with a Major in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Aerospace Engineering. I am an avid hockey fan (Go Avs), and I have been in love with soccer my whole life. I played soccer as a child, along with basketball. I discovered Soccer buddies when searching for a second job in my junior year of college. I have since grown very attached to the program and the work and service we provide to the youth of our community. Connecting with the kids, watching them grow and learn in their love and skill for soccer through the work we do is inspiring and truly an incredible experience. I've said to those closest to me that if I were able, I would be a coach for Soccerbuddies for free, because the smiles, laughs and experiences I get to share with the kids is extremely rewarding in itself.
