Miguel's main reason for coaching is to pass along the love he has for this sport to his players! Miguel is very thankful for everything the sport of soccer has given him and takes the responsibility of coaching your kids very seriously. On a less serious note, he is better known as "Micky" in the soccer world and Miguel in the PT world!
