I think the coaching staff, while not only being the most prepared and dedicated coaching staff in the country, are also comprised of some of the most genuine people I've ever had the pleasure of being around. Aside from soccer, they truly care for all of the guys and want to see them succeed on and off the field. They've helped me in so many ways and have truly helped me grow as a person.
